How to Make Fudgy Brownie Bites

Making these brownie bites is straightforward and involves just three main steps: preparing the batter, pouring it into the muffin pan, and baking. Let’s dive into the details.

Step 1: Make the Brownie Batter

Combine Butter and Sugar: Start by pouring the melted butter into a large mixing bowl. Add the sugar and mix until the two are well combined.

Add Eggs: Next, add the eggs, one at a time. Make sure your eggs are at room temperature, as this helps them blend more easily into the batter. Mix well after adding each egg to ensure a consistent texture.

Add Vanilla and Salt: Add the vanilla powder or extract and the salt to the mixture. Whisk everything together until it becomes a pale yellow, which indicates that the ingredients are well incorporated and the batter has a nice, smooth consistency.

Sift Dry Ingredients: Sift the plain flour and cocoa powder into the bowl. Sifting helps remove any lumps and ensures that the dry ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the batter. Fold and mix just until everything is combined. Be careful not to over-mix, as this can result in a tougher texture.

Add Chocolate: Finally, stir in the roughly chopped chocolate. You can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or a mix of both, depending on your preference. The chocolate pieces will melt slightly during baking, creating delightful pockets of gooey goodness in the finished brownie bites.

Step 2: Pour the Batter into the Muffin Pan

Prepare the Muffin Tray: Grease the cups of a mini muffin tray with melted butter. This step is crucial to ensure that the brownie bites come out easily after baking. You can also use paper liners if you prefer.

Scoop the Batter: Use a tablespoon size cookie batter scoop or a tablespoon, to scoop the batter into the muffin cups. Aim for about 1 tablespoon of batter per cup. If your muffin cups are larger, you can adjust the amount accordingly. Be sure not to overfill the cups, as the batter will rise slightly during baking.

Step 3: Bake the Brownie Bites

Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Proper preheating ensures even baking and the best texture for your brownie bites.

Bake: Place the muffin tray in the preheated oven and bake for around 15 minutes. Keep a close eye on them, as baking times can vary slightly depending on your oven. The brownie bites are done when they have a crackly top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Be careful not to over-bake, as this can lead to dry brownies.

Enjoy!

Once your brownie bites are done baking, let them cool in the muffin tray for about 15 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. This will help the brownie bites to set and firm up and gain their shape. Enjoy them warm or at room temperature, perhaps with a glass of cold milk or cold coffee for the ultimate indulgence.

Frequently asked questions about Easy Fudgy Brownie Bites Recipe

Can I use a different type of chocolate?

Yes, you can use any type of chocolate you prefer. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even white chocolate chunks work well in this recipe. You can also mix different types of chocolate for a unique flavor profile.

How should I store the brownie bites?

Store your brownie bites in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. For longer storage, you can refrigerate them for up to a week or freeze them for up to a month. If freezing, be sure to let them thaw at room temperature before serving.

Can I make these brownie bites gluten-free?

Yes, you can substitute the plain flour with a gluten-free flour blend. Ensure that all other ingredients you use are also gluten-free. The texture might be slightly different, but they should still be deliciously fudgy.

Can I add nuts or other mix-ins?

Absolutely! Feel free to add chopped nuts, dried fruit, or even a swirl of peanut butter to the batter for added texture and flavor. Just fold these extras into the batter along with the chopped chocolate.

What if I don’t have a mini muffin pan?

If you don’t have a mini muffin pan, you can use a regular muffin pan and adjust the baking time accordingly. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of a brownie bite; it should come out with a few moist crumbs.

Why do I need to use room temperature eggs?

Using room temperature eggs helps them blend more smoothly into the batter, resulting in a more uniform texture. If your eggs are cold, you can place them in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes to bring them to room temperature quickly.

Can I double the recipe?

Yes, you can easily double this recipe if you need to make a larger batch of brownie bites.

How do I know when the brownie bites are done?

The brownie bites are done when they have a crackly top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Be careful not to overbake, as this can lead to dry brownies. Keep a close eye on them during the last few minutes of baking.

What if my brownie bites stick to the pan?

If your brownie bites are sticking to the pan, make sure you’ve greased the muffin cups thoroughly with melted butter or used paper liners. Let the brownie bites cool in the pan for a few minutes before trying to remove them, as this can help them release more easily. Optionally you can use a toothpick to detach the brownies from sides of the cups which will help in easy removal.
