(If you’re following on Instagram, I’ve got a fun giveaway going on this week. Go check it out!)
Brownies are like chocolate chip cookies, they’re a welcome addition to almost any occasion and you’d be hard pressed to find someone who will pass one up.
Let’s face it, resistance it futile in the face of a fresh batch of brownies, each bite packing an intense hit of fudgey flavor, and these mini brownie bites are no exception.
The size of a mini muffin but with all the chocolatey goodness of a full-sized brownie, these little two bite morsels are the perfect sweet treat to satisfying your chocolate cravings. They’re substantial enough to satisfy in a couple of bites, yet small enough to reach for seconds.
The bites have all the great parts of a traditional brownie going for them: crackly edges, chewy centers and gooey bits of melted chocolate while remaining bite-sized, making them eminently snackable. Puffed around the edges the brownie bites sink down lower in the middle thanks to their rich and fudgey centers.
Like most brownies, they’re a one bowl, melt, stir and bake number making them an anytime treat you probably already have the ingredients for in your pantry. The combination of melted chocolate and cocoa powder give the brownies a rich and intense chocolate flavor throughout, while a generous handful of mini chocolate morels create melty pockets of deliciousness.
When done they should be slightly puffed around the edges but still a little soft in the centers. You’ll want to exercise the utmost patience and allow these to completely finish cooling in order to set properly before biting in, although I’ve been known to falter occasionally in that department.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
