This is the time of year my friends and I love to hang out on my back porch, light a fire in the chiminea, have a cookout and sit outside in the crisp evening air. It’s pretty much our favorite weekend activity. It’s kind of potluck; everyone brings something to share.
Last night, my friend Leslie brought these for dessert. I actually don’t eat a lot of sweets, but these were too good to pass up. Gooey, cakey, delicious!
Rolo Brownie Bites with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting
24 Rolo candies
1 box fudge brownie mix plus necessary eggs, oil & water per package instructions (or your favorite homemade recipe)
4 Tbsp butter, softened at room temperature
4 oz cream cheese, softened at room temperature
2 Tbsp caramel sauce
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
Remove all the wrappers and refrigerate the Rolo candies. Preheat oven to 325° F and prepare brownie batter according to package directions. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin with cooking spray and fill each cup 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and immediately press a Rolo, smaller side down, into the center of each brownie bite until the top of the Rolo is even with the top of the brownie bite. Cool for a couple of minutes then carefully remove the brownie bites from the pan to a baking rack. Allow to cool completely.
