I found these cute little things from Whisk Blog! What a cute idea for the holidays. I substitued the frosting for Nutella and sprinkled the tops with crushed candy canes! Really simple and pretty for the holidays and great to bring to a cocktail party.
Recipe – From Whisk: A Food Blog
Makes 1 8×8 pan or 2 dozen minis
½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa
¼ teaspoon baking powder¼ teaspoon salt
Heat oven to 350˚F. Grease a mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add eggs, and beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to egg mixture, beating until blended. Stir in nuts, if desired.
Fill a piping bag (or freezer bag) <– This is a must, makes it very easy to fill and make them all even! And fill the mini muffin cups. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
I mixed Nutella with some icing sugar and piped it onto the tops, and sprinkled them with crushed candy canes!
