I was checking out my favorite links at some linky parties last week, and ran across Peanut Butter Brownie Bites from Me and My Pink Mixer. I had to try this idea out.
She recommends using your favorite brownie mix, but I have to make brownies from scratch using Hershey's Best Brownie recipe. I went to their site, and they don't have the exact same recipe anymore, so here it is for posterity's sake:
1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
2 teas. vanilla extract
4 (yes) 4 eggs
3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder (my fave is Saco)
1 c. flour
1/2 teas. baking powder
1/4 teas. salt
Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. Stir in sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Beat well with a spoon/whisk.
Thank goodness we get eggs from my in-laws' chickens! One of the perks of country living.
Now, add cocoa, stirring carefully with a spoon. Last, stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Normally you pour this goodness in a 9x13 pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. However, this time around, you'll put a heaping teaspoon of batter into each cup in a mini muffin pan.
Yummy chocolatey bitty brownies to assuage any stress or angst.
By the way, this version makes approximately 60 bitty brownies. I'd know for sure, but the hubs had a few "tastes" of the batter. :)
I'm almost finished with the first tunic, and will show later this week.
