Why Make Brownie Bites

  • Bite sized brownies so you can eat MORE!
  • No cutting required.
  • Easy to store and serve.
  • Perfect topped with frosting.
  • Caramel chocolate heaven.

Today’s Caramel Brownie Bites have a caramel filled Dove chocolate pressed into the center. Every bite is full of velvety chocolate and luscious caramel and the perfect fudgy brownie taste.

Ingredient Notes

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 if preferred.

Caramel sauce – Ice cream sundae topping works well here. It adds the perfect amount of caramel flavor to the chocolate frosting.

Easy Instructions

First, make the brownie batter. Spoon batter evenly into the cavities of a mini muffin pan.

After baking, immediately press an unwrapped Dove chocolate 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.

Recipe FAQs

I don’t have a mini muffin tin. What else can I use for brownie bites?

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!

How to frost brownie bites?

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.

Can I freeze these brownie bites?

Yes, you can freeze these. I would freeze them unfrosted, then pipe the frosting on after they’ve thawed.

Ingredients

For the brownies:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup dark chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

For the filling and frosting:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons caramel sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray mini muffin pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large, microwave safe bowl, combine butter and dark chocolate. Microwave for one minute. Stir and heat an additional 30 seconds, stirring until smooth.
  3. Add in sugar, flour, eggs, and salt. Blend just until combined (do not overmix).
  4. Using a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop, divide brownie batter into muffin tins evenly. Bake for 11-13 minutes. While baking, unwrap DOVE® PROMISES Caramel Milk Chocolates.
  5. When brownies are done cooking, remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate caramel candy into the center. Allow brownies to cool in pan about 15 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. For the frosting, beat the butter, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, milk and caramel sauce together in a mixing bowl until smooth (about 3-5 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed). Pipe or spoon onto each cooled brownie bite. ENJOY!

Notes

  • Any chocolate covered caramel will work in place of the Dove chocolates.

  4. 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!

  8. 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!

  11. Yay for your birthday month! These chocolate caramel brownie bites are a dessert I would love to celebrate with. I love that they’re bite sized so I can have a couple extra! 🙂

  12. Happy almost birthday! You’ll need to celebrate with a LOT of chocolate, so this is the perfect way to start. Frosting is just the best thing ever!
