Salted Caramel Brownie Bites Recipe – Homemade fudgy brownie bites filled with an easy two-ingredient caramel filling and topped with sea salt. These Salted Caramel Brownie Bites are the perfect mini dessert!
For the brownie bites:
1/2 cup (115 grams) unsalted butter , melted and slightly cooled
1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
2 large eggs at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup (65 grams) all-purpose flour (spooned & leveled)
1/2 cup (45 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
For the caramel filling:
20 soft caramel candies , unwrapped
3 tablespoons (45 ml) heavy cream
Sea salt for topping
Store leftover brownie bites in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
To prepare ahead of time: You can bake the brownie bites 1 to 2 days in advance. I recommend storing them in an airtight container at room temperature. On the day you plan on serving them, make the caramel filling and fill the brownie bites.
Freezing Instructions: Brownie bites will freeze well in a freezer bag or container for up to 3 months. Thaw to room temperature, and fill with the caramel the day that you plan to serve them.
Butter: I recommend using unsalted butter in this recipe so that you can control the amount of salt. If using salted butter, reduce the salt in the brownie batter from 1/4 teaspoon to a tiny pinch.
Caramels: It’s best to stick with a soft caramel candy for the filling, I really love Kraft’s soft caramels.
Heavy Cream: You may also substitute milk for the heavy cream in the caramel filling.
