Mini Christmas Pudding Brownie Bites! A whimsical twist on the English traditional Christmas pudding. These would make the perfect little treats to add to your cookie trays and holiday dessert bars.
Today I’m sharing a fun and easy holiday treat, just in case you were looking for a last minute treat to serve your guests this week. Mini Christmas Pudding Brownie Bites!
Christmas baking and candy making is one of my favorite parts of the holiday. I have piles of recipes that I want to make every years but sadly I run out of time and never get to them all.
Christmas pudding brownie bites is one recipe that always finds its way to the top of the list. Not only are they cute but also because they are so easy. They are just brownies rolled into balls, dipped into chocolate and decorated like a traditional English Christmas pudding. Basically a brownie “cake pop.”
You can use your own brownie recipe, or make them from a box, then use melting wafers, or your favorite chocolate to dip them in and decorate, it doesn’t get any easier.
I think these little fudgy bites are cute and delicious! Add them to your Christmas cookie tray and candy gift boxes for family and friends or make them to serve as part of your festive desserts.
2 sticks unsalted butter
2/12 cups packed brown sugar
6 oz. unsweetened chocolate
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
Chocolate to Cover and Decorate
Red Plain M & M
Preheat the oven to 325. Line a 9×13″ pan with foil, spray with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar and the chocolate, microwave on high for 1 minute, then stir. If the chocolate is not softened continue to microwave it at 10 second intervals, remove the bowl before the chocolate is completely melted.
Beat the eggs and vanilla into the chocolate mixture, then mix in the flour and the salt. Do not over-mix. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 30-40 minutes, brownies are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost clean, you want there to be a few “crumbs” on the toothpick.
Decorating the Brownies
Once the brownies have cooled, remove the brownies from the pan and place in a large bowl. Break up the brownies and mix so that the crunchy edges are mixed with the softer center. This step is similar to making cake pops.
Roll the brownies into balls and place the balls on a tray. Once all of the brownies are rolled into balls place the tray in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes.
Next, melt the chocolate melting wafers according to the package directions. Then dip the brownie balls into the meted chocolate and set on a tray lined with a silphat or non-stick surface.
After all of the brownies are dipped in the dark chocolate melt the white chocolate.
Place the white chocolate in a piping bag or skip this step and use a spoon. Pipe or drizzle the white chocolate over the brownie bites then top with a red M & M7. Alternately, you could use red and green melting wafers to make holly leaves and berries to make it a little more decorative.
- Use boxed brownie mix
- Purchase plain brownies from the bakery
