An explosively delicious patriotic treat perfect for Memorial Day or the Fourth, these Bite Size Cherry Bomb Brownies look almost as good as they taste! 

Making these Cherry Bomb Brownies is pretty easy. The brownie bites are made from a box brownie mix, then the cherries are coated in melted chocolate and then dipped in patriotic-colored jimmies.

Ingredients

  • 1 brownie mix
  • mini cupcake liners
  • mini cupcake pan
  • Maraschino cherries with stems
  • White wilton chocolate melts
  • red white and blue sprinkles
  • blue food coloring
  • oil coconut or vegetable

Instructions

  1. Prepare brownie mix as directed on the package. Spoon 2 teaspoons of brownie mix in each lined muffin cup. (Do not fill beyond 2/3 of the way full) Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Let cool.
  2. Prepare cherries:
  3. Line a small cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside.
  4. Drain cherries and gently pat them dry with paper towels then place in fridge for 10 minutes.
  5. In a medium bowl, microwave the chocolate melts in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until fully melted. Using a small spoon dip a small amount of white chocolate in to the center of each brownie bite.
  6. Once you've put the white chocolate on each brownie, add several drops of blue food coloring to the leftover white chocolate and a teaspoon of vegetable or coconut oil. Mix well. (the oil will help keep it from becoming stiff.) Once the blue is the desired shade, dip each cherry in the blue chocolate, roll in your sprinkles and set on parchment lined cookie sheet to harden.
  7. Place decorated cherry on top of your white chocolate on the brownie and serve
