How to Make Ornament Brownie Bites

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large microwaveable bowl, melt the butter and chocolate chips until completely melted, about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring until well combined. Stir in the vanilla and then the flour until well mixed. Pour evenly into prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, but the brownies are still fudgy. Do not over bake. Let brownies cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Once brownies are cooled, use a spoon to dig up the middle of the brownies, leaving the edges to snack on later!

    1. Hi, Lisa! They should keep great in the fridge for four days if you just gently cover (or place in a tall Tupperware with a lid). Enjoy!
