Brownie bites by accident

I made this recipe off of Orangette for salted chocolate cookies, and then ended up changing the recipe for the ingredients I actually had on hand, and what I ended up making were brownie bites, rather than cookies. Which is just how things go in my kitchen, the eternal science lab. Sigh. But, they are actually pretty good!

Brownie bites

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 2 T. cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 stick unsalted butter, room temp.
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat about a cup of water in a small saucepan to simmering and put a metal bowl on top of that. Put your chocolate chips in the bowl, and let that melt, stirring occasionally. Once melted, set aside to cool.

In a small bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whip butter until creamy. Add sugar, and mix until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time. Add salt and vanilla.

Add cooled, melted chocolate and mix well. Add buttermilk. Add in flour mixture.

Grease a mini muffin pan. Drop batter by teaspoons into the muffin wells. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

This makes about 2 1/2 dozen brownie bites. These are not super sweet, so if you want to frost them, that would work well, I think.
