Brownie Bites | So Cute!

For these Brownie Bites, I just made a super chocolaty brownie batter that wasn’t too terribly sweet, turned them into little mini brownies {thank you mini muffin tins} and then topped the warm little guys with some homemade vanilla ice cream.

These basically are incredible! I mean, who doesn’t like brownies, fresh and warm out of the oven with vanilla ice cream? It’s pretty much one of my favorite combinations….ever. The cold and sweet ice cream with the warm fudgy brownie bite pretty much is the reason I run….so I can eat guilt-free! Anyone else do that?

Main Ingredients Needed

Lots of pantry staples to create these cute little brownie bites. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Butter + Bittersweet Chocolate – these two are used to make a chocolatey moist base.
  • Sugar – to sweeten.
  • Cocoa Powder + Vanilla – both are used for flavor.
  • Egg – for structure and texture.
  • Salt – to balance the sweet.
  • Baking Powder + Baking Soda – both of these are used for lift which in turn creates texture.
  • Flour – this fills out the rest of the brownie bites.
  • Sprinkles or Nuts – to garnish the top!
