I’m so excited to be participating in the 25 Days of Christmas Blogshare!
I love anything that combines mint with chocolate so I decided these chocolate mint brownie bites would be the perfect treat to share with you all today.
Ingredients for Brownie Bites (makes 24 mini brownie bites):
- 1 ½ squares of semi-sweet chocolate
- 1 stick of butter
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup of sugar
- ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
- ½ cup sifted flour
- Pinch of salt
- 24 Hershey kisses (unwrapped)
Grease mini muffin pan. Melt chocolate and margarine together. Mix together and let cool. Beat eggs until frothy. Stir in sugar, chocolate mixture and peppermint extract. Add flour and salt. Spoon brownie batter into each mini muffin cup – enough to fill ¾ full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes
While the brownies are baking, it is time to make the frosting. This is my favorite part!!
Ingredients for frosting:
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 3 cups of confectioner’s sugar
- 2 tbsp milk
- 1 ½ teaspoons peppermint extract
- 3 drops of green food coloring.
Directions: Mix all ingredients until blended.
Once the brownies come out of the oven, place a Hershey kiss upside down in the center of each brownie. Let cool for 2 minutes. Then remove from pan. Let cool completely.
Add icing and sprinkles to each brownie bite.
