Brownies made in a mini muffin pan generally take 15 to 17 minutes to fully bake when the oven is set to 350 degrees F. They should also be allowed to cool in the pan for five minutes before being removed onto a cooling rack.
When baked in a mini muffin pan, the resulting bite-sized brownies achieve a particularly chewy texture. They may be made from scratch or a premade brownie mix, and the batter can be combined with chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, chopped nuts or other fillings according to taste. Chocolate candies, cherries, raspberries and other decorative morsels can also be placed on top of each brownie immediately after baking and pressed into the center.
After preparing the brownie batter, coat the mini muffin pan with a nonstick cooking spray before spooning the batter directly into each muffin holder. After the brownie bites have baked and cooled, they can also be frosted with chocolate icing or sprinkled with powdered sugar. Bakers can try a number of creative recipe variations bakers, such as baking the brownies in mini cupcake liners and decorating them with buttercream frosting after cooling. This adds an aesthetic appeal that makes them ideal for children's birthday parties or other celebrations.
