I’m the biggest fan there is of traditional autumnal sweets. I live for a forkful of warm, cinnamon-spiced apple pie, I crave a cranberry cobbler year round, and pecan pie is my weakness. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t like to change up our favorite fall and winter desserts once in a while! To offset the snowman-sized slabs of cake, pie and cobbler at holiday parties, I enjoy offering little bites of something unique and chocolaty. But still very party friendly and easy on the waistline!

These bites are so simple and scrumptious, and they make a pretty presentation at any holiday party. You can also customize the toppings according to what you like!

Best of all, you only need a handful of ingredients for these sinfully good chocolate brownie bites. Yes, you heard me right! The brownies are irresistibly soft and fudgy, especially with a drizzle of hot caramel on top. Sprinkle on some sea salt or chopped pecans to really amp up the flavor (and pretty presentation) of these irresistible two-bite treats!

Salted Caramel Brownie Bites

Servings 24 brownie bites

Ingredients

For the brownie bites:

  • 1 18 oz. box brownie mix
  • Eggs oil and water, as called for on box

For the caramel:

  • About 15 soft caramels I used Kraft Caramels
  • 1-2 Tablespoons heavy cream

For topping:

  • Coarse sea salt such as kosher salt or fleur de sel
  • Chopped nuts such as pecans, walnuts or almonds

Instructions

For the brownie bites:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line cups of a mini muffin pan with mini cupcake liners. Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Prepare brownie mix according to package instructions. With a small cookie scoop, fill mini muffin cups almost to the top with brownie batter.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Let cool completely before topping with caramel.

For the caramel:

  • Combine caramels and 1 Tbsp. heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until completely melted and smooth. Add more cream if necessary. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. As the caramel cools, it will firm up.
  • Dollop caramel onto tops of cooled brownie bites. Immediately sprinkle with sea salt and/or chopped nuts.
  • Enjoy!

    I love sea salt. Especially with caramel. and chocolate. *sigh* ahhhh dessert nirvana

  16. Can I freeze these. If not, how long can I store them before my party?

  17. I’d say you could make one day ahead. You can freeze and then let come to room temperature on your counter. To store, place in a resealable container for up to 5 days, refrigerated.
