Brown Paper Bags 02:50

Can the chefs mix and bake brownies in brown paper bags? Find out.

Cutthroat Kitchen is nothing if not punny, as Alton Brown is notorious for putting literal spins on the challenge dishes, all in an effort to create hilariously diabolical sabotages. When it came time for the competitors to make brownies for dessert on tonight's all-new big-game episode, he reached for what else but brown bags to auction off as one contestant's sole mixing and cooking vessel. These everyday bags are surely thin and weak, so would such a mandate be fair to ask of a chef, and is brown-bag baking even possible?

The Cutthroat Kitchen culinary crew set out to answer that very question as they attempted this sabotage before the contest in the latest installment of Testing the Sabotages. After a quick triple-ply maneuver to prevent batter seepage, food stylist Chelsey proclaimed, "Brown-bag brownie. Nailed it," proving once and for all that brownies can indeed be made in brown bags.

Click the play button on the video above to watch Chelsey's test unfold, and see how she attempted a two-fold approach to cooking.
