Brownie Bites with White Chococlate Frosting-and Decorative Chocolate Hearts

Share Button
Goodness, that is a very big title for such a small treat!
Don’t be fooled by the fancy name, because actually these little brownie bites are easy to make! I used a brownie mix that I happened to have in my pantry for the base. While they cooked I whipped up a FABULOUS white chocolate frosting recipe that I got from my sweet friend Starlie. Let me tell you–it is a great frosting–that I love!
I had planned on picking up some big beautiful raspberries that I had spotted at Costco and placing one on top of each brownie bite. Unfortunately when I was ready to make these, the raspberries were gone! I ended up using some dainty chocolate hearts and XOXOs for garnishes that I made out of melted chocolate. I finished them off with a dusting of sprinkles. I think they turned out very pretty, and they tasted GREAT!
A perfect little treat for your loves on Valentine’s Day!

Brownie Bites with White Chocolate Frosting and Decorative Chocolate Hearts
Submitted by Melanie ~ The Sisters CafeBrownie base:
1 boxed brownie mix or try our Perfect One Bowl Brownie recipe (cake like brownies work best)

Mix according to directions, but instead of using a 9×13 spoon batter into a lightly greased mini muffin pan. I used about a tablespoon of batter in each mini muffin cup. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Don’t overcook.

White Chocolate Frosting:
8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1 stick of butter, softened (8oz)
2 ounces of white chocolate, melted
1/2 tsp of almond or vanilla extract
3 cups powdered sugar

Mix butter and cream cheese together then add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Put frosting into a pastry bag and pipe on cooled brownie bites.

Chocolate Hearts:
Melt some semi sweet chocolate chips on the top of a double broiler or in a bowl in the microwave at 50% power. I usually do it in the microwave. Start out with 30 seconds and then stir, and then 15 second increments until they are melted.

Put the melted chocolate into a pastry bag with a very small tip (#2,3,4 would work) or you can use sandwich bag. Simple scoop the melted chocolate into the bag and cut a tiny bit of the corner off (really small).

Have a silpat (or waxed paper) lined cookie sheet ready. With your pastry or sandwich bag of melted chocolate, write XOXO or draw hearts onto the silpat lined sheet. When you have the amount desired put the whole tray into the freezer to set for 10 minutes or so. Once the chocolate is set, carefully lift them off and place on the top of the frosted brownie bite. ENJOY!

Happy Valentine’s Week!

    Steve-o, I'll answer for Melanie because I'm sure it would work fine in a regular sized muffin tin. Just increase the time a little bit, and watch carefully. You'll have to guess when they are completely cooked but not overcooked. Enjoy! :)
