Fat Witch Brownie Bites

I ran 4 miles.

 

I really want to eat brownies.

 

Because I ran four miles my brain is now telling me I need to eat brownies.  The brain is a funny thing!  Brownies are good recovery food, right?

 

Of course not, but there goes my brain again, justifying it.

 

I’ve learned when my brain thinks I need to eat a brownie, just eat one and move on!

 

So in an effort to keep my brain happy and my jeans loose, I made a half recipe of brownies and made them into brownie bites.

 

This is the Cocoa Brownie recipe from the Fat Witch Brownies Cookbook by Patricia Helding.  They are super easy, everything is whisked together in a saucepan.

 

These brownies are chocolatey, chewy inside, with that slight crunch to the outside.

 

My brain is very happy!

 

 

Fat Witch Brownie Bites

 

makes 20 brownie bites

 

6 T. unsalted butter

1/4 c. Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder

3/4 c. granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 t. vanilla extract

6 T. all-purpose flour

1/4 t. salt

 

Sift the flour and salt together and set aside.  Melt the butter in a small saucepan on medium heat just until melted.  Remove from heat and whisk in the cocoa and sugar and eggs.  The mixture will become shiny.

 

  

Whisk in the vanilla and then the flour/salt mixture. Butter 20 spaces in a 24 place mini muffin pan.  Fill each place 3/4 full with the brownie batter and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
