Nutella Brownie Bites – before being frosted

One of my blog readers, Anne (Uni Homemaker), has a wonderful blog of her own that I enjoy reading.  You might too! Yesterday was our monthly Open House at Spa 33 in El Cajon, CA and I wanted to make a snack for my table that  would feature one of the doTERRA Essential Oils.  Of course, true to form, this idea hit me a mere 3 hours before I had to be there to set up my table, so I had to find something that had a quick preparation!  When I cook with my oils I like to preserve the healing properties, so I don’t take them to their “smoke point”.  This Brownie Bite recipe at Anne’s site sounded so very delicious and I thought that using a flavored frosting would be the perfect compliment to it.  Others must have thought so too, because they disappeared quickly off my table!

Ingredients:  This recipe made 30 mini-brownie bites for me.

Brownie Bites:

  • 1 cup of Nutella
  • 2 eggs
  • 10 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (since I made mini-muffins, I used the mini-chips)

Frosting:

  •         1 12 oz containter Betty Crocker Cream Cheese Frosting (yep, I cheated – I was out of time!  You can make yours from scratch, if you prefer)
  •         3 drops doTERRA Wild Orange Essential Oil

Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking cups in the muffin pan.
  • Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) mix together Nutella, eggs, flour and salt until combined.
  • Spoon batter into the lined baking cups (about 1/2 full as they will expand while cooking). Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and bake for 12 minutes (same cook time – regular size or mini size). Let the brownie cups cool for 5-7 minutes in the muffin pan before transferring them to the cooling rack.
  • Combine Cream Cheese Frosting and Wild Orange Essential Oil.  Mix well.
  • Use a frosting bag or a zip-lock baggie with a corner snipped out.  Fill bag with Frosting.  Squeeze frosting onto each brownie bite.

Eat and Enjoy! I’d love to hear of your experiences with this recipe!
