2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 tablespoon maraschino cherry juice from jar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons finely chopped maraschino cherries

Filling

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

3 (1-ounce) squares premium white baking bar, finely chopped

1 tablespoon finely chopped maraschino cherries

Topping

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 24 mini muffin pan cups; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter and sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and cherry juice; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed. Gently stir in 3 tablespoons chopped cherries.

  3. STEP 3

    Spoon about 1 tablespoon batter into each prepared muffin pan cup. Bake 12-14 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 2 minutes; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Place 1/4 cup whipping cream and chopped baking bar in bowl. Microwave30-60 seconds or until bubbling around edges. Stir until smooth and completely melted. Refrigerate 45 minutes or until thickened. Beat at high speed until light and fluffy; stir in 1 tablespoon chopped cherries.

  5. STEP 5

    Place 1/4 cup whipping cream and chocolate chips in bowl. Microwave 30-60 seconds or until bubbling around edges. Stir until smooth and completely melted. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until thickened.

  6. STEP 6

    Split brownies crosswise. Spread a heaping teaspoonful filling onto each cut-side of brownie bottom half; place cut-side of each brownie top half over filling.

  7. STEP 7

    Stir topping mixture until just slightly thickened and glossy. Spoon about 1 teaspoon topping over each brownie bite, allowing it to drip down sides. Garnish each with 1 cherry slice. Let stand until set. Store refrigerated in container with tight-fitting lid.

This is not worth the effort, just barely enough batter to make 24 brownies, which made the brownie bites smaller and then hard to slice in half. When you go to fill them the filling it runs over the edges and makes a mess, had to put it back in the fridge to harden after I whipped it. Good idea but definetly not worth all the steps and troubles!!
