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.
- 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)
- 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
- 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!
