My love for a good brownie runs deep. It’s one of my favorite sweets to make… right up there with cookies! These crinkle top brownie bites are exactly that. Little mini morsels of delicious chocolate brownie with a few chocolate chips sprinkled in for good measure.

They are super easy to make, and just require 1 pot!! And they bake in about 15 minutes which means you can have these prepped and ready to eat within 20 minutes flat!

  • Can you freeze Crinkle Top Brownie Bites?
    • You sure can! Once these are baked, removed from the pan and cooled, you can pop them into a zip top bag or tupperware and place them in the freezer. They’ll last for weeks if you’re able to not eat them all!
  • How do you get brownies out of mini muffin pans?
    • Good question – that’s a key part to making these brownie bites. You’ll want to 1: use a muffin pan that’s non stick (linked below) and spray it with non stick baking spray to be extra sure that these are easy to remove!
  • Can you stuff Crinkle Top Brownie Bites?
    • You sure can! The recipe below is stuffed with chocolate chips but you can also stuff these with any other kind of chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, butterscotch etc. Just use smaller pieces of chocolate or candy and press them down into the muffin pan once you’ve filled the cavities with the brownie batter,

    Delicious! Thank you! I threw the brownie bites from the store into the trash (seriously) and filled up their empty container with the brownies from your recipe (also seriously haha). I left out the chocolate chips because I was planning on using a squeeze bottle, but the batter ended up too think for it, and I forgot to add the chips back in, haha. But they were still the best brownie bites I’ve ever had! Thanks for sharing

      I havent tried that but I think that would be no issue!! LMK! xx

    Do you use a scoop to evenly fill the mini muffin cups, If so, what size scoop? I’ve made this before and loved them. Although I had a little problem with them sticking to the pan or feeling a little greasy when removed from the pan. So yesterday I tried using liners but found they stuck inside the liner. The next batch will be with no liner. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    • Gaby

      I used a gold touch sheet pan from williams sonoma that literally has the best no-stick coating. and I use a 2-3 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop into the muffin tins

    • Gaby

      you sure can – baking time would be about 25 minutes for a 9×9 pan

  3. Pam Bradley

    I only have special dark cocoa powder. Would you change the recipe if using special dark cocoa ?

    Love the one pot cleanup! They looked a little greasy coming out but once cooled were delicious!

    Ok , I’m sitting here this morning going over emails, came across this recipe, can’t wait to make. Will let you know. I’ve never met a brownie I didn’t like. Always looking for the “best” recipe,

    Fabulous! It’s much easier to get them out of the pan after they cool.
    Every bite is like eating a ‘corner’! YUM

  7. Faith

    My baking pan is silicon and has room for 24 brownie bites. Is doubling the recipe realistic?

  8. Jen Foster

    These brownies were amazing! Biggest problem is…I always have these ingredients on hand! Ugh. Nothing to stop me from making them.

  9. p

    ok first time baking.. i dont have parchment paper and cooking spray… so how do i grease my pan.
    any tips for a first time baker .. im pretty clueless HAHHAAH

    • Gaby

      you could butter the baking tin really well so that nothing sticks! but baking spray is more dependable

  10. Maria

    Can I lower the amount of sugar, by even a 1/4 cup, and it’ll still be sweet?

    • Gaby

      I haven’t tested it with a reduced amount of sugar so I can’t say exactly how that would affect the science behind the recipe

    • p

      i lowered it by that amount and it was okay for me .. i think the sweetness of the chocolate chips were enough for me

  11. Sarah

    How many mini brownies does this make? I need to make about 100 for an event and I’m not sure how much I need to expand the recipe. Thank you!

    • Gaby

      haven’t tested it in a regular size!! I would just keep my eyes on it and do the knife test to ensure you don’t overbake

  12. p

    hii just a doubt.. so when i removed the pan from heat do i immediately add the next ingredients immediately or let this cool first? becos i heard that if not the egge becomes kind of scrambled eggs idk HAHAH ..

    does it make a difference if i just add cooled melted butter to all the other ingredients instead

    They were perfect. My first time making them. Great n simple recipe. Thanks.

