Easy Brownie Bites with Reese’s Mini Candies

The original recipe for these delicious brownies came from my mother-in-law who used to make brownies in muffin tins for high school marching band events. When I joined the family, they quickly became a favorite family treat to whip up when we’re having guests over, or just when we want a quick treat.

While I was grocery shopping at the store several months ago, I saw a bag of Reese’s Minis candies and immediately knew they would be the perfect size for mini brownie bites (I find them in the candy aisle or at checkout by the candy bars).

This is a perfect treat to make if your kids want to “help”! It’s pretty fast to whip up, and doesn’t involve anything very advanced.

If you want to add a sophisticated (but super easy!) chocolate drizzle, I’ve outlined how I do that below:

Chocolate Drizzle

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 good-quality zipper baggy or microwavable bowl

Measure the chocolate chips into a good zipper baggy or into a microwavable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, then smoosh the bag with your fingers to “stir.” Continue to heat in 10 second increments, until the chocolate chips are melted. Seal the baggy and carefully snip off a corner (just a tiny bit, you can always make it bigger if needed).

Pinch the melted chocolate into the corner of the baggy and wrap your palm around it like a pastry bag. Gently squeeze the bag with your palm while moving in a smooth zig-zag motion over your brownies (practice on wax paper or a napkin if needed).

Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place paper liners in tin and lightly grease with cooking spray. Fill each liner about 3/4 full with prepared brownie mix.
  2. Bake for 17-19 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the brownies cool for 10-15 minutes. While the brownies are still warm, gently press one Reese's Mini into the center, narrow side down. Allow to cool for another 20-30 minutes.
Recipe Notes

You can make these in a standard muffin tin, just use regular Reece's Miniatures in the foil wrappers and bake for 20-25 minutes. One batch in a standard muffin tin makes 12 brownies.
