Well, you CAN eat 16 if you want, but you also can choose just one or two and not feel "deprived," or "guilty!"
When I sold brownies to a deli in Boston, I cut them in 2-inch squares, but that was the only time. My mom always cut hers small, saying you can have as many as you can eat... and I picked right up on that. I tend to feel "guilty" if I eat FOUR small ones!
Truth is, scientists have studied how much dessert we need to feel satisfied, and the amount is approximately THREE BITES of anything.... so, small portions make the best sense, rather than giving someone a large portion and expect them to cut it down, give them a small portion and take seconds...
