Turtle Brownie Bites

Hi Y'all!

So lately I have been getting asked to make some brownie bites. I have an awesome recipe for  Almond Joy/Mounds brownie bites which everybody loves, but I was asked to make something with caramel or peanut butter. Easy enough right? All I needed to do was replace the coconut filling with caramel or peanut butter. So here is what I came up with..




Turtle Brownie Bites


Boxed Brownie mix (I use the cheap Betty Crocker kind..)
1 bag of individually wrapped caramels, 14 oz bag
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2-1 cup chopped pecans
Chocolate candy coating
1-1 1/2 tablespoon shortening

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Mix brownies according to package. Fill mini muffin pan with batter, I usually fill mine real close to the top.. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine your caramel and heavy whipping cream in a medium saucepan on a low-med setting. Stir until melted and all is well. Add in your pecans, adjust according to taste. I think I only used 1/2 a cup of pecans..

Once the brownies are done, let them cool completely on a wire rack. Once cooled, make a hole in the center. If you have a coring device, awesome! If not, just jam your thumb in the center to make said hole.

Fill the hole with your caramel pecan mixture. At this point I transfer all the brownies to a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for about 10 min. Just long enough to get the caramel hard. While your waiting, get your chocolate ready for dipping. I use the almond bark bars and usually use about 3-4 squares. Place chocolate and shortening in a microwave safe bowl and melt completely using 30 second intervals.

Once your caramel is hardened dip the top into the chocolate and place on cookie sheet to set. If you have any left over caramel, drizzle it over the brownie bites, once the chocolate has set. If your caramel has cooled too much, just reheat it on the stove, add a little bit more heavy whipping cream to thin it out some.


Eat and Enjoy!
