Brownie Bites

Brownie Bites

Are you in the mood for a sweet treat? Try these delicious Brownie Bites! They have a rich, chocolate taste and are perfect for when you want “just a bite” of something scrumptious!

Ingredients

8 Squares Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
1 ½ Cups Butter
4 Cups Granulated Sugar
6 Eggs
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1 ½ Cups Flour

Instructions

1. Place the Chocolate Squares and Butter into a microwave-proof bowl and microwave them on high in 30 second increments. Stir between microwave bursts until they are completely melted and combined.

2. In the bowl of a mixer, combine the Sugar, Eggs and Vanilla, then add the Chocolate/Butter mixture.  When thoroughly combined and smooth, add the Flour and mix until combined.

3. Fill three Mini Muffin Pans (24 each) to just below the top (the brownies don’t rise much) for a total of 72 Brownie Bites.

Brownie Bites, Step 3 - Filling The Pan

The best way to do this is using a Pastry Bag. If you don’t have one, you can easily create a Makeshift Pastry Bag like the one I used (see my tip at the end of this recipe!)

4. Bake each pan at 325 degrees for 13-14 minutes.  Depending on your oven, you may wish to rotate them at 7 minutes.  Do not overcook!

5. Let each tray cool for 15-20 minutes.

6. Remove the brownies from the pans. Serve and enjoy!

How To Create A Makeshift Pastry Bag

Makeshift Pastry Bag

The best way to fill your Mini Muffin Pans is with a Pastry Bag. If you don’t have one on hand, however, you can easily make one by taking a plastic freezer bag, filling it with your batter, squeezing the batter into one of the corners, and then cutting off a very small tip. It works like a charm and is disposable – no mess to clean up afterwards!

Decorating Tip

Hot Out Of The Oven

If you like (and if they last that long!), you can dust your brownies with powdered sugar or decorate them with icing, sprinkles or the topping of your choice for a pretty effect!

      Hi Evelyn,

      For reasons unknown, I resisted buying these for the longest time, and now that I own a few – I just love them! I have been munching on these Brownie Bites since I made them (they are the PERFECT size to indulge without going overboard!) I cannot wait to try something new! If you have some great recipes you’ve done that you’d like to share using your pans – please, link them up to Inspire Me Monday with a comment so that I will be sure to see them! 🙂

    YUM!! I wonder if you could put a mini peanut butter cup in there too?? Or caramel cup? My kids would absolutely love these….I will have to put it on my things to do here soon.

      Yes, and they would be delicious! I adapted this recipe from my main brownie recipe, in which I use caramels (and they are SUPER yummy – I will have to post that one in the future!) This is my “healthy” version – lol – tiny, no caramels – but wouldn’t you know it? Hubby thinks like you and wants some added treats next time too! 🙂

      They are incredibly rich without the caramels for those of you who are wondering…

  6. Oh these look fabulous! I love your tip about using the zip-lock bag to put the batter into the muffin tin!

    I would love it if you would share this post on the Creative @ Home Wednesday Link-Up! I really think my readers will enjoy it!

    Blessings!

    I use a different recipe, but I make brownies in my mini-muffin pan most of the time. Love it. I like the idea of using a freezer bag to fill the pan. Will have to give that a try.

    Yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  26. Bunny Jean says:

    I absolutely love little brownies! The only problem is that I think they are small in calories so I eat too many. Sorta defeats the purpose.

    Thanks for sharing them at my party!

      My husband has that same problem. Last night, he wanted me to make the recipe again – but this time – to add chocolate chips to them! I couldn’t believe what I was hearing – lol!

      I told him that these brownie bites were SO rich and delicious as they were – and that the whole POINT of making them small was so we could better control WHAT we were eating (calorie wise and portion wise) – why would we want to add MORE calories back into these little bites?

      He pouted and said, “Does that mean I’m not getting the chocolate chips?”

      Have a great day, Bunny Jean and thanks for hosting your fabulous party! 🙂
