Brownie Bites

We’re loving our newest chocolate obsession, mini brownie bites with a dark chocolate twist!

The brownie bites are made with traditional cocoa powder but are filled with a hidden surprise of dark chocolate chips!

We noticed our site’s dessert section was filled with cookies, fruit crisps and pies but were seriously lacking something for the chocoholics!

While setting up a hot cocoa bar with our crockpot hot chocolate, we whipped up these brownie bites and they were irresistible!

Mini brownie bites

Mini brownies are perfect, portion controlled morsels. We like to make these and pair one with a nice rich, glass of red wine.

In order to make this recipe for mini muffin brownies you’ll need a mini muffin pan.

Note: if you do not have a mini muffin pan, you can make this in a regular cupcake pan, just increase the cook time and cook until a toothpick is removed cleanly.

We think these brownie bites are delicious plain, but you can also add a drizzle of chocolate if you’d like. Simply melt some extra dark chocolate chips with a half a teaspoon of coconut oil and microwave for 1-2 minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to stir until smooth.

Looking for mini brownie cupcakes, just add traditional frosting!

Dark Chocolate Brownies

We took a traditional brownie recipe and turned them into dark chocolate brownies by adding some dark chocolate chips to the batter.

We reached for Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips in order to ensure it was a well balanced Ghirardelli dark chocolate brownie mix.

This dark chocolate brownie recipe isn’t too sweet, which makes it a perfect complement to an ice cream sundae or to a hot cocoa bar.
