My Brownie bites have been a big hit lately and are my most asked for items! As I mentioned in my previous post, I was asked to come up with a caramel or peanut butter brownie bite. The caramel ones are awesome and can be found here. Of course the peanut butter ones are even better in my opinion! How can you go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter?!
Peanut Butter Brownie Bites:
1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
4 1/2 teaspoons butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Chocolate candy coating
1-1 1/2 tablespoon shortening
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Make brownies according to box. Fill mini muffin pans with brownie mixture. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Cool on wire rack once done.
While your brownies are baking, combine the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl, and beat on a medium speed until all is combined and smooth.
Once your brownies have cooled, make a hole in the center of each one. Fill with peanut butter mixture. Place in the freezer for about 10 min to chill.
Place your chocolate ( about 3-4 squares) and shortening in a microwave safe bowl, melt using 30 second intervals. Dip the top of each brownie bite in the chocolate and place on wire rack or cookie sheet to set. Once chocolate is set, If you would like, top each brownie bite with a peanut butter icing (recipe below).
Peanut Butter Icing:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons milk, or as needed
2 cups powdered sugar
Mix peanut butter and butter in medium sized bowl, until combined. Gradually add the powdered sugar and milk until you have reached your desired consistency. Place in a zip lock baggie. Cut the tip of one corner in the baggie and squeeze zig zags (or however you want to..) of icing on the brownie bites.
Eat and Enjoy!
