These are hands-down my favorite "go-to" recipe for instances I need to provide a quick treat for any occasion. They require minimal preparation and everyone loves them! Brownie Bites are extremely versatile. You can substitute raspberries with mini peanut butter cups, Hershey Kisses, M&Ms, etc. However, I think that the Dark Chocolate/Raspberry combination can't be beat!
To begin you will need a box Dark Chocolate brownie mix. I have tried these bites with non-Dark Chocolate mixes, and the taste isn't quite as good. After preparing the batter as directed, use a cookie scoop to fill the cavities of a greased mini muffin pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan. Place bites on a cooling rack set over waxed paper.
While the brownies continue to cool, prepare the chocolate ganache.
Chocolate Ganache for Brownie Bites
recipe by Betty Crocker
2/3 cup whipping cream
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
In a one quart saucepan heat whipping cream over low heat just to boiling. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips until melted. Let stand for 15 minutes or until mixture coats a spoon. Pour 2 teaspoons of mixture over brownie bite. Top with fresh raspberry if desired.
Really, these are the perfect sized treat and present wonderfully on a dessert table. I've used them for just about any occasion imaginable and they are always a huge hit! I'm sure you will love them, too. :)
