So you know I love chocolate right? I do. It is one of my most favorite things in the world. Don’t be silly, my family comes first, but chocolate is a really close second. Because I love chocolate so much it can cause some problems with my weight loss goals. Cue in Freezer Friendly Brownie Bites…
These brownie bites are so awesome! They are made with real ingredients and can be frozen for those moments when I am hungry and want to make a whole pan of brownies. I always have hopes that when I make a pan of brownies I will only eat one, but that NEVER happens. I mean… it would be a shame to let all that chocolaty goodness go to waste. Tell me I’m not the only one who has had brownie cereal the next day? Well, these brownie bites fix that problem. I make them ahead of time and then freeze them in a freezer safe ziplock bag.
When I am having a chocolate craving I just take one or ten out and reheat. They are so moist and chocolaty!
It is another great recipe to add to my growing list of freezer meals. This one fits into the dessert or snack category. I make the simple brownie batter. I add the batter to a mini cupcake pan. Bake them in a 350 degree oven and in ten minutes I have the perfect little bite sized snack. I just know you are going to LOVE these!
I hope you enjoy these freezer friendly brownie bites. Below is the printable recipe:
Freezer Friendly Brownie Bites

Food is my love language. But so is saving money. So I like to combine the two a lot and make thrifty make ahead and freeze meals to save time. Because life is busy, and freezer meals can come to the rescue for all of us. And yes, they actually CAN taste good. Read more...
