White Chocolate Strawberry Brownie Bites

Celebrate the warmer weather and longer days with a delicious, bite-sized chocolate AZ dessert.


Ingredients

• ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
• ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon coconut oil
• 1 large egg
• ¼ cup brown sugar
• ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
• ¼ cup almond flour
• ½ cup Strawberry Arctic Zero
• Rainbow sprinkles
• 3 tablespoons white chocolate chips

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
2. Melt the chocolate chips and ¼ cup coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the mixture is fully melted. Remove from heat.
3. In another bowl, whisk the egg and brown sugar together. Stir in the vanilla and dark chocolate chips, whisking after each addition. Fold in the almond flour and fully combine.
4. Liberally grease a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Fill the cups about ¾ the way full with batter. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the tops of the brownies start to crack.
5. Using the back of a spoon, gently press in the middle of each brownie to make a well. Remove from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack then move to the freezer. Freeze for an hour.
6. Once removed from freezer, add about 2 tablespoons of Strawberry Arctic Zero to the center of each brownie bite and cover with sprinkles. Freeze another 30 minutes.
7. Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave for about a minute, stirring every 30 seconds. Add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and mix.
8. Remove brownie bites from freezer and thaw about 10–15 minutes, or until they start to soften.
9. Drizzle the white chocolate over the Arctic Zero and serve immediately.
