1 Mint Topped Brownie Bites

I'm in love with anything bite sized.  When I saw dozens of people buying the brownie bites at Costco, I thought, "I can make those!"

These are a decadent, fudgey  mint chocolate topped brownies that are perfect for a bridal shower, baby shower, cookie tray or simply for no reason at all....

A very simple, elegant dessert to make.  Here's how:

Put sugar, butter and cocoa in a saucepan.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until everything is melted.

Remove from heat.



Add beaten eggs, stirring quickly and completely.








Add all purpose flour.


Stir till combined.  No special mixer or equipment is necessary!





Don't forget the vanilla.

I love the real stuff.






I used a small 1 T. cookie scoop to pour the batter into a greased and floured mini muffin tin.



Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes.



A sweet neighbor of mine gave me a bag of these Andes baking chips.  She puts the entire bag on top of a 9x13 pan of brownies as soon as it comes out of the oven.  When cooled, she cuts them into squares. This was the inspiration for these mint topped brownie bites...




I put some chips in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, which quickly melted the chips.







Dipped the tops of each brownie bite....








and set them on a rack to cool.








These were simply irresistible.
