Chocolate Mint Brownie Bites

chocolate mint brownie bites  
When I was trying to put this recipe together, I had a lot of trial and error. The fun thing about cooking is sometimes failures become the next great idea. The first batch of brownies didn’t have enough flour and so the middle of the bite deflated and made a cute little brownie cup. The flavor was amazing but the brownie was a little crunchy. My cute husband suggested that we make them into brownie cups with a delicious pudding filling. This would be so fun at any party.
The second batch, we added a little more flour and it made the perfect brownie bite. This recipe turned into two ideas for the price of one!!!! The mint flavor is not over powering but just enough that you can’t stop eating them.
Ingredients:
1 box of Andes Mints
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup flour
1 Tablespoon butter
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray mini muffin pan generously with baking spray.
  • Melt 1/4 cup chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwave. Remove from the microwave and stir in 8 Andes mints until melted. Let cool a little.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream 1/2 cup butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs.
  • Turn the mixer on low, drizzle the chocolate mixture slowly, mixing until its combined. Add flour and mix thoroughly.
  • Scoop batter into mini muffin tins, about 1/2 full. Bake about 13  to 15 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes and then turn upside down and out of the pan. Let cool completely.
  • Combine remaining unwrapped Andes mints in a bowl with a tablespoon of butter and 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Microwave and stir until melted and smooth.
  • Dip the brownie bites in the melted chocolate. Allow to set for a few minutes.
