Caramel Brownie Bites



I can never have too many brownie recipes! This particular recipe is wonderful and of course tastes even better when frosted with something as yummy as caramel. I look forward to making another batch smoothered with Dulce de Leche, using Jojoebi's recipe and method. Also try my favorite brownie recipe .

PERFECT MOIST BROWNIES

2 (1 oz.) squares unsweetened chocolate
1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sifted flour
1/2 c. chopped nuts, optional

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and beat well. Blend in melted chocolate, vanilla, and flour. Mix in nuts if desired and pour batter into a greased, 8 x 8 inch pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. Do not overbake!

Caramel Frosting

2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, and mix in 3 tablespoons milk and brown sugar. Boil vigorously for 1 minute.

Remove from heat, and beat in 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar. Cool slightly, and beat in the vanilla and remaining 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar. Add more milk if the mixture is too thick.

Make it a sweet Tuesday!
