Our rich chocolate frosting recipe is perfect here. Or give our ganache frosting a try instead!
Dark chocolate morsels – We use melted chocolate chips in the batter instead of cocoa powder. It makes the brownies even fudgier and richer with a deep cocoa flavor.
Unsweetened cocoa powder – I recommend using Ghirardelli or Rodelle brands in the chocolate frosting.
DOVE® PROMISES Caramel Milk Chocolates – These are individually wrapped candies with a caramel center. Feel free to use another brand of caramel-filled chocolate candy (Rolos) if preferred. Or stuff one of our homemade caramels into the brownie for delicious flavor..
Caramel sauce – Ice cream sundae topping works well here. It adds the perfect amount of caramel flavor to the chocolate frosting.
First, make the brownie batter. Spoon batter evenly into the cavities of a mini muffin pan.
After baking, immediately press an unwrapped Dove chocolate (or Rolo) into the center of each brownie bite. Let the brownies cool completely while you make the frosting.
Pipe chocolate caramel frosting onto the top of each brownie bite for a picture-perfect presentation!
Tips and Tricks
- Spray the muffin tin with baking spray before adding the brownie batter.
- Fill each mini muffin cup with about 1 tablespoon of batter. I use a measuring spoon to ensure the batter is divided evenly.
- Store frosted brownie bites covered at room temperature. Enjoy within 3 – 4 days for best taste.
- Use our homemade caramels instead of store bought!
You can bake the batter in a cupcake pan or regular muffin tin instead, but they will be more like brownie cups than brownie bites. Still sounds delicious to me!
I used a pastry or frosting bag fitted with a star tip to frost these chocolate caramel brownie bites. If you don’t have one, scoop the frosting into a Ziploc bag and cut the tip of one corner off to create your own “DIY” frosting bag.
Yes, you can freeze these. I would freeze them unfrosted, then pipe the frosting on after they’ve thawed.
