This time of year I do a lot more baking than any other time. There is no need to re-invent the wheel with treats that I bake for either a neighbor treat or pot luck party. Honeyville Fudge Brownies have always been a favorite of mine. I dressed them up a little by baking them in a mini muffin tin and dusting the tops with some powdered sugar. By making them in a smaller size each and every bite has an "edge" piece, they are easier and prettier to serve, the powdered sugar dust looks like snow, and mini food is just cute!
1 (19.8 oz) Honeyville Fudge Brownie Mix
4 Tbsp. Honeyville Powdered Whole Egg
3/4 cup Water
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
Powder Sugar for dusting
In a bowl combine all ingredients. Mix by hand until well combined. Scoop about 1 Tbsp. of batter into each slot of a greased mini muffin pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. The brownie bites are done when a toothpick is inserted in the middle of the brownie and comes out clean. Let the brownies cool. Using a sifter with powdered sugar gently tap the sides to dust the brownies.
I loved that these are so simple and yummy. As I am looking back at the picture I realized that some crushed up candy canes sprinkled on top would be delightful too! The easiest way to remove the brownie bites for me was to let them cool to a point where I could hold the pan with my bare hands. With the pan on it's side I gently nudged the side of each bite with a toothpick to loosen. The bite would easily come out and I then set them on a wire rack to cool completely.
