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
32 mini brownie bites
1 stick butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups powdered sugar
¼ 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!
