Tasty Caramel Mousse Brownie Bites have hidden caramel bits and are topped with a rich, but light chocolate mousse frosting. If you do not want to bother making the frosting, they are just as good with a dusting of confectioners’ sugar.

Caramel Mousse Brownie Bites Recipe


Brownie Bites:
1 box brownie mix (tested with Betty Crocker Chocolate Supreme Brownie Mix with Hershey’s Syrup, 1 pound, 5.3 ounce box)
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup (1 stick or 8 Tablespoons) butter, melted
1/8 cup water
20 Kraft caramel squares, unwrapped and each cut into 6 pieces

Chocolate Mousse Frosting:
1/2 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 Tablespoon cold water
1/8 cup boiling water
1/3 cup plus 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup cold whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place mini cupcake liners in mini-muffin baking tins.

Combine brownie mix (including chocolate syrup pouch), eggs, melted butter, and water. Mix with a dinner fork only until combined. Some small lumps will remain. Fill mini-muffin cups half full. Drop 2 pieces of chopped caramel into the center of each brownie bite.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until tops are no longer shiny. Let cool for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Make sure they are cooled completely before adding any frosting.

Meanwhile, prepare mousse frosting.

For the Mousse Frosting:
In small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water. Let stand 1 minute to soften. Add boiling water and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved and mixture is clear. Cool slightly.

In medium bowl, stir together sugar and cocoa. Stir vanilla into whipping cream, and add to the cocoa mixture. Beat on medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bottom of the bowl occasionally, until stiff. Pour in gelatin mixture and beat until well blended. Chill in refrigerator about 15 minutes to firm up a little.

Fill pastry bag with mousse frosting and form a swirl on the top of each brownie bite (or spread on by hand). Refrigerate brownie bites in a covered container overnight. Best when served at room temperature, but refrigerate leftovers.

Yield: about 6 dozen brownie bites
