Patriotic Brownie Bites

Tuesday, July 3, 2012

Are you looking for a super simple dessert recipe to take to your 4th of July party?  These brownie bites are the perfect treat.  I used a box of pre-made brownie bites from Sam's and made some buttercream frosting to go on top.  If you want to make these even easier, use a can of pre-made frosting.  If you use the pre-made frosting, whip it with a hand-held mixer first.  That will make the frosting fluffier and taste more like homemade.  I topped the brownies with some red, white and blue sprinkles that I found at Hobby Lobby.  Very festive and delicious!

Patriotic Brownie Bites
(Printable Recipe)

32 mini brownie bites
1 stick butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter until smooth and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. With mixer on low speed, add 3 cups sugar, whipping cream, and vanilla; mix until light and fluffy. If necessary, gradually add more powdered sugar to reach desired consistency.

Pipe buttercream on top of each mini brownie.  Top with sprinkles.  Enjoy!

  3. Oops, I think you meant "add 3 cups of sugar" instead of 6 cups of sugar. Did the brownie bites pass the kitty inspection? :)

    Jack was not interested in the brownie bites. He prefers pigs in a blanket or egg white omelets!
