Brownie Bites

I am always fascinated by the Petite Brownies from Sugar Bowl Bakery that are available at Costco. The petite shape is not only cute but a cut to calories with out compromising on the taste and texture of brownie. These are the actual inspiration behind today's recipe which I named them as Brownie Bites. in other words mastering the brownie in a cute little miniature cup cake holders, which avoids the pain in cut and serve and you will get your own individual piece. Hence these are good for Potlucks or Team meetings at work or good for a snack pack in Kid's Lunch boxes. Here is the recipe, Check it out!

Don't forget to check it out at the bottom How I made a Birthday Message Presentation for my 7 year old who is crazy for Brownies!

Usually I am not biggie on buying decorative things that are throw away  for example Cup Cake Liners, but one day when I am browsing at Macy's these cute pastle colored mini Cup Cake liners caught my eye and couldn't resist buying them. Then it self I knew this is happening in my kitchen! I should say now I am very happy with my buy!



Ingredients:
adapted from: The Perfect Pantry

Butter - 1 cup ( 2 sticks)
Coca Powder - 1/2 cup ( unsweetened)
Brown Sugar - 1 cup
White Sugar - 1/2 cup
Large Eggs - 3
All Purpose Flour - 1 cup
Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp
CupCake Liners - mini version ( i have used martha stewart brand)

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pans with 15 paper baking cups and set aside.
  2. Mix the APF and Coca Powder in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Place the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl (I use an 8-cup glass measuring cup). Microwave on HIGH for 1-1/2 minutes, or until the butter is melted. 
  4. Add 3 eggs one at a time and beat it with a electric mixture until it is completely blended. Add 1 tsp of Vanilla extract and blend it one more time. 
  5. Then, add both sugars, and stir until well blended.  Add the dry flour mixture and stir with rubber or wood spatula until the batter is well combined.
  6. Use an ice cream scoop to fill the muffin cups 2/3 full. 
  7. Bake 22-25 minutes, until the tops are cracked and feel firm (the inside will still be moist).
  8. Remove from the oven and let the brownies sit in the muffin pan for 10 minutes. Then, remove to a wire rack, and cool completely.

Ta Daaaa, cute looking Brownie Bites are ready. I have made these for my son's Birthday who loves Brownies. As a surprise I have arranged them as his name, it took a while to guess what the message is, once he saw his name in those Brownies, he jumped up and excited. That made mama's mission accomplished which made to forget all the effort that she took in making them.

Abhi turned 7!
These can be stored at room temperature for up to 4 to 5 days ( if they last that long ;-) they will be done in a day in my family.)




Keep Smiling and Spread the Joy!
