Easy and rich brownie bites

Today I decided to continue on my quest for the perfect brownie. I pulled this recipe off of I chose it because it claims to be the easiest brownie recipe ever and it contains a FULL cup of butter and cocoa. (Most other recipes I have come across contain about half of the amount of butter and cocoa) I thought this had to be a good recipe and could not wait to try the finished product! So far, I must agree with the "easy" part of the claim. I used my Kitchenaid mixer and it all went together very quickly and easily in the mixer. I also like only using one bowel, a quick cleanup makes for a happy cook in the kitchen! Here is the recipe:


1 cup butter (softened)

2 cups brown sugar

2 eggs (one at a time)

2 tsp Vanilla

1 cup flour

1 cup cocoa

pinch of salt

1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Blend the softened butter and the brown sugar until smooth. Then add the eggs, one at a time. I personally think they blend in better when they are at room temperature so I always try to have them sitting out for a little while before mixing them into anything. Then add the two teaspoons of Vanilla. Slowly blend in the flour until moistened and add the cocoa. Throw in a pinch of salt and chocolate chips if you like. I baked them at 350 degrees in a 9 x 9 glass pan for 25 minutes. The original recipe called for a 9" x 11" pan and 20 minutes in the oven. I don't have a pan that size, so I adjusted my cooking time. I am going to serve these brownie bites with the easiest chocolate frosting ever as a fondue dip:

Frosting Recipe

1/4 cup Crisco, melted

1/2 cup cocoa

1/4 tsp of salt

1 1/2 tsp of Vanilla

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/3 cup milk

In a saucepan, melt the Crisco. Then remove from heat and add the cocoa, salt and vanilla. Add the milk. Put all powdered sugar into a separate bowl. Pour the chocolate mixture into the powdered sugar and mix till smooth. I put the powdered sugar into my Kitchenaid blender, so again I only used one bowl. I mixed/whipped the frosting for about 5 minutes. This is some incredible chocolate frosting and really quite easy to make. These turned out to be very rich, chewy brownies, enjoy them, I know I sure did!
