Eat Skinny Be Skinny Dessert: Brownie Bites

Posted Jan 04 2011 8:06pm

Even though I’m ‘dieting’, I can’t give up chocolate. Well, I could, if I had to. But that’s not a position I plan to put myself in :) Chocolate, in moderation, is known to help reduce anxiety and stress,  and with how stressed I’m going to be these next three months, I’m going to need a constant dose of the sweet stuff. Along with having a desperate sweet tooth, I also am on the lookout for dessert recipes for the sweets table at our wedding. I’m going to be doing some of the baking so I will be busy taste testing recipes that are delicious, elegant, southern, bite-sized and visually appealing. Lucky for you, I will feature them all on here! This recipe only makes about 24, so if you are cooking for a large party you will want to double it. I ran out of chocolate, otherwise I would have dipped them for an extra fudgey bite. A dash of powdered sugar is just as nice, though!

What You’ll Need

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3  cup  unsalted butter
  • 2  large eggs
  • 1/2  cup  sugar
  • 1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1  cup  chopped walnuts

How to Make Them:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 by 8 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Mix butter and chocolate into a medium saucepan. Heat until mixture is melted.

  • While chocolate is melting, beat eggs with sugar in a large bowl until creamy.

  • Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Once that is mixed, stir in melted chocolate mixture.

  • Stir in walnuts.

  • Pour mix into the greased pan. Bake for 20 minutes.
