Individual Chocolate Caramel Brownie Cakes Recipe

My sons don’t like to share, and it usually annoys me. When it comes to things like desserts, chocolate, etc., I totally get it. I don’t want to share chocolate cake either, so when I make them my Chocolate Caramel Brownie Cakes, I bake them in individual cocottes so they can each have their own…no one has a bigger slice, no one has to share. It’s also easy to make, and I improved upon my old recipe ever since I started incorporating International Delight creamer.

For this delicious baked treat I’m sharing today, I used International Delight Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel Creamer for a bit of caramely goodness in each sweet bite, and made four Chocolate Caramel Brownie Cakes in cocottes, one for each of us.

Cooking in cocottes is such a hit with my boys that I plan to always make them baked treats this way. It’s awesome to enjoy a delicious chocolatey dessert in peace!

    My kids fight over treats too, I love the idea of giving them each their own serving bowl (or cocotte- never heard of that before). They also love brownies, so I will try this.ReplyCancel

    I saw this on twitter and it looked really good so I had to pop over to check it out. Does it taste more like chocolate cake or a brownie?ReplyCancel

      Somewhere in the middle…richer than a typical chocolate cake.

  • Oh my word those are just way too adorable!! My boys would get a kick out of eating out of their own little baking dish.ReplyCancel

    What a cute idea! Weeks ago I noticed these mini cocottes in a shop and I tought that maybe they wouldn´t be so useful, but now I want to buy a couple and bake mini cakes for my family! Nice blog!!ReplyCancel

    I love everything about this! Brownies are my absolute favorite desserts but I can’t stop eating them, this way I have built-in portion control. :) And it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!ReplyCancel

    I love individual desserts! Those red cocottes are darling. I may need to expand beyond my collection of blue Le Creuset.ReplyCancel
