recipe notes for perfect bites

  • first your favorite boxed brownie mix. My family loves, loves, loves the fudgy taste of the King Arthur brownie mix. No joke, I’ve never heard of anyone not loving this brownie brand. Now keep in mind they are a little more expensive than some gluten free brands. My trick– ordering them off Amazon in bulk (6 boxes). Each brownie box is much cheaper than purchasing in stores, and I always have some on hand for last minute company or events. [Edited to add– currently the price of this product on Amazon is astronomical. The price changed with social distancing. I will update this post when the price returns to normal.]
  • second the toppings— my favorite is So Delicious Coco Whip. Y’all hear me talk about this wonderful product all.the.time. on my social media accounts. Sorry, not sorry. I would eat it on everything if I could. You could also consider an easy and decadent chocolate ganache recipe found on my website here.
  • next top these brownie bites with your favorite fruits, sprinkles, or chopped nuts
  • I’ve found all muffin pans, ovens, and brownie mixes bake slightly different. The key is filling your muffin cavity only 1/4 of the way. This will give you a delicious brownie bite that isn’t hard and crispy at the top yet an under-baked bottom.
  • importantly– when you remove the brownie bites from the oven, they will continue baking in the muffin pan. You want this. Allow them to cool for 3-4 minutes in the muffin pan, then gently remove to a cooling rack. If needed use a sharp knife to loosen the brownie edges from the muffin cavity. If bites continue baking in the pan longer then 4 minutes, they’re likely to get quite hard.
  • lastly– another reason I love preparing these for gatherings is the brownie bites can be baked a day or two ahead of time and stored in an airtight container. Then top with your favorites just before serving.

Homemade Brownie Bites

Keyword: Dairy Free, Gluten Free
Servings: 16 brownie bites
Author: Eating Gluten and Dairy Free

Ingredients

  • 1 box gluten + dairy free brownie mix prepared see brand suggestion in post
  • 1 c dairy free whipped topping, divided So Delicious Coco Whip is awesome. Or homemade ganache is perfect too.
  • Strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Spray the inside of 16 large muffin cavities or use cupcake liners.
  • Prepare brownie batter according to the box directions.
  • Using a spoon or ice cream scoop fill each muffin cavity ¼ full. This is important; don’t over fill.
  • Then place in the oven for 23-25 minutes. I find different ovens and pans heat differently.
  • Remove from the oven and allow brownies to finish baking on a cooling rack 3-4 minutes.
  • After 3-4 minutes carefully remove brownies from the pan and place on a cooling rack. You may need to use a knife to gently release the brownies from the pan.
  • Once the brownies have cooled place a heaping tablespoon of So Delicious Coco Whip or other whipped topping in the middle of each bite. Then top with seasonal fruit.
  • Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. If needed brownie bites may be baked the day before and topped with whip and fruit just before serving.

Notes

Another topping idea is chocolate ganache. You’ll find a delicious recipe on my website. There is a direct link to the recipe in this post.
