Tiramisu Brownie Bites

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

I needed a quick bite-sized dessert for a recent dinner party. I was making Italian food, so I wanted an Italian flavored dessert. I love brownies, so I thought what about Tiramisu Brownie Bites? 

I used a box of Ghirardelli brownie mix and substituted coffee for the water in the mix. I whipped up a light mascarpone frosting to go on top. OMG - delicious! The frosting was so light and scrumptious. It was the perfect ending to the meal!

  1. These brownie bites look amazing! I'm totally trying your substitution of the coffee for water when I make brownies next time. Great idea!

  2. As much as I don't like to drink coffee, I can't argue with what it does to chocolate. And that frosting! Love!

  3. I made these for my family - absolutely yummy!
