Double Chocolate Minis

Aaaaand I'm back! Sorry for not posting on monday, I don't usually like to have monday as a non-posting day but I have been busy! I just moved into my new apartment, and my boyfriend just got home  from school on monday morning, which meant double the moving-in process! 

Hopefully my disappearances will be few and far between as the summer progresses, but I am also attempting to get my bearings in this new kitchen. It is a very different atmosphere than my kitchen at home, and I'm still trying to get by with fewer ingredients on-hand, and a different array of utensils and kitchen equipment.

It's a learning curve, I'm sure...but practice makes perfect!!

Anyway, the recipe today is similar to a homemade two-bite brownie. They were rich and chocolate-y but since they are small, it didn't feel like their richness was too much or overpowering. Just the right amount of chocolate goodness!

These brownie bites are moist and just about melt in your mouth. Plus, they're easy to whip up quickly and the recipe makes quite a few. This is great for all you chocolate-lovers out there!
