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

    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.

      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

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

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