There is something with me and Sunday afternoons that wants to bake brownies.  Sure, brownies are delicious in every day that ends in y, but for whatever reason, I seem to get an especially intense craving for chocolaty, delicious brownies mid-way through Sunday afternoon.  Yesterday, I decided to bake up a batch a bit different than the average chocolate treat – I went with these gorgeous Black Forest Brownie Bites!

Much like the classic cake, these mini-brownies are topped with a delicious whipped cream cheese frosting, chocolate shavings and topped with a maraschino cherry.  Hidden in the center of these fudgy treats is another cherry that keeps the brownie extra moist and delicious.  These brownies may be mini, but every morsel is packed with flavor!

These brownie bites are really easy to make!  They start off with a simple box brownie mix, and baked in a mini muffin tin, with liners that help keep everything (including clean-up!) easy.  I definitely recommend the mini-muffin liners, as it makes removing them from the pan much easier than messing with non-stick spray and hoping they come out in one piece.  They also look really pretty, too!

Ingredients

  • 1 box (15.25 oz.) brownie mix
  • 1/3 c. vegetable oil
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1 egg
  • 24 maraschino cherries, without stem
  • Frosting:
  • 1 (8 oz.) block, cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c. heaving whipping cream
  • 24 maraschino cherries, WITH stems
  • chocolate shavings

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a mini muffin pan with 24 mini muffin liners. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the brownie mix, oil, water and egg. Mix until the batter is fully incorporated. Using a scoop or small ladie, fill the mini muffin cups with the brownie batter, aproximately 3/4 full. When all cups are filled, add an un-stemmed cherry to the center of each brownie. Bake at 350 for 19-21 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before frosting.
  3. For frosting: In a hand or stand mixer, beat together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. With the mixer on a medium-high speed, slowly begin adding the whipping cream, and whip for about 2 minutes or when stiff peaks begin to form. Add the frosting to a piping bag, and decorate each brownie with a generous amount of frosting. Top with chocolate shavings and a stemmed maraschino cherry. Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container.

With the help of the mix, these brownie bites are quite easy to make.  They’re wonderful for bake sales, classroom treats, and even a fun way to celebrate a birthday or special occasion.  If you like these, then you’ll also love my Almond Coconut Brownie Bites or my German Chocolate Brownie Bites.

So the next time a chocolate craving hits, or in my case, Sunday afternoon, bake up a batch of these little chocolate treasures.  I hope these brownies bring as much fun and joy to your and your family as they have to mine!
