Salted Caramel Brownie Bites

Of course we are starting with dessert first
because that is the best part anyway, right??

Ever since I made these pumpkin spice brownie bites
I have been thinking non stop
about what else I could put inside.
I might end up going a little overboard
on the brownie bites…just saying;-)
I hope you won’t get tired of brownie bites any time soon!!!

Let’s get started with…
The Salted Caramel Brownie Bites

What is it about salty and sweet that just gets me every time?
I absolutely loved these, although next time I want to try
a softer caramel center…rolos are a little too chewy.

My kids weren’t as crazy about the salt on top as I was…
in fact my oldest asked me,

“Why does it taste like you dipped them in the ocean?”

Silly boy! Hee hee! I am just refining their dessert palates!

Sweet and salty collide in these fun brownie bites!

One good thing about cold weather approaching means
the start of comfort food.
Tater Tot Casserole is one of my kids favorite casseroles….
who am I kidding?
It happens to be one of my favorite too:-)
I know it doesn’t exactly look like the prettiest meal…
it is hard to photograph melted cheese and soup
and make it look amazing!
But believe me it tastes so yummy!

 

Tater Tot Casserole

1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
salt and pepper
1 pkg. (16 oz) frozen tater tot potatoes
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) cream of mushroom soup
1/2 can milk or water
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
dried parsley

In skillet, brown the meat and onion. Drain off the fat. Season with salt and pepper. Place in greased 2 qt. casserole pan. Top with tater tots. Combine soup and milk/water; pour over tater tots. Sprinkle with cheese and parsley. Bake at 350* for 30-40 minutes.

    Oh.my.goodness.

    Both look amazing. But you had me at “salted caramel brownies.” Enough said.

    Another yummy way to make a brownie bite is to make the brownies and bake according to the package directions. After the brownies come out of the oven and cool dump them into a mixing bowl with a container of white frosting. Mix with the mixer. Then roll the dough into balls and put in the fridge or freezer for about an hour. Then dip in almond bark or chocolate. You could still put the candy inside too. My cousin makes these all the time. She puts them on sticks and decorates them with sprinkles and other things. We love them!

    The salted brownie bites look and sound so elegant and well, the Tater Tot Casserole sounds so . . .Sonic “GRIN”. I think I’ll try those brownie bites I love sweet and salty. Now how to add crunchy?

    How wonderful….the first time I tried chocolate with salt…I was in love.
    I would love for you to consider linking a recipe or two to my Holiday Treats page, an ongoing link party for the season at ndkitchen.blogspot.

    I am new to your blog and LOVE it!

    Love the addition of salt. We’re learning so much more about flavours and the endless possibilities – foodie that I am, this excites me.

  11. Brenda says

    I think that everything tastes better with salt, lol. Especially caramel! What an incredibly easy, delicious-sounding recipe. Rolos are actually my son’s favourite candy. Thank you so much for sharing with Cookbook Sundays!

    mmm this tater tot casserole sounds soo good & really easy to make. I think I might have to try this out for dinner soon! Def looks like something even my picky eater will eat (The husband not the child lol she takes after me & will eat anything!)

  16. says

    I make taters tot casserole but I mix the veggies right in with everything else and sometime it is mixed or if hubby is home it is only wholecorn but everybody ask me to make them this casserole I tell them how easy it is and they try and then come back and say please make me some

      I would think the gooey caramel would leak out before you could get it dipped in the chocolate. Any caramel candy would work for this. The caramel Hershey kisses are much softer, and I like using those too.

  17. says

    Question – I used Confession of a Cookbook Queen’s “Homemade Brownies with Funfetti Frosting” for these bites (without the frosting of course). (Sorry I can’t link to those from this phone.) Will those work for this (i.e., will they flatten properly, etc.)? Thanks.

  18. Stacey says

    Just tried making these and didn’t work at all! Most box mixes call for 1 egg and finally found one that called for 2 so, thats the one I used. Brownies turned out good but, don’t stay together at all for making into a ball!

    • says

      Hhhhmmm. I used a 9×13 mix that called for 2 eggs. If the brownies are soft, they should be able to be flattened and then squeezed together to make a ball. Sorry it didn’t work out so well for you. At least the brownies taste good :-)
