No visit to see my family is complete without cake. My little nephew has just discovered the wonders of sugar. He’s not allowed to eat too many sugary things, but he’s definitely inherited the family ‘sweet tooth; and he knows that Aunty Lou Lou usually comes armed with something on the sugar scale.
I haven’t made mint choc-chip cupcakes for ages; they were always one of the acquired tastes in the shop. But if I decided not to make a batch one day, you could guarantee lots of people would ask for them. They were also a particular favourite of my Sister-in-Law, so as my Brother was off playing in a golf match, I thought it was Sara’s turn for a treat.
I could have made cupcakes, but the full size ones are still a little too big for my nephew, although I’m sure he’d make a jolly good go at it, so I thought brownie bites would give the best of both worlds… a minty, chocolate sugar hit and big enough for a 2 and 1/2 year old to demolish!
