Mini Brownie Bites
These mini brownie bites are fudgy, delicious, and gone in two bites!
Measuring Cups or Scale
Small cookie scoop
24-well Mini Muffin Pan
- ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ⅔ cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325°F and grease a mini muffin pan with non-stick spray.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips (1 cup) and butter until smooth. Stir the mixture every 30 seconds as you microwave them.
Let the chocolate mixture cool, and then mix the sugar in really well so that it dissolves as much as possible. Then, mix in the eggs (one at a time) at medium-high speed for at least 2 minutes. It should thicken and get lighter in color. Finally, mix in the vanilla extract.
In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and mini chocolate chips. Add this to the wet ingredients and gently fold in with a spatula just until combined.
Using a small cookie scoop, fill each well of the mini muffin pan with brownie batter.
Bake for 12-16 minutes, or until the tops look slightly firm and start to crack a little.
Let the brownie bites cool in the pan and then remove them. If your pan was greased well, you should be able to give them a little twist and pull them right out. Otherwise, you might need to carefully scoop them out with a butter knife.
These can also be made in a regular-sized muffin/cupcake pan. If you make them this way, add 2 scoops of batter to each well and bake them for 15-20 minutes!
