Gluten-Free Fudgy Mini Brownie Bites

I’m sharing a perfect bite size treat that is  sure to please any chocolate lover, Gluten-Free Fudgy Mini Brownie Bites!  My son made a special request for brownies in his lunchbox this year and I was happy to oblige.  Apparently, he did not want my classic brownies but a mini cupcake version, talk about particular!

I decided to make him fudgy mini brownie bites with chocolate chips melted down in the batter, which give the brownies a great fudgy taste!  

These brownies are fudgy, moist and just plain delicious; really everyone loves them… what’s not to love! My recipe makes exactly 1 pan if you use a mini cupcake pan an fill them 3/4 full.  Mini cupcake pans are perfect to make brownie bites and are a great lunchbox snack.  Theses mini brownie bites are good to store refrigerated for 5 days and mine usually last all week, as long as I keep my husband from eating them!  Okay, I’m guilty of eating several too! Perhaps, make an extra batch just to safe.
