Chewy Chocolate Brownie Bites

recipe adapted from King Arthur Flour

makes 36 small brownies

prep time: 20 minutes

cooking time: 40 - 45 minutes

4 large eggs

1 1/4 cups Dutch cocoa powder, sifted

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 cup unsalted butter, melted

2 1/4 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour



vanilla ice cream

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and vanilla with a wire whisk until smooth and fluffy.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the sugar and continue stirring until the mixture reaches a temperature of 110 - 120ºF.

Add the butter/sugar mixture to the chocolate and combine with a whisk until silky smooth.

Fold in the flour and combine.

Line a 9 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Scoop the brownie batter into the pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Place the pan into the oven and bake for 40 - 45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. You want a nice shine on the top and a soft chewy interior.

Remove from the oven and let cool. Slice into 36 squares. Serve with chopped hazelnuts and vanilla ice cream.
