Football Brownie Bites

When I saw these Football Brownie Bites over at What’s Gaby Cooking, I totally fell in love and knew I had to make them for one of our football gatherings. They turned out so cute and were a huge hit for the Husker game. Don’t you love my Husker platter? Go Big Red!

I used my favorite brownie recipe to make these little guys. It’s super rich and fudgy which is perfect for a bite size morsel. I topped them with canned cream cheese frosting but if you are an overachiever you could make your own. I just didn’t bother since such a small amount was needed.

The recipe makes 24 mini brownies but if you are attending/hosting a big party I definitely recommend doubling the recipe since mine disappeared and there were only about 12 of us.
