It's That Time of Year Again!

Here we go with Tax Season again and to start things off we have what I call Brownie Bombs.

I Box Brownie Mix or your favorite brownie recipe

24 Lindor Truffles, unwrapped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan (I use cooking spray).

Mix up brownies using the "chewy" recipe rather than the "cakey" recipe off the mix box. 

Divide batter evenly between the 24 cups.  Bake about 20 minutes or until browmies are done. 

Remove from oven and immediately press a truffle into each brownie.  The truffles will melt and flatten out as they cool.  Cool completely in pan. 

When cool, run a knife around the edge of each brownie and pop them out of the pan.

This recipe is open to all kinds of variation.  You can use mini peanut butter cups instead of truffles.  Or Rolos.  Instead of brownies, use the cookie dough of your choice.  One packet of Betty Crocker cookie mix will make exactly 24 mini muffins.  I have used Chocolate chip dough with Rolos (see October's S'more Cups), Sugar cookie dough with white chocolate truffles (see below) and peanut butter dough with peanut butter cups.  Just be prepared for a sugar rush!
