Hey friends! Did you remember to change your clock this weekend? We are always amazed to find how refreshed we feel after that extra hour of sleep. Too bad every weekend didn’t allow us an extra hour.
This week we are sharing our sweet Borghetti Brownie Caramel Bites with you. We have shared Cafe’ Borghetti with you in other recipes, such as Easy Espresso Cake, Espresso Ice Cream Treats, Espresso Fudge, Borghetti Mochaccino, and Borghetti Coke Float. You know that it is super easy to add to any dessert recipe and it compliments chocolate nicely. This week we added a little espresso flavor to our brownie bite recipe to bring out the rich taste of the chocolate and give the bite a flavor boost!
Like many of our recipes, this recipe is super easy. You need your favorite brownie mix or recipe. We used a Betty Crocker brownie mix. You also need a bag of about 35 Rolo candies, Cafe’ Borghetti Espresso Liqueur, chocolate almond bark and some sea salt.
Mix the brownies as directed with an additional ounce of Cafe’ Borghetti Espresso Liqueur. Bake as directed, but pull the brownies out of the oven when slightly gooey in the middle. Allow brownies to cool. Cut the brownies into 2 inch squares. Leave the crust around the edge of the pan. You don’t need that part.
Remember our trick for working with dough in your hands? We shared this trick with you in past posts, like Golden Mint Crinkles. Take a square brownie in your hand sprayed with cooking spray and gently flatten the brownie. Place an unwrapped Rolo in the middle of the brownie and form the brownie around the Rolo. Place on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for one hour.
Melt chocolate almond bark in the microwave using short 30 second spurts stirring in between until the almond bark is smooth and creamy. Dip brownie bites in chocolate until well coated. Drain excess chocolate and place on parchment paper. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt prior to chocolate cooling and hardening. Let brownie bites cool for about 30 minutes and then serve.
This treat brings you the best of several flavor combinations. You get the rich taste of chocolate and espresso with a yummy surprise of caramel in the middle. The sea salt does its part to enhance all of the flavors with a little salty-sweet combo. Yummo! Make this treat for a football tail gate, a special treat after Thanksgiving dinner or just because you are craving something salty and sweet.
