Mini Brownie Bites and April’s Tasty Tools: Muffin Pans

mmmmm I love brownies. I love any recipe that can be whipped up in just one bowl. No need to pull out the mixer on this, just grab a whisk and a large bowl and you are all set. I love the deep chocolate flavor of these and how they are bite sized. Bite size always seems to taste better..LOL!
I found this recipe on Baking Sheet’s Site. Easy and delicious!

I am also submitting this to Joelen’s Culinary Adventures Monthly Tasty Tools event. Check out her blog at the end of the month for all the great Muffin Pan recipes!

ENJOY!

Ingredients:
6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup ap flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips, plus more for topping
marshmallows, for topping-I omitted this and added jelly beans for Easter!

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa, vegetable oil, sugar and brown sugar. Whisk in eggs one by one, followed by vanilla extract.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
Add flour mixture to cocoa mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Place 24 mini muffin cups on a baking sheet and fill evenly (about 3/4 full) with brownie batter.
Bake for 14-16 minutes, until just set and slightly firm to the touch. A tester should have a few crumbs.
Cool on a wire rack. Top each brownie with a few chocolate chips. As they melt, press a marshmallow into the chocolate (I used jelly beans. Top as you wish!). Let stand until set.
Makes 24.
