Christmas is a week from now and wow, it sure sneaks up on you quickly. Is it me or do you notice how quickly 2013 is going by? When I had a full-time office job, the year never passed this quickly. Now that I’m a homemaker/blogger, the days go by in a blink of an eye. Anyway, I hope everyone has gotten their Christmas shopping done.
Dark chocolate peanut butter and holiday chip brownie bites. Whew, it’s a mouthful to say! These cute little brownie bites are so dense, chocolatey and delicious. Milk is a requirement when eating these little gems. When Chris and I sampled these, we couldn’t stop eating them. We had to restrain ourselves from eating the entire batch. Haha! If you love dark chocolate AND peanut butter, you’ll love these babies. Happy Wednesday!
- 2 cups of dark chocolate peanut butter (I used Peanut Butter & Co. brand)
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 3/4 cup of holiday chips + extra to sprinkle on top (I used Nestle Tollhouse brand)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or line baking cups in the muffin pan (I used 2 12-cup muffin pan and a 6-cup muffin pan).
Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) mix together peanut butter, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth. Then add flour and salt and mix until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Fold in holiday chips.
Using a 1-1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop, spoon batter into each baking cup (about 1/3 full). Sprinkle extra holiday chips on top. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the tester/toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool slightly in the pan before transferring them to the cooling rack.

These brownie bites do look amazing! I can’t help wondering, however, if any sort of sweetener was supposed to be included in the recipe and might have been inadvertently left out of the instructions? I made these for my family over our Christmas vacation and, while they were eagerly anticipated, they weren’t what we were expecting at all since the only pockets of sweet taste were due to the holiday chips! I found your recipe through Pinterest and followed it exactly – I even used the brand of peanut butter you suggested. I ended up making a peanut butter frosting with which to top these to sweeten them up and save them from being wasted after which they were received much better 🙂 If there was an ingredient that was missed then I’d love to know about it so I can try it again!
Hi Jaime: Nothing was left out of the recipe, I made it as it was written. In our family, we don’t eat our desserts too sweet so I didn’t feel the need to add additional sugar to this recipe since the dark chocolate peanut butter had plenty of it + the holiday chips. You can certainly add sugar to it if you prefer it on the sweeter side. I’m glad to hear the PB frosting worked out for you.
