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,

    These are so yum! Came together in no time at all. Made 23 mini brownie bites. I’m sure these would freeze great, but they won’t survive that long

  2. Leslie Scott

    What do you think about adding Andes chips to kind of Christmas these up a bit for a cookie exchange?

  3. Lucille

    The pan you suggested makes 24 servings the recipe you post make a serving for 12 so I guess I need to double the recipe?

    • Susan

      I saw 12 servings too and thought I needed to double the recipe to get 24 to fill my mini muffin pan….and now there are a lot of brownie bites and I’m 100% okay with that.

    • Wanda

      Baking them up as we speak. My husband loooves one bite brownies from Costco. Fingers crossed

    Delicious and very simple to make! A #40 (1 1/2 tbsp, or OXO’s medium sized) cookie scoop used all the batter for 24 perfect bites.

    Just made these for the first time and they are SO yummy. My kids are in quarantine heaven right now. Thanks for the chocolate fix!

  8. Becca Burdette

    I don’t have a mini muffin pan, how long should I bake if I make in regular muffin pan or regular rimmed baking sheet?

    • Gaby

      5-6 minutes longer for a regular muffin tin!!

  9. Wanda Oickke

    Absolutely delicious. Didn’t change a thing. It was hard to only eat one. Will definitely make again. Thank you for sharing your recipe

    • Corina

      Can i use a regular square pan instead of muffin/mini-muffin tin?

    • Gaby

      you absolutely can – just keep your eyes on the baking time as it will change.

  10. Wanda Oickle

    Absolutely delicious. Didn’t change a thing. It was hard to only eat one. Will definitely make again. Thank you for sharing your recipe

  11. Nancy

    The best!!!! Amazing texture and taste! Better than store bought !!! Thanks!

  12. Kelly Cuci

    I do Keto . Do you know how many calories for each bite? I’m wondering if I could substitute the sugar with sweve.

    • Gaby

      I don’t count calories so I can’t say how many are in this – sorry!! Never tried Sweve before but let me know if it works!

  13. Mindy

    I halved the recipe and mine came out so greasy. Maybe I used too much cooking spray?

    • Gaby

      that could be! if you want to email me a photo of what they look like, i can help troubleshoot

    • Poppy

      I’ve made these 4 different times without a problem, but today they came out greasy! The only difference was that I used land’o’lakes butter rather than Lucerne… wondering if maybe it has a higher fat content?

    These were really good. Dense, moist, chocolaty. I cut the sugar down to about 3/4 cup and they were perfect.

    Wow! Chewy, chocolate delicious bites of brownie. This is what dreams of chocolate are made of!

  16. Karen

    These look amazing! I love a fantastic brownie!! Should I omit the salt if I’m using salted butter? Living in Germany and know it might sound silly but I haven’t been able to find unsalted butter at our local grocery store. Didn’t know if I should omit the salt completely or how much to use if I should reduce it? Thanks so much!

    Turned out great! Baking for my mom and sister during this quarantine and they loved it!

    These are delicious! I had trouble with them sticking to my non-stick muffin tin. I used grapeseed oil spray so that must not be the best spray to use. Do you have a brand recommendation?

  19. Autumn

    OMG!!! These were awesome!!! Used salted butter and 1/2 the salt…turned out fine. Also cooked some in mini liners…they stick to the paper pretty good…LOL.. Also they do stick to the pans a little even with cooking spray.. So,I let them cool a bit in the pans..ran a butter knife around them then flipped them over onto a cooling rack…worked great! Gonna freeze them and send them to my son who is overseas in the USAF.. I am sure all guys will love them. THANKS for the great recipe!!!

    I made these for dessert tonight (made your cheese kale pasta for dinner!). They are so rich and good. We ate them with some vanilla ice cream and sprinkles and can’t wait to eat the leftover brownie bites this week.

    Great recipe and so easy! Cut sugar down to 1 cup and still too sweet for me though, so will go to 3/4 next time.

    Hi! So i tried this recipe and it tasted amazing, my daughter ate 5 at one sitting when I took it out of the oven. The problem I had was that it didn’t crinkle? It just looked smooth like a cupcake, what do you think I did wrong?

    These are amazing!! I’m in brownie heaven. These are on regular rotation in my house.

  26. simona karnani

    I am making them right now but they are bubbling and not baking. Do you know why? I need help, asap.

    • Gaby

      bubbling?! I’ve never seen that before. Did you make any substitutions?

    Hi do you know if I can make these in a small casserole dish? I don’t have a muffin tray at the moment.

    • Gaby

      you can bake the batter in a 9×9 pan for 20ish minutes and it will be great

  28. Poppy

    Made them three times in two weeks! A silicon pan makes it so easy. Also did Nutella stuffed instead of choc chips, delish! Going to try peanut butter next…. yum!

  29. Cindy Calkins

    Cool the butter a little before adding eggs or else they’ll scramble

    These were absolutely delicious! Perfectly moist and chocolately – a perfect bite! Mine took about 14 min for perfection! Thank you for sharing.

  31. Amanda

    These came out perfectly and were so delicious! Never buying the store bought ones again. Thanks for the recipe!

    I’ve made these multiple times during the pandemic & just brought them to a “socially distanced” rooftop catch up with a few friends. Bite sized and pre-portioned – they were a perfect and easy sweet treat for the five of us!

  33. Sarah Curley

    So much easier than other brownies where you have to use soooo many pots. Also the table salt works for the salt.

  34. Meg

    Would it be okay if i use a 3 oz muffin pan and just fill only half of it instead of filling it to almost to the top? If so, how many minutes should I bake them? Thank you so much!

    • Gaby

      haven’t tested it so keep your eyes on it when baking

    • Gaby

      I haven’t tested it but I know the recipe would work. Unsure if the top would be as crinkly but would be delish!

  35. Addison

    Oh. My. Goodness these are so good and super easy. Very dangerous lol! Thank you for posting this recipe
