Description

One of my favorite homemade brownie recipes dipped in chocolate and served as little bites!


Ingredients

Homemade Brownies

(or use your favorite box mix)

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces coarsely chopped bittersweet (or semi-sweet) chocolate (I used two 4 oz Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bars)
  • 1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For Dipping

  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate* (I used two 4 oz Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bars)
  • sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Spray 11×7 inch baking pan (or 9×9 pan) with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Melt butter and semi-sweet chocolate in a medium saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly untie smooth. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature (about 15 minutes).
  3. Stir sugar into cooled chocolate/butter mixture until combined. Add in the eggs one at a time, whisking until smooth after each addition. Whisk in the vanilla. Gently fold in the flour and salt. Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing the top with a knife. Bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out *almost* clean.
  4. Allow brownies to cool completely (I stuck mine the refrigerator for 1 hour) and cut into bite-sized squares using a cold knife for clean cuts. Allow to chill the brownie bites for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. The bites must be cold when you dip them.
  5. When the brownie bites are chilled, begin to dip them. In a medium size bowl, melt the chocolate chips or baking chocolate for about 30 seconds in microwave, stirring every 10 seconds. Microwave for longer until chocolate is completely smooth.
  6. Dip brownie tops into melted chocolate and decorate with sprinkles. Chill in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes until chocolate is hardened. Makes about 48 bites. I kept my brownie bites in the refrigerator. They are good up to one week stored covered.

Notes

  1. Chocolate: If using chocolate chips instead of pure chocolate, add 1 teaspoon shortening as you melt it to make the chocolate thin enough for dipping. Chocolate chips may not be used as the chocolate in the brownie recipe.
