double chocolate brownie bites

Yummy note: The other night I was really hungry for some brownies, but we had no box mix in the cabinet, so I went searching in my cookbooks and came across this. I think it came out of an older Pillsbury or Betty Crocker cookbook. The beauty of this recipe is that I didn't have to wait for a whole pan of brownies to be finished. Instead in just a few minutes, I had warm yummy chocolate bites that reminded me of brownies.

Double Chocolate Brownie Bites


1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine brown sugar and butter and beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg.

Next, mix in flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Stir in chocolate chips until blended well.

Scoop dough out by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 8 minutes in preheated 375 degree oven. Try not to overbake the cookies or else they will turn out very hard. For one of my batches of cookies I took them out even earlier than the 8 minute suggested time and got almost a more gooey-like fudgy brownie inside.
