Christmas may be over, but that doesn’t mean that our craving for cookies has to be too. I wanted to save a few cookies for the end of the month – that last little sweet hurrah before we all start eating healthy again.

However, that’s not to say that an occasional cookie can’t be part of a well balanced diet - it certainly can and should be. It's easy to do when the cookies (or brownies, in this case) are bite sized and super fudgy.

The addition of just a little bit of coffee to the batter, heightens the chocolate flavor even more and makes these even more delicious and satisfying, especially with a big cup of coffee.

Mocha Brownie Bites

  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 1 box brownie mix
  • ½ cup veg oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mini morsels
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease 3 dozen mini muffin cups.

In a small bowl, combine espresso powder and water; stir to dissolve.

In a large bowl, combine brownie mix, oil and eggs. Stir until everything is well incorporated, but do not overmix.

Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

Spoon mixture into prepared muffin cups and bake for 12-15 minutes until tops are shiny and centers are set. Cool completely in pans on wire racks.
