This is my first Tuesday's with Dorie baking challenge, and what a yummy challenge it was. Brownies are my favorite food, and little brownie bites are my favorite form of brownie. No mess, no crumbs, just pop the whole thing in your mouth and enjoy. Pure chocolate bliss, want one?
The Brownie Bites were also a breeze to prepare. Melt the chocolate, butter and sugar over a low fire.
After the chocolate mixture cools, add the egg and vanilla.
Blend the chocolate-egg mixture with the flour. I added nuts too.
Bake in a mini muffin pan for 14 minutes, carefully remove the BB's from pan and allow to cool on wire rack.
Dip the tops of the BBs in melted white chocolate. This was the only part of the recipe that I had problems with. I used white chocolate chips and they would never melt to a "dipping" consistency. I finally just spread the white chocolate on top. Not perfect looking, but still very tasty.
Side note: While roaming around my backyard snapping pictures of my BB's, I noticed something in my viewfinder…
Did you see him? Upper right corner of the picture. A beautifully butterfly sipping nectar from a bougainvillea. I think it is a Swallowtail, but I'm not positive. Here is a close-up. Isn't he/she beautiful?
