Dark Chocolate Mini Brownies For Valentine's Day

Dark Chocolate Mini Brownies For Valentine's Day

These are bite sized brownies made of dark chocolate.
Making these for gifting or at a party.

Ingredients: 32 bite size brownies (about 3 cm each)

Dark chocolate
55 g
20 g
Pancake mix
30 g
30 g
Pure cocoa powder
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
30 g
・ Vegetable Oil (to grease the pan)
As needed


1. Coat mini chocolate molds (for oven use) with vegetable oil, and drop 5 mm walnuts bits in the bottom of each mold.
2. Break the chocolate by hand and cut the butter, and microwave for 1 minute at about 600W in a heatproof bowl.
3. While stirring the mixture from Step 2, add the pancake mix, sugar, egg, cocoa powder, and milk, and mix thoroughly.
4. Add leftover walnut bits from Step 1 to the batter from Step 3. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
5. Use a spoon to pour the batter from Step 4 into the molds from step 1, filling each mold until there is just 3~5 mm left at the top.
6. ※ With time, the chocolate and butter will harden, so pour the batter into the molds as soon as it's ready.
7. Tap the molds from Step 5 against your kitchen counter to rid of trapped air bubbles and smooth out the tops.
8. When the oven has finished preheating, pop the molds from step 7 into the oven and bake for about 15 minutes.
9. Once they have cooled, remove from the mold.
10. If you don't have a mini gateau mold, you can bake the batter in a pound cake or normal cake mold and then cut it into bite sized pieces.
