You guys are in for a treat today! And it's a recipe that was born out of a kitchen fail (those are usually some of my best ones).

A few weeks ago, my kids and I whipped up a batch of brownies. Just plain Jane store-bought mix, but I tried to use my old homemade hack to jazz them up.

FYI – that hack doesn't work for brownies. Ask me how I (now) know.

They were just – cakey. And I hate cakey brownies (apparently my family does too). So they sat on our counter for days untouched.

Well, you regular readers know how much I hate wasting food. So I got a little creative and made these beauties – and what do you know? They were gone in a couple of days! 😉

Brownie Bombs are almost fudgey they are so decadent. They're kind of like the richest brownie you've ever had, but covered in chocolate. And they absolutely couldn't be easier to make – if you've already made your brownies, you really only need 3 other ingredients!

Let's take a look at the (super simple) recipe for Brownie Bombs, shall we?

(Printable version at the bottom of this post.)

Once brownies are prepared and cooled, crumble half of the pan into a large bowl. Add most of the chocolate icing (about 12oz, give or take). Mixture should not be overly sticky but should bind together.

(My brownies were funfetti, FYI – that's why they look like they have sprinkles in them.)

With your hands, take 2 tablespoons of brownie/icing mix and roll into a ball. Place on a cookie sheet lined with a silicone liner or parchment paper. Once all of the mixture is made into balls, chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

With a double boiler, melt chocolate and butter together until stirrable and glossy. (This is a great way to use up leftover chocolate candy; we used krispy chocolate, as you can see above – it gave it a great texture!)

Using two spoons, dip balls into chocolate to coat; place back on lined cookie sheet. Place back in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours to allow chocolate to set.

Such a great treat! These are wonderful year-round, whether they are chilled or a little warm. They're also a fun way to incorporate other flavors – mint, raspberry, or peanut butter flavors would be delicious in this.

Enjoy, friends! Printable recipe:
