A few nights ago I was looking at a recipe for Red Velvet Truffles online when Hubby says “we should make those…but with brownies inside!” – as brownies are his very favorite dessert. Of course, by we, he meant me. LOL. But, I was happy to oblige. They were easy and are very tasty! We brought them to a Christmas Eve gathering and they disappeared very quickly.
1 Box of your favorite brownie mix (or a good homemade recipe, if you have one)
1 Can chocolate frosting
1 Bag of good dark chocolate, for dipping
Bake brownies according to package instructions and cool completely.
Crumble into small pieces and mix in the entire can of frosting. I used my KA Mixer with the paddle attachment. You can do it by hand, but it is really messy!
With a teaspoon, scoop out a small amount of brownie filling and roll quickly in your hands. Place on parchment. Repeat about 50 times (I got 45, but I think some were too big).
Put the brownie balls in the freezer for about an hour to harden.
Now, melt the dark chocolate and butter over a double boiler.
Remove balls from the freezer. Give them a quick roll in your hands to make sure they are even. Dip in the chocolate and return to the parchment paper to dry – same as before, repeat about 50 times. While still wet you can top them with any kind of decoration you like. I choose to keep these plain.
