Oh the weather outside is frightful, but these brownie bites inside are delightful...just when I thought I could not think of anymore holiday rhymes my creativity gets the best of me and I can‘t help but share. Speaking of sharing, you will definitely want to bake a batch of these soft, decadent, chewy mini delights to share with your loved ones. They are so adorable and delicious. And If I am being honest, it might take a little self control with these because these are that type of treat where you can’t just have one.
Bite sized mini brownies that are covered in powdered sugar!? Sign me up, immediately. These bite sized delights will outshine any dessert during the holidays no ifs ands or buts.
Why, you ask? How, you ask? I will be happy to tell you!
To start, the great thing about these are that they are adorable and mini, so you can have more than one without the guilt. Second, they contain double the chocolate. “There is too much chocolate”, said no one ever. The batter is rich and fudgy, then ontop of that you add in mini chocolate chips for double the chocolate-y goodness in each bite. Last but not least, these only takes a short 10 minutes to bake! In the blink of an eye, these get baked to Soft chewy perfection. From the moment you take them out of you warm oven, they will be so irresistible. You won’t want to wait!
Making these has never been easier. You mix the dry ingredients, then you mix the wet ingredients, after you mix both together. Roll them into little bite sized balls, toss them in powdered sugar to coat, bake for 10 minutes and BAM! Just like that, you’re done. This is a fun kitchen activity for kids and adults. Eating them won’t be the only thing they love, they will love making them too!
If you are reading this, I am sure you will be the one baking these. With that being said, try to contain yourself and not eat all of these when they are hot and right out of the oven, because once you start you won’t be able to stop. And I can guarantee that when your loved ones gets their hands on them, one will turn into two and two will turn into three and before they know it they will have had five in one sitting! Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Hehe.
