Brownie Bites Ferrero Rocher Tops

Yield: 48 brownie bites

Serving Size: 2 bites

Ingredients

  • 1 pound unsalted butter
  • 16 ounces ( 1 lb) plus 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 6 extra-large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 42 Ferrero Rocher chocolates for the tops
  • (adapted from an Ina Garten recipe)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Melt together the butter, 16 ounces (1 lb) of chocolate chips, and the unsweetened chocolate in a medium bowl over simmering water. Allow to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, stir (DO NOT beat) together the eggs, coffee granules, vanilla, and sugar.
  • Stir the warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and allow it to cool to room temperature.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together 1 cup of the flour, the baking powder, and salt. Add to the cooled chocolate mixture.
  • Toss the 12 ounces of chocolate chips in a medium bowl with 1/4 cup of flour, then add it to the chocolate batter.
  • Place mini paper baking cups in each of 42 miniature muffin cups and fill muffin cups about 3/4 full (about 1 tablespoon each) with batter.
  • Bake 18 to 21 minutes or until toothpick inserted in edge of brownie bites comes out clean. Do not overbake. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.
  • Top each with a Ferreror Rocher chocolate and allow to cool completely---about 30 minutes. Carefully remove paper liners, if desired. REMEMBER every oven heats differently so check on them about half way through the baking time.
