Mmm … who doesn’t love brownies? While they’re quite yummy, when made in the traditional manner, they just don’t present well. This is a quick and easy fix for ugly brownies!
.:| brownie bites |:.
What you’ll need …
a box of brownie mix and any associated ingredients (oil, eggs, water, etc.)
approx. 6 oz. white melting chocolate
approx. 6 oz. milk chocolate chips (you could also do semi-sweet, dark, etc.)
assortment of berries – I used blueberries, raspberries and blackberries
What you’ll do …
(I purchased this Wilton Brownie Squares Mold, but you could also use a mini-muffin pan.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray mold/pan with no-stick cooking spray or line muffin pan with mini paper cups. Prepare brownie mix per instructions; fill mold/pan cups 2/3 full. (Note: A typical box brownie mix will make approximately 48 minis, so plan for two batches or have two pans ready!)
Bake 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for approximately 15 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.
Melt chocolate (I melted in the microwave according to instructions on the package.) and spoon approximately 1 tsp. of chocolate over each brownie bite. Garnish immediately with fruit and allow to harden. Refrigerate if desired. (I needed the chocolate to harden quicker, so I put them in the fridge. I also prefer them cold – but that’s just me.)
If you try them, let me know what you think and what other changes you might have made. Next time, I’m going to stick with only white chocolate and mix some crazy colors in there!
