Mini Brownie Bites

These mini brownie bites are easy, delicious and adorable! They’re versatile and can work for any theme, holiday, party, or event.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 box brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ c canola oil
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 stick salted butter softened
  • 3 c powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • ¾ c shredded coconut
  • food coloring gel

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Line the mini muffin pans (I use this Wilton pan) with paper cups. If you’re making them for a special occasion, be sure to use cute mini cupcake liners.
  • In a large bowl, combine the brownie mix, eggs, oil, and water. Stir until well combined.
  • Pour the brownie batter into the baking cups about ¾ of the way.
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until done.

To Make the Frosting

  • In a stand mixer, whip the butter until it’s soft and fluffy (about 1 minute)
  • Set the mixer speed to slow and slowly mix in the powdered sugar.
  • Add vanilla and heavy cream.
  • Gradually increase speed to medium/high and let it mix for about 2 minutes.
  • Set aside ⅓ of the frosting and use the food coloring gel to tint the remaining frosting to your liking.

To Decorate the Brownies

  • Add the colored frosting to a piping bag with a star tip.
  • Add a teaspoon of white frosting to the brownie bite.
  • Dip into shredded coconut.
  • Pipe a tree shape with the green frosting to the center. Start by swirling a wider base then as you pull up, get smaller.
