I like making homemade brownies every now and then, but sometimes it’s hard to eat them all while they’re still fresh and moist…Okay, it’s never really that hard to eat them all, but sometimes you just end up with leftover brownies anyways.

How to Make Fried Brownie Bites

These deep fried brownie bites are like the perfect little brownie truffles. They’re easy to make, and it’s an easy way to use up extra brownies.

This recipe requires you to start with some brownies already made and ready to go. So if you don’t have leftover brownies, why not try out my delicious Homemade Brownies (made from scratch!), enjoy those, and then save a few for this recipe.

How to Make Fried Brownie Truffles:

  1. Use your hands to crush up your leftover brownies into small pieces.
  2. Then mix the brownie pieces together with cream cheese and chocolate chips.
  3. Roll the brownie mixture into 1-inch balls, place them on a baking sheet, and then freeze them for at least 30 minutes.
  4. When you’re ready to fry them up, heat canola oil in a dutch oven on the stove top. The oil should reach 350°F before frying.
  5. Whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, egg, and soda water to make the batter while the oil heats up.
  6. Coat each brownie ball in the batter, and carefully place in the oil. Fry 3-4 at a time. Each one should take about 2 minutes to get crispy on the outside.
  7. Use a slotted spoon to remove the brownie bites from the oil, and repeat the process with the rest.

Once you’re done, just sprinkle some powdered sugar over them and serve warm. These little fried brownie truffles are just so delicious!
