Brownie Bites

I know I am not so good at posting now that I don't have my weekly fix. I have had a lot of requests for more info about those brownie bites, so I prepared a post for you. WARNING! I am not a food photographer- not even close. So bare with me!!

This recipe found HERE.

Brownie cups with Pretzel Crumble, Caramel and Milk Chocolate

1 German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 egg
1/2 cup butter

In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, egg and butter until smooth.

Scoop batter 2/3rds full into a muffin tin sprayed with non stick spray.

Pretzel crumble

1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoon brown sugar
1 cup crushed pretzels
Scoop 1 tablespoon pretzel crumble on top of brownie batter. Pat down lightly.
NOTE: I made about 3 times as much as this recipe calls for as far as the pretzel crumble goes. I generously patted it onto the top, so it was about 1/3 pretzel, 2/3 cake mix.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the edges are set.

1/3 bag of caramels- melt in a saucepan until creamy.

NOTE: I added LOTS of sweetened condensed milk to the carmel. If you don't, they will harden to a tooth-chipping consistancy when they cool. These were eight MILLION times better with the sweetened condensed milk added.

Immediately after taking the brownie cups out of the oven, pour caramel over the cups, and then sprinkle with chocolate chip.

1 cup milk chocolate chips

Here are the lovies after they are all decorated and cooling in the pan.
