Close your eyes and picture the best brownie you’ve ever had. Do you like them super dense? Chewy? Gooey? Slightly underbaked? Got the picture? Now stuff that amazing brownie the the caramel deliciousness of a Rolo. Now cover that entirely in white chocolate, and garnish with chopped pretzels. And you have…Rolo-Stuffed Brownie Truffles!
I made these because I had a bag of Rolos lying around that I wanted to bake into a recipe. Inspired by my recent success in the red velvet cake ball department, I wanted to go a similar route and make these brownie truffles.
I feel like I should start sharing how long it takes for each dessert to be eaten by my family. In this case, they were gone in one night. I wish I could say that was record time, but I’ve had desserts finished in less time than that. Oy!
- One recipe brownies (any brownie recipe you like, I used this trusted fudge brownie recipe)
- 10 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs, cold
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 bag Rolos
- Any 'meltable' white chocolate (I used Lindt)
- Pretzels/colored sprinkles for decoration
- Prepare brownies:
- Melt the butter, sugar, cocoa, and salt in a large bowl in the microwave.
- Melt in 30 second increments and stir after each time until the butter is completely melted. The mixture will look gritty.
- Set aside for a few minutes as you get the other ingredients ready. You don’t want the mixture to be piping hot.
- Stir in the vanilla extract.
- Add the eggs one at a time, stirring after each addition.
- The batter will be thick and look shiny.
- Add the flour, beating with a whisk until fully combined.
- Bake the brownies for 28 minutes.
- Let brownies cool completely. Trim off the hard edges, and mash them up in a bowl.
- To form the truffles, roll the cooled brownie around the Rolo and into a ball. (See picture below).
- Cool truffles in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
- Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.
- Dip each brownie truffle in the white chocolate, and decorate right away, as the chocolate hardens quickly.
- You may want to cool for another 20-30 minutes before serving, but that is optional.
Forming the Truffles
I hope you enjoy these as much as my family and I did! Thank you for reading, and stay tuned!
