A perfect bite size snack for the chocoholic who also loves caramel, or peanut butter. These package very well as a gift. You can garnish them with peanuts, chocolate curls, piped chocolate, or sprinkles--let your imagination rule! (These are made from scratch. If you are strapped for time or just feel like cheating, you can buy a brownie mix from a store and use that, but I personally think "from scratch" always tastes better).

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (20 ounce) box brownie mix (No Pudge is especially good (and ingredients necessary to prepare according to package instructions)
  • 1 egg (or as indicated on brownie mix)
  • 12 cup oil (or as indicated on brownie mix)
  • 24 Rolo chocolates (To make Peanut butter bites) or 24 reeses miniature peanut butter cups, chilled and unwrapped (To make peanut butter bites)
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (To make peanut butter bites)

Directions

  2. Grease 24 cup mini-muffin pan or coat with nonstick spray.
  3. Prepare brownie batter as instructed on package.
  4. Spoon batter into pan, Set muffin pan on baking sheet. Bake in middle of oven 10-14 minutes or until almost firm.
  5. Remove from oven and immediately press candy, small end down, into centers of each cup until flush with the surface of brownie.
  6. Transfer pan to cooling rack and let stand until completely cool.

I was so happy to find this recipe ~ how can you go wrong wtih rolos? These were easy to make ~ which I like ~ but the brownie part became very hard after cooling. So hard in fact, that it was difficult to bite into. I think with some reworking, these would be great. Thanks for posting.
