It’s my birthday month! I turn 43 this week. I’m not ashamed to share that number. And while I know my face has some fine lines and wrinkles that show my age….I’m truly content with life.

Actually, beyond that, I’m truly HAPPY with life. I am blessed with a wonderful husband, 4 awesome kids, and a job that entails making dessert with some of the finest chocolate around!

Life is too short to not enjoy a good piece of chocolate. I’m once again bringing you a delicious DOVE® Candy recipe. If you’ve followed along here at the blog for any period of time, you’ll know that all brownies should be topped with frosting.

However, I had to stuff a little something in the center of today’s brownie bites. It’s like a birthday present. You have to bite into the brownie to reveal the surprise center! A silky smooth chocolate with creamy caramel filling!

Making today’s brownie bites are wonderfully easy. Grab a big glass bowl and add your unwrapped chocolate candies. I used Dove® PROMISES Dark Chocolate, but the milk chocolate would work too! They are so rich and flavorful, they add a great base to the brownie recipe. Once you’ve mixed your melted chocolate and butter together, you literally combine the remaining brownie ingredients just until blended (don’t OVERMIX).

I used a 1Tbsp metal cookie scoop to divide the batter into my mini muffin tins. Bake these brownie bites for about 11-13 minutes, and when you remove them from the oven you’re going to immediately press a DOVE® PROMISES Caramel Milk Chocolate into the center of the hot brownie (unwrapped of course). Allow these to set in the pan, for about 15 minutes. Then remove and cool completely before adding your frosting.

Oh, for the love of frosting, you guys. I used an unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder with some caramel ice cream topping to give this frosting a rich, fudgy flavor. These definitely are one of the best birthday treats you can make. Not only for family and friends…but give yourself the gift of a delicious brownie bite on YOUR own birthday! Life’s too short to just eat cake. Ha! (but if you’re looking for a yummy birthday cake, check out my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Cake with DOVE Chocolate. It’s a great option too)!

    These brownies look awesome, but how much powdered sugar do you use for the frosting?  

  7. Chocolate is always needed no matter what birthday it is!  Love that you incorporated 2 different candy bars into these cute little bites!  And those caramel ones are one of my absolute favorite!!!!

  8. Love brownie bites and these look way better than store bought! I wish I had one right now with a glass of milk.

  9. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! You’re supposed to get one birthday gift for each year, right?? Or at least one birthday dessert for each year?? 🙂 I love the way you described these little Dove chocolates pressed into the center as a birthday present to reveal the surprise center — so cute and delicious!! I’m a total chocoholic and absolutely LOVE the Dove promises (the dark chocolate ones are my favorite — I need to get my hands on these caramel ones!), so I’d go head over heels for your brownie bites!

  10. So pretty and chocolatey. I have been obsessed with brownies lately, and these look like something I would just about die for. I’ve even found myself putting homemade brownies or brownie cookies with my Ben & Jerry’s Brownie Ice cream! Obvi have a problem LOL

  11. Wishing you the happiest birthday ever! I am sure these wonderful brownies help. I am a HUGE Dove chocolate fan. I could each the dark chocolate squares by the dozen. 

  12. Sandra McCollum

    I can’t wait to make these with my kids. Anything brownie related we love. Thanks for the recipe. Sharing today! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet lady. Sharing.

  13. These look delicious and so easy! Dove chocolate has been my favorite for a long time! I like to keep them in my freezer so they’re super cold and I can enjoy them slower (to avoid eating half a bag in one sitting). Beautiful brownie bites – will keep these in mind for the next time I’m wanting to make something caramel-y! 

  14. Sigi

    How much powdered sugar is used in the frosting? It is not listed…Thanks! These look great!

  15. Karen

    How much powdered sugar is needed for the frosting?

  16. I hope you have a fantastic birthday! I want to celebrate the fact it’s Tuesday with these. I can eat a whole bag of those Dove candies!

  17. Great way to use Dove chocolate.

  18. I’d prob just end up eating an entire batch myself. Let’s be honest 😛

  19. Dove Chocolates are my favorite for making frosting – these cupcakes of yours – I want all of them!

  20. I love the Dove chocolates in there – these brownie bites look like the perfect birthday treat!
