Oh my goodness, you guys. Nutella Brownie Bites. You know me. I love a good excuse to bake goodies, especially when those baked treats contain chocolate AND Nutella.
When I was trying to think of something I could bake that would be a perfect book club treat (based on this post I did for the book This is Where I Leave You – NOTE: this is not a sponsored post), I saw a picture on Pinterest that I thought would be a lot of fun. I mixed up my normal brownie batter with one alteration – I substituted Nutella for the chocolate chips that my recipe called for. That first batch completely flopped (I tried making brownie bowls. They were a mess!) but the brownie-disaster tasted unbelievably delicious. My husband and I polished off the scrapings of the muffin tin (at least the part that didn’t end up charred on the bottom of the oven) and I vowed to try again.
The next day, I made these:
Same amazing taste….but these didn’t end up as oven ashes.
Brownie bites – especially brownie bites that taste THIS good – are perfect for parties (or book clubs) because they are easy-to-handle single-servings. I will be making these again and again!
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
- ¼ cup Nutella
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Heat oven to 350°. Grease mini muffin tin (or use mini liners).
- In medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter; turn of heat. Add sugar, vanilla, and eggs; blend well.
- Stir in flour, cocoa, Nutella, and salt; mix well. Scoop into mini muffin tins; fil each cup about ⅔ full.
- Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes.
- Cool completely in muffin tin. When cool, remove carefully, loosening sides with butter knife if needed.
Note: one thing that I will do differently next time is that I will use mini cupcake liners for sure. Much easier to get out of the baking dish. Or I’ll use a non-stick silicone muffin dish like this one.
This recipe makes about 48 mini brownie bites.
