Chocolate-Covered Brownie Balls

Courtesy of Brittany

1 brownie mix
1 1/2 cup melting chocolates or chocolate chips

1.  Prepare brownie mix according to package directions.  Bake until toothpick poked in center comes out nearly clean, but still slightly undercooked.  Remove from oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes..  Scoop brownies with a spoon and roll into tight balls.  Place on a cookie sheet and freeze until very firm, a couple of hours or overnight.

2.  Melt chocolate in microwave until smooth.  Roll each frozen brownie ball in the chocolate and place on a cookie sheet.  Chill unitl chocolate is set or until ready to serve.  Decorate as desired.

Variation:  Mix creamy peanut butter with chocolate and prepare as above.

*We made these for a Christmas treat and sprinkled crushed peppermints on top.  A perfect combination, though the peanut butter mixed in the chocolate sounds great.  A very easy way to stretch a brownie mix.
