Brownie bites are gratifying, dainty morsels of moist and dense chocolate in one drop. These petite treats are covered with a creamy ganache to make them even more tempting.

For the Brownie Bites
4.5 oz
4.5 oz
dark chocolate ( at least 50% cacao)
1/2 cup(s)
1/2 cup(s)

1/4 cup(s)

For the Chocolate Ganache
3.5 oz
heavy cream
3.5 oz
dark chocolate (at least 50% cacao)

Directions 11 steps | 27 Minutes

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a double boiler, melt the butter completely. Add the chocolate and stir until fully integrated. Remove from the heat.

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, cake flour, cocoa powder and a pinch of salt. 

Step 7729 Shot
Step 3

Add the slightly beaten eggs to the melted chocolate mix. Stir until combined.

Step 7730 Shot
Step 4

Pour the melted chocolate mixture into the flour mixture. Mix with a spatula to fully integrate into the batter.

Step 7731 Shot
Step 5

Line a twenty-four mini cupcake pan with one-ounce liners. Use a spoon to fill the cupcake liners. Each cup should be about eighty percent full.

Step 7732 Shot
Step 6

Bake for 12 minutes. Let them cool completely before covering them with the chocolate ganache.

Step 7733 Shot
Step 7

While the brownies bake and cool, prepare the chocolate ganache. Warm up the heavy cream just until simmering. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate to the hot cream.

Step 7734 Shot
Step 8

Stir constantly for about five minutes or until the chocolate is fully dissolved and the ganache is completely combined.

Step 7735 Shot
Step 9

Let the ganache cool completely and transfer into a piping bag with your favorite medium size nozzle. (See notes 1-3.)

Step 7736 Shot
Step 10

Once the brownies have cooled down and the ganache is thick enough for piping, pipe or spoon every brownie with ganache. Place the brownie bites in the fridge to get a truffle-like consistency or enjoy at room temperature for a fudgy texture. (See notes 4-5.)

Step 7737 Shot
Step 11

Serve and enjoy!

Step 7738 Shot


  1. You can skip the piping bag and just spoon the ganache on top of the brownie bites once the ganache has thickened enough to hold its shape.
  2. The ganache will thicken after being in the fridge for about 45 minutes. For best results, stir the ganache once or twice while it is cooling and check for the right consistency.
  3. The ganache will become more firm as it cools down, so pipe it while it is still soft.
  4. I love these mini brownies cold and topped with a raspberry or a cherry.
  5. You can further decorate them with cocoa powder, nuts, white chocolate beads or other sprinkles.
