Like bread + butter, peanut butter + jelly, chocolate + more chocolate.

Chocolate + more chocolate in the form of no-bake brownie bites = the simplest and the best kind of food. Dessert food that is.

  • 1 package (18.3 ounces) brownie mix
  • 1 cup unsalted butter*
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • Optional: 1 chocolate pudding mix or 1/3 cup powdered sugar


  • In a large bowl, combine the dry brownie mix, mini chocolate chips, and the mostly melted butter (microwave until melted, but small chunks of unmelted butter still remains).
  • Mix with a spoon and then knead with your hands until the mixture comes together.
  • Roll into very small bite-sized balls -- these are rich so the smaller the better!
  • If desired, roll the balls into the dry chocolate pudding mix or powdered sugar for a pretty coating. Shake off the excess.
  • Enjoy right-away! Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Recipe Notes

*Depending onΒ various factors (brownie mix being the main factor) you may need an additional 2-4 tablespoons butter. Add the melted butter until you can easily form balls of the mixture.

  1. What!! This is too good to be true. Drooling over here. I think I need to make these ASAP. These don’t even need an excuse or an occasion. Because brownie balls are acceptable all day every day. πŸ˜‰ Yummm! Love this, Chelsea! And you totally did great with the brown food photos. Love ’em!

    1. Haha definitely an everyday acceptable treat πŸ™‚ Thanks Erin! I think shooting brown food is so hard!! You sure have a talent for it (your breakfast cookies you just posted – awesome!)

    1. Thanks Beth! I found them at a Burlington Coat Factory (random right?!) I totally want more of them in different colors, but they only had the one color – yellow. So it basically shows up in 99% of my photos πŸ™‚

  2. These are awesome Chelsea! Simple and no bake to satisfy my chocolate brownie craving?? Count me in with a big ole spoon since I probably wouldn’t be able resist just scooping the dough straight into my mouth right from the bowl!:)

  3. Oh my goodness! It doesn’t get much easier or tempting than that πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for linking up to Freedom Fridays – I’ve pinned this and will be sharing on my Facebook page! Have a great weekend! Hugs πŸ™‚

  4. ummmm okay so Chelsea this is genius. What if you did this with other mixes? Like just add butter to a cake mix? Have you tried it? That sounds so good. THESE sound so good. Also, I can’t believe you’ve essentially given me permission to make and eat an entire batch of brownies within 10 minutes. You are cruel.

    1. Haha! I totally got excited after doing the brownie and tried it with 2 other cake mixes (yellow and chocolate) totally worked! So those recipes will be on the blog soon haha! Thanks so much Karen πŸ™‚ Oh my gosh definitely dangerous – pretty sure I ate basically the entire batch of brownies…

  5. Genius, Chelsea! I love how simple this is. I’ve made my share of cookie dough truffles and things of the sort, but never have come across a recipe so yummy sounding with such few (delicious!) ingredients. I’ll have to try this. Pinning.

    1. I’m not sure, since I haven’t tried it, but my first thoughts are it wouldn’t hold together or work. But if you try it I’d love to hear the results. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!

    I made these tonight and I love them=]
    I used coconut oil instead of butter though. And added two huge spoonfuls of organic peanut butter. Amazing!

  7. These sound wonderful, Just curious though about the texture, when eating plain brownie mix, it’s so granular, does that go away with the warm butter?

    1. I was wondering the same thing. I’m not a fan of cookie dough for that very reason (granular texture). But I will try chocolate anything!

      1. It’s still a bit granular, but no where near as much as cookie dough in my opinion! I thought the texture of these were more like fudge. But if you don’t like the granular texture, I’m not sure if you would love these. Hope that helps!

        1. Yes, that helps! I think I will give this recipe a try. If it’s too granular for my liking, I can always add an egg, some flour, and vanilla to turn it into cookie dough and bake it. Thank you!

    I needed an easy dessert for a church social and these were a hit! I made them with butter and a little coconut oil since I didn’t have enough butter. They were so easy and yummy too! Next time I think I will add some instant coffee too! Definitely a great combo! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  9. I have a question. Does the recipe really work, and do you thing it would taste good if i dipped it in melted chocolate and added sprinkles in top?

    1. I would never put a recipe on my site that didn’t work out for me. And sure I think that would be tasty. It will definitely make a dense and rich treat.

    1. That’s what I generally use – those are the best ones! Just make sure the ounces on the brownie mix are the same (18.3) πŸ™‚

    1. SO great to hear you enjoyed these! Thanks so much for the comment πŸ™‚ Love the pictures on your page on this recipe!

    I’ve made these a couple of times and they are always a hit. This time, I rolled them in sweetened shredded coconut. Delicious!

    I know this is an old recipe and you might not be reading comments any more, but I wanted to share that I also tried with:

    Spice cake mix (15.3 oz box)
    3/4 cup butter
    Cinnamon chips
    Rolled in a white sugar/cinnamon mix (like you might mix up for toast.)

    IMO, these might have been tastier than the brownie batch!

    Thanks for all of your tasty recipes!!

    I made these with my cooking club at school, and it was perfect! We set out a mix-in/ topping bar of coconut shreds, more chocolate chips, crumbled graham crackers, candy cane dust, crumbled pretzels, and mini marshmallows, and they had a field day. They loved getting their hands dirty and customizing their own bites to keep or give as gifs. Thank you for this simple and fun recipe!

    1. What a fun idea to have all the toppings set up! πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for sharing! I’m thrilled these were a hit Kirsten!

    Chelsea, these were a hit! I made these for a pot luck last week because I needed something quick after a failed cheesecake attempt. I ran out of butter, and substituted coconut oil for the rest. Rolled and dusted in powdered sugar…they were gone so quickly & it’s been requested that I make them again!!! I called them “truffles” and no one knew it was just brownie mix. Wow. A lifesaver for sure!

  13. So glad I found this recipe, I plan on making them for my daughters bday and using M&Ms on the outside to make them look like a colored disco ball!! πŸ™‚
