Rolo Brownie Bites with Carmel Frosting

1 (18.5 oz. box) brownie mix (plus necessary eggs, oil & water per package instructions - or your favorite homemade recipe)
24 Rolo candies (can use Ferrero Rocher if desired)
4 TBS butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2-3 TBS caramel sauce 
1 cup confectioners sugar

1.  Remove all wrappers from the candies.  Pre-heat oven to 325℉.
  Grease a mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.

2.  Prepare brownies according to package directions. Fill each muffin cup approximately 3/4 full with batter.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Remove from oven and immediately press a Rolo into the center of each brownie bite.  Cool for a couple of minutes in the tin then carefully remove the brownie bites from the pan to a cooking rack.  Allow to cool completely.

3.  Make the frosting by beating the butter and cream cheese together until smooth.  Add the caramel sauce and blend.  Add the confectioners sugar and beat until creamy and smooth.  If desired use a pastry or plastic bag with a piping tip, pipe the frosting onto the top of each brownie bite or spread.  If desired chill in the refrigerator to set the frosting before serving.
