Mini Chip Brownie Bites with Pink Marshmallow Buttercream

This weekend completely flew by!  I’ve had a lot going on lately (work-wise and personally) so I feel like my weekend relaxing and me-time is extra precious.  I know myself, and I really need to get a chance to refresh and recharge when possible to stay motivated and keep working hard.

This weekend was fun, though.  We celebrated my mother-in-law’s birthday (which is today, happy birthday Marcia AND Sara!) by seeing Motown on broadway.  What a fun show! The music was fantastic and the entire thing was so entertaining.  Yesterday we went to a housewarming party for friends and brought these brownies.  It was so nice to see some of our friends and steal time with their baby.  She is an adorable 9-month old that is happy ALL the time. It is amazing.

And these brownies?  What brownie doesn’t do well with a little buttercream on top?  You could of course leave out the food coloring and eat them any time of year, but the pink is perfect for Friday’s holiday.  If you do nothing else for Valentine’s Day, I’m pretty sure that eating chocolate is required.

    Aww fun weekend!! I haven’t even had time to think about what I’m making for V-Day yet…but these brownies are a serious contender. The pink frosting swirl makes them just the right amount of festive!

    Love the idea of marshmallow as frosting – we should do that more, cus it tastes so much better!

    What a fun weekend! Also, can I please pipe this pretty ‘mallow frosting onto everything in my life? Eating PB toast right now, and I can’t help but think it would be a good addition ;-)

    These are SO pretty and obviously what could be bad about brownies w/frosting?! I really think I love Valentine’s-themed desserts more than any other…they are just gorgeous and you can’t beat the colors :) Glad you enjoyed Motown – we went last year and had a great time! Such a fun show. Next week I’m seeing Beautiful (Carole King story) and I can’t wait!
