Toffee Brownies Bites

These brownie bites are the second thing that I made off of my 30 by 30 list. I had never made a brownie from scratch before and I'm not exactly sure why. I've been making cookies from scratch since I was a little girl and cakes from scratch for the last year. So why was I still buying brownie mix in a box?! Could it be more difficult than a cupcake or a cookie?! Absolutely not, in fact it was easier than both! Give these a try they are fantastic with a glass of milk after dinner or just cause you want something sweet.

Adapted from

3oz Unsweetened Chocolate
5 1/3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs - Slightly Beaten
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Flour
15 Mini Heath Bars - Coarsely Chopped
Pam Spray

Begin by pre-heating the oven to 350F and spray your mini muffin tin with Pam Spray. In a medium sized pot over medium heat slowly melt down the chocolate and butter until they are smooth. Make sure you are mixing frequently so they do not burn.
Remove the pan from the heat and add all of the ingredients except the flour (sugar, vanilla, eggs and salt). Mix until well combined. Next stir in the flour.
Scoop the finished batter into the mini muffin tin, a heaping tablespoon should be enough to fill each cup.  Bake 12-15 minutes or until completely set. As the brownies cook, unwrap and chop up your heath bars. Once they come out of the oven let them cool in the tin for 2-3 minutes before gently pressing the pieces of heath bar into the top. Once the heath bar pieces are set into the tops of the brownies take them out to finish cooling on a wire rack.
Enjoy!! - Nicole
