Football Brownie Bites

21 Sep

When I saw these Football Brownie Bites over at What’s Gaby Cooking, I totally fell in love and knew I had to make them for one of our football gatherings. They turned out so cute and were a huge hit for the Husker game. Don’t you love my Husker platter? Go Big Red!

I used my favorite brownie recipe to make these little guys. It’s super rich and fudgy which is perfect for a bite size morsel. I topped them with canned cream cheese frosting but if you are an overachiever you could make your own. I just didn’t bother since such a small amount was needed. The recipe makes 24 mini brownies but if you are attending/hosting a big party I definitely recommend doubling the recipe since mine disappeared and there were only about 12 of us.

Football Brownie Bites
recipe adapted from from What’s Gaby Cooking
yield 24

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 can cream cheese frosting

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Grease a 24 cup mini muffin tin.
3. In a medium bowl combine melted butter and cocoa and stir until cocoa is dissolved.
4. Add sugar and mix well.
5. Add eggs one at a time and stir until well combined.
6. Stir in vanilla, flour and salt until you no longer see any flour (do not overmix).
7. Divide into muffin cups and bake for 10-15 minutes.
8. Pipe on football laces with a piping bag and tip or using a ziplock bag with the corner snipped off.

    Totally cute! Love that these don’t require a cookie cutter and lots of wasting! =o) Well, not that I would waste it, I’d eat it. But you know what I mean.
