Brownie Bites

So Mother Goose posted a brownie recipe today that looked absolutely YUMMO! Check it out!

That got me thinking, Phillip doesn't like fancy brownies, but I do. I remembered having a yummy brownie bite at a party once. So while at the commissary today I bought a brownie mix, and two types of our family's favorite candies; York peppermint patties, and Reece's Peanut Butter Cups.

Here's what you will need;

  • 1 pkg of your favorite brownie mix
  • ingredients to make it according to the directions on the back
  • your favorite chocolate candy
I mixed the brownie mix as directed on the back of the box. Then using my smallest scoop I scooped one scoopful of brownie mix into each of the mini muffin spots in my mini muffin pan. I had sprayed the mini muffin pan with cooking spray.

Keeping Phillip in mind, I put one York peppermint patty(the little ones) on 8 of the brownies, and one mini peanut butter cup in another 8 of the brownies, leaving 8 just plain.

I baked the brownies at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. They baked all the way through....but turned out to be a gooey mess that were hard to get out of the pan.
So once I got all these brownies out of the pan, no worries they are still edible and yummy just not pretty, I washed the pan. For the second batch using the rest of the mix I decided to use mini cupcake liners in the pan....and it worked like a charm! For the second batch the ones that got the York peppermint patties only got 1/2 a patty per brownie.

Second batch worked a little better, now the paper liners don't want to come off very easily. Hmmm....I will have to think on this one.....maybe the next time I will set aside a smidgen of the brownie mix to dust the muffin tin with after I spray it...or use cocoa powder to dust with.....let me know if you try one of those ideas and how it turns out.

Enjoy....I know we will.

hey! i love these. I wanted to mention I make mine slightly different. you scoop the brownie mix into the tins, bake it and then immediately after they come out you shove the candy in the middle. everything holds their form. that's how we do ours! I like the peppermint idea!
