So these happened. I've been trying to stick to healthy snacks lately. And not bake with excessive amounts of sugar and chocolate. You know, because I have little to no self control when chocolatey treats are in the vicinity. Especially when it's a cookie or a brownie. Please tell me I'm not alone in this?
These little brownie bites are chewy and chocolatey and fudgy and just the perfect amount of sweet to kill that chocolate craving. I actually sent most of these off with my daughter to an end of the year school party, which is likely a good thing or I would have eaten far, far too many of them.
Because...no self control.
Something about brownies, and mini ones at that, they're just impossible to ignore. Even if you hide them in the freezer, you still know they're there. Calling your name. Again, please tell me I'm not alone here!
Sending them away worked out well though. I sent almost the entire batch and only a couple came home - my daughter informed me that they were SO GOOD, and everyone loved them. And if a class of grade three kids tells you these brownie bites are "so good", it's pretty much a fact right? Okay, not really. If it's a treat it'll pretty much get eaten. It really meant nothing that they were almost all gone.
But I can tell you that there were only 8-10 of these left for my husband and I to test out and determine if they were good, and they didn't last too long. I probably can't even blame him. He's not the chocoholic around here. So I'll just say that they were impossible to ignore.
But that's okay, they're mini. It's all good.
