Tuesdays with Dorie: Brownie Buttons

A tiny brownie with a hint of orange zest and a white chocolate topping? Yes please. The bite-sized brownies were chosen by Jayma of Two Scientists Experimenting in the Kitchen.
They took almost no time make and they didn't require pulling out the stand mixer. So easy and so simple. The sugar got treated with orange zest while bittersweet chocolate, brown sugar and butter melded together on the stovetop. Then an egg, vanilla and the zested sugar was added and lastly the flour/salt combo. Baking time was around 15 minutes and then they cooled on the counter. The last step was melting white chocolate and then dipping the tops of the brownies in melted white chocolate. Delicious. Thankfully the recipe only made 16 because their size means you could start popping them in your mouth and not stop until you ate them all.
