Brownies are a family favorite—they are quick, easy and SO good. And what could make them even better? Whip out your muffin pan, or mini muffin pan and make your very own Brownie Bites!

Mini Brownie Bites are just as good as the pan version, but perfectly shareable. This is a great way to hand out brownies at a party or picnic.

These chocolatey bites are studded with chocolate chips for even more chocolate love! These are a family favorite treat that everyone will enjoy.

How to make chewy brownie bites

PREP. Preheat oven to 350. Grease mini muffin tin with cooking spray pretty well.

WET INGREDIENTS. In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, oil and sugars and whisk well. Add eggs and vanilla and mix another 2 minutes.

DRY INGREDIENTS. In another bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder. Fold dry ingredients in with wet ingredients, stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

BAKE. Pour batter into greased muffin tin and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

COOL + ENJOY! Let sit in pan for an additional 10-15 minutes then remove from pan and let cool.

Variations

There are many creative ways to add a little something extra to dress up brownie bites. Here are some fun ideas of things you can add:

  • Chips: white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, caramel chips
  • Candy: crushed candy bars, mini M&Ms
  • Chopped nuts
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Or, top with a Hershey’s Kiss, Rolo, or Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

Recipe Tips

Getting Them Out Of The Pan

  • We recommend making sure your pan has cooled down before attempting to remove your brownie bites.
  • Either chill your bites in the fridge for a little while to help speed this up or place the pan on top of a damp, cool towel until they are ready.
  • Then simply flip your pan over to remove the brownie bites.
  • If any are sticking in the pan you can use a sharp knife to run along any edges that may need help breaking loose. 

How To Tell When Your Brownie Bites Are Done

  • As ovens can vary in cooking times you will want to check on the doneness of your brownie bites at the beginning of the recommended cooking time.
  • Insert a toothpick into the brownie bite and if it comes out clean or with just a few crumbs on it you are good to go.
  • If it comes out looking wet, first try another spot in case you have inserted it into a chocolate chip, but if it is still looking pretty wet check on your brownie bites again in a few minutes.

Storing info

STORE. However you decide to store your leftover brownie bites it is important that you wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and then place them in an airtight container.

They can be stored on your countertop at room temperature for 3-4 days. Adding a slice of bread to the top of the container can help to keep them soft and fresh. Store brownie bites in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

FREEZE. Keep in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost at room temperature or microwave for a few seconds before enjoying again.

    Great recipe. I have a set of silicone mini muffin liners that are perfect to use when making mini brownies. The brownies don’t stick in the pan at all and the liners are reusable.

    I use these brownie bites when I make brownie sundaes. They are the perfect size and everyone gets both an edge piece and a soft center piece. Sometimes I’ll even make mini brownie sundaes using just one brownie and a little scoop of ice cream and they turn out really cute!

    These are yummy! I love to make mini brownies-lots of crispy bits. They are super easy too! Perfect for parties, and for sharing. I love that I don’t need plates to eat them either…napkins work just fine!

  4. 5 stars
    The edge of the brownies is my favorite & with these yummy bites every piece has an edge & is soft & chewy in the middle. Brownie Bites for the win!

    So much better than store-bought brownie bites! Our family loves these. Sometimes we even make a few batches and freeze them to enjoy at a later time.

    Bite-sized brownies are my favorite, but also dangerous! I could eat way more than I should!! These are soft & chocolate-y!

    I stopped buying little debbie snacks for my kid’s lunches and make mini brownies and cookies instead. My kids LOVE them.
