two bites don't make a wrong

(that's a terrible pun. i should slap myself because i hate puns.)

my attempt at duplicating two-bite brownies was a win -- popped in the mouth, like the decadent chewy ones you buy in the store supposedly made by some grandmother, except not as sweet and definitely way cheaper than dropping $4 for a bag of 12.

[this picture doesn't do them justice]

i don't actually remember making them. i might have had one too many beers. but i think this is what i did:

melt 1/2 cup (125 ml) of unsalted butter with 7 oz (200g) of dark chocolate in a heat-safe bowl over simmering water. remove from heat and add 2 Tbsp (30 ml) of cocoa powder, and let it cool slightly.

in a separate bowl, i think i beat 3 eggs with 1 cup (250 ml) of sugar, 2 tsp (10 ml) vanilla, and 1/2 tsp salt. stir in the chocolate mixture until well blended. add 1 cup (250 ml) of flour and mix well.

bake them in your greased mini cupcake/two-bit brownie pan for about 10-12 minutes at 350F (180C). they won't be baked all the way through but you don't want them to.

i don't remember how many the batch made but it should make at least 6 or 8 two-bite brownies, the last i counted. my math might have been bad because of the beer.
