Why Make Brownie Bites

Most home bakers run into one main issue with homemade brownies: cutting them!

How many times have you baked a perfect tray of brownies only to have them crumble and tear when sliced? Or to realize you weren’t careful with your slices and now your brownies are all different sizes?

There’s one surefire way to avoid slicing mishaps: make brownie bites instead!

  • Brownie bites bake as individual servings. No knife needed!
  • Easy to transport and serve. A great option for parties and potlucks.
  • All the delicious taste of homemade brownies in bite-sized form.
  • Smaller brownies means you get to eat MORE of them!

Today’s brownie bites are topped with a decadent mint chocolate buttercream. A delicious bite-sized chocolate dessert for any mint lover.

Ingredient Notes

  • Bittersweet chocolate chips – The 60% cocoa chocolate is best for rich, chocolatey brownies!
  • Unsalted butter – If you only have salted butter, leave out the added kosher salt in the recipe.
  • Green food coloring – We use the food gel to give the frosting a mint green color.
  • Andes baking chips – These are like itty bitty versions of the classic chocolate mint candies. Perfect for folding into this mint chip frosting!
  • Mini chocolate chips – Because more chocolate is always a good idea.

How to Make Brownie Bites

Brownie bites are as easy to make as regular brownies. Mix together your brownie ingredients to form a batter. Instead of a regular square baking pan, you will bake the brownies into bite sized portions.

I use this silicone baking mold to bake my brownie bites. It creates perfect two-bite brownies! If you don’t have a special brownie bites pan, you can use a regular mini muffin pan instead.

Whether you use a mold or a mini muffin tin, make sure to spray it with baking spray first. Baking spray prevents sticking and makes it easy to slide your baked brownies out of the pan to cool.

Mint Chip Frosting

Whip up a homemade buttercream while your brownie bites cool.

Add one drop of green food gel to the frosting and blend. If you want a darker green color add another drop of food coloring until you get the shade you like.

Fold a few Andes mint chips into the frosting. Melt the rest of the mint chips in a separate bowl.

Dollop or pipe mint frosting onto the baked, cooled brownie bites. Drizzle with the melted mint chips. Sprinkle the brownie bites with a few mini chocolate chips for a perfect finishing touch!

Recipe FAQs

What can I use instead of food coloring?

The food coloring gives the frosting its green color. There’s no substitute for it, unfortunately.
The good news is that the color does not impact the taste of the brownie bites at all. Feel free to leave it out if you prefer not to use it!

Can I make this recipe as regular brownies instead?

Yes, you can bake them in a square 8 x 8 baking dish for brownie bars. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

How do I store these mint chip brownie bites?

Store these brownie bites at room temperature in an airtight container. They are best enjoyed within 3 to 5 days of baking.

You can also freeze brownie bites, with or without the frosting! Transfer cooled brownie bites to freezer bags. Store in a single layer in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before enjoying.

Comments & Reviews

  1. These are absolutely delicious. Fortunately, I only had one silicone pan so I had to prepare in two batches. I say fortunately because I had to dig the brownies out with a spoon!

    The next batch, I used spray. They popped right out! It’s my fault though, I had already read that you needed spray with these silicone molds so I should have just listened to my inner voice. I will definitely make again!
