I found this recipe on Pinterest (shocking right?!), and I made them for my friend Katie’s birthday last year because she LOVES Rolos. This recipe comes from a blog called Cook Lisa Cook. www.cooklisacook.blogspot.com
Rolo Brownie Bites with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting
1 box fudge brownie mix plus necessary ingredients per package instructions (or your favorite homemade brownie recipe)
24 Rolo candies plus extra for the baker’s snack
4 Tablespoons butter, softened at room temperature
4 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature
2 Tablespoons caramel sauce
1 cup confectioners sugar
Remove all of the wrappers and refrigerate the Rolo candies. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare brownies according to package directions. Grease a 24 cup mini muffin tin with cooking spray (or use those cute lil liners) and fill each cup 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 15-20 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 brownie bite. Cool for a couple of minutes then carefully remove the brownie bites from the pan to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely.
To make the frosting, whip the butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add the caramel sauce and blend. Add the powdered sugar and whip until creamy and smooth. Using a pasty or plastic bag with a piping tip (or cut the corner off of the plastic bag – I used a ziplock) pipe the frosting onto the top of each brownie bite. Chill in the refrigerator to set the frosting before serving.
I did keep these in the refrigerator in a sealed container. It made more than 24 for me, but I was fine with that! 🙂
Sorry I do not have a picture of these, but they were VERY yummy.
Speaking of cooling racks, I have to tell you how much I love mine from Pampered Chef.
