Two Bite Brownies

Chocolate lovers little indulgence. So quick and easy, and the wonderful smell of chocolate baking will draw the family into the kitchen. Great alone or put one or two into a bowl with ice cream. 
(yields 48 Two Bite Brownies)
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, optional
***if you want a little espresso flavour remove 1 teaspoon of cocoa from the 1/2 cup and add 1 teaspoon of espresso powder to the mix***
  1. Melt butter.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk eggs and vanilla together.
  3. Stir in dry ingredients and then add the melted butter. Stir until all ingredients are mixed together well. 
  4. Divide batter between greased mini muffin tins. ( I just give the whole tin a quick spay with oil. The mini pans are so tiny and finicky to rub each one individually.)
  5. Bake in 350ºF oven for 8-10 minutes. They will puff up and be set but not completely firm. You don't want to over bake them. Check them earlier than later if your oven bakes on the hot side.
  6. Allow to sit in pans for about 30 seconds and then using a sharp paring knife gently lift brownies out of tin. These freeze well. 


  1. Don't know how it's possible to accurately measure butter in a cup ??

    1. In Canada we buy our butter in a one pound block that has the cup increments on it. If you cut it in half, it's one cup and so on. It does not need to be measured in an actual cup. In the US the package is divided and wrapped in individual 1/2 cup sticks.

  2. Doesn't it need any baking soda?
    Will try them forsure

    1. No, there is no baking soda or baking powder in this recipe.

  3. I made them and they tasted good but were smaller than yours and and I could not get 48

  4. Should you "pack" the brown sugar? thanks!

  5. hoping you can tell me why mine didn't firm up at all.......
    i followed the recipe exactly...

  6. Made these this morning and found them to be a bit 'sticky' or 'tacky' around the edges. They didn't lift out as easily as I thought they would so let them cool longer on a rack. They taste delicious! Great for taking out to group functions.
