Eat Skinny Be Skinny Dessert: Brownie Bites

Pin It PIN IT!

Even though I’m ‘dieting’, I can’t give up chocolate. Well, I could, if I had to. But that’s not a position I plan to put myself in 🙂 Chocolate, in moderation, is known to help reduce anxiety and stress,  and with how stressed I’m going to be these next three months, I’m going to need a constant dose of the sweet stuff. Along with having a desperate sweet tooth, I also am on the lookout for dessert recipes for the sweets table at our wedding. I’m going to be doing some of the baking so I will be busy taste testing recipes that are delicious, elegant, southern, bite-sized and visually appealing. Lucky for you, I will feature them all on here! This recipe only makes about 24, so if you are cooking for a large party you will want to double it. I ran out of chocolate, otherwise I would have dipped them for an extra fudgey bite. A dash of powdered sugar is just as nice, though!

Bite Sized Brownies

What You’ll Need

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3  cup  unsalted butter
  • 2  large eggs
  • 1/2  cup  sugar
  • 1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1  cup  chopped walnuts

How to Make Them:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 by 8 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Mix butter and chocolate into a medium saucepan. Heat until mixture is melted.

  • While chocolate is melting, beat eggs with sugar in a large bowl until creamy.

  • Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Once that is mixed, stir in melted chocolate mixture.

  • Stir in walnuts.

  • Pour mix into the greased pan. Bake for 20 minutes.

    Oh these sound fantastic! Are they bite-sized? If they are, then I'm in a lot of trouble...I would never stop eating. I pray that I don't ever have to give up chocolate! :)

    Delicious! Moderation is definitely the way to go...though sometimes that is easier said than done with something so yummy. ;)

    Mmm, brownies. If you cut them smaller, that means you can eat more of them, right?

    Just tried mixing this receipe with my traditionnal brownie receipe : the one from the free Gold Medal All Purpose Flour book, that I've been using for about ten years. This version uses slightly less butter (1/4 cups or 50g) and I think slightly more chocolate (150g) but otherwise is terribly similar, made me wonder if it was a source of inspiration ?
    Also I replaced the walnuts with probably a little more than tablespoon of paprika - see if I can make heathly 'Mayan' brownies. They're in the oven, we'll see what happens !
    I was touched by period of almost anorexia and I'd like to thank you for your wonderful receipes and your way of eating - ie always wit pleasure ! Keep me drooling please !
