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!
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
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.