    My first time making brownies! These were great! Slightly crisp edges and very rich and chewy. BUT, doubling the recipe ended up making 48, not 24 like i thought. I filled the mini tin almost to the top, and they took 14 mins. Used 1/2 black cocoa from Bulk Barn and 1/2 Hersheys cocoa powders. I am a Baker, and I WILL make these again!

  15. Kristina

    Love this recipe! I think I would prefer it as bites (like the recipe says) but I didn’t have the pan so I used my 9×9 and it still worked great, just cooked it 25 min like Gaby said.

  16. Anne Borgatti

    Made these in the silicone sphere molds I finally got today. Instead of chocolate chips I used mini M&Ms. They took a little longer to cook. (19 min) and I let them cool in the molds but they are so good.

  17. Laura P.

    How would cooking time and amount per cup change if I only have a regular cupcake tin versus one for minis?

    Can’t wait to make these!

    • Gaby

      they’ll bake a bit longer – you’ll need to keep your eyes on them. I didn’t test them that way so I’m not 100% sure off the top of my head

  18. Emily

    Hi, I found this recipe and was interested to try it out though I have a question about adding the sugar, salt and cocoa powder into the melted butter. Do you add the ingredients in the butter while it is on the stove?

    Best bites ever!! Wonderful, quick, and simple. Also, I am non-dairy so used thick coconut milk instead. IT WAS FANTASTIC! You can’t taste the coconut at all. Just gooey chocolate. Yum.

    These were easy and delicious! I made them exactly by the instructions and they are rich and dense; waay better than the store bought brownie bites! The recipe makes 48:)

    These were excellent I will definately be making them again . I glazed them by microwaving some chocolate buttercream I had in my freezer and pouring it oven . Delicious and they disappeared really fast .

    Loved this recipe! It was really simple & I liked the one pot method for mixing the ingredients. I did have a like trouble getting some of them out. I’ll have to try some different things on that. The taste was delicious!

    • Gaby

      whatever you prefer – I like semi-sweet or dark chocolate! but milk and white chocolate are delish too

    Theses are delicious chocolately bites. Just the right size to pop in your mouth. You can change up flavors too. Today I am going to add espresso powder to the batter. You cannot beat these for any occasion.

    It seemed like mine took way longer than 15 min to bake. I followed the recipe to the T. Is this normal??
    I used a mini cupcake tin and cookie scoop .

    Your brownie bites are irresistible! I’m making my third batch today. They are so bite sized and full of rich chocolate flavor. I cannot live without them. Last time I made them I added 1 tablespoon of espresso powder to the batter and wow! I love this recipe!

  26. Amy

    Oh my! I made these for portion control, but I am not so sure. They are yummy. Hopefully I can keep them in the freezer and get them out one serving at a time.

    Was craving two bite brownies, made these, and OMG do they hit the spot. Easy to make, taste and smell divine. I ran one of white sugar so I used brown. So good. Thank you for the recipe!

  28. Sarah Nordstrom

    These turned out perfect! I used a small spoon to fill up a mini muffin tray and they were sooo good. I love that it’s simple and you don’t need a mixer or softened butter. Will make again and again!

  29. MARTA

    In section 2 when you say “mix till smooth”, are you saying not grainy or just until mixed? I’m going with just till mixed. I hope that’s it

    I made this last week and they were so good! It ended up making 36 mini brownies in about 14 minutes at a time. I also should’ve used more cooking spray because they stuck to the pan. Overall, great recipe and yummy brownies!

    The brownies were super easy to make, even for me who usually messes up on things like this! I ended up burning it just a little bit, but it still turned out SUPER delicious. Crunchy on the outside, but really soft on the inside 😀 Thanks for posting this recipe!

  32. Terry S

    When this recipe is doubled could you bake in a 13 x9 pan? If so what would the baking time be?

    3/4 sugar makes the perfect batch of brownies for our family since we do not like overly sweet….such an easy and delicious recipe that makes the cutest confections!
