Peppermint Mocha Brownie Bites


  • Author: URBAN BAKES
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 dozen 1x

Description

Peppermint Mocha Brownie Bites are fast and easy to make with no added frosting, cream cheese, or melted candy!  A great alternative to cake pops and the classic chocolate truffle. 


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons espresso
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup peppermint candy, crushed

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with aluminum foil leaving extra foil hang over two opposite sides for easy removal. Grease and flour bottom and sides of the foil; set aside.
  2. In medium bowl, melt butter in microwave on HIGH for 30 second; stir. Reheat for another 15 seconds if necessary until fully melted.
  3. Whisk in sugar, cocoa and espresso. Beat in eggs and vanilla, about 1 minute.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, fold in flour until flour until completely blended in cocoa. Spread batter evenly into lined pan.
  5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. Allow brownies to cool to room temperature. Trim edges and flaky top crust for a smoother brownie bite, if desired.
  7. Break the soft brownie into small parts and roll into 1-inch balls. Dip each ball into crushed peppermint to coat and place into a small candy or cupcake liner to serve. ENJOY!

Notes

Keep in mind, the fudgier the brownie, the “stickier” it will be to allow the crushed candy to adhere.
