Valentine’s Mini Brownie Bites
With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, here are some Valentine’s mini brownie bites that are sure to put a smile on your face. Definitely a chocolate lover’s dream all in a bite size, tasty treat.
And…. if you are a chocolate lover, these Valentine’s mini brownie bites are right up your alley. Chocolate is so delicious any way you eat it. One of my favorite ways is in a brownie, so soft, chewy and delicious! Imagine biting into one of these babies and getting all that chocolate frosting all over your front teeth. Yep, it happens every time.
You can make these brownie bites in a pan and cut them into 1 inch squares if you don’t have a mini muffin pan. Or you can cut them into bigger squares if you are wanting to skip the “bite size” and just go for a larger piece of chocolaty heaven.
Bite size anything is always a good thing. Less guilty, but not so much when you consume 5 or 6 at a time. One thing I like about the smaller size, I am always able to share lots more with my friends and family.
I brought these Valentine’s mini brownie bites to work last week and everyone loved them, along with my Valentine Sugar Cookies. So yummy! I’m sure you and your family will enjoy these tasty sweet treats too.
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
