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. And I decided that brownies CAN NEVER go to waste. There must be something productive we can do with them to make them new again.
And that’s when I came up with the greatest idea ever: fry them up into little bite-sized brownie balls. Yum! These fried leftover brownie truffles are the perfect little dessert, especially once you top them with some powdered sugar.

Instead of just throwing them out or letting them go to waste (I hate wasting food!), I wanted to find a new way to eat them. These Fried Brownie Bites seemed like they were worth a try!
They turned out beautifully! Just take your leftover brownies, form them into little balls, and fry!

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:
- Use your hands to crush up your leftover brownies into small pieces.
- Then mix the brownie pieces together with cream cheese and chocolate chips.
- Roll the brownie mixture into 1-inch balls, place them on a baking sheet, and then freeze them for at least 30 minutes.
- When you’re ready to fry them up, heat canola oil in a dutch oven on the stovetop. The oil should reach 350°F before frying.
- Whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, egg, and soda water to make the batter while the oil heats up.
- 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.
- 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!

So decadent! I’d made brownies just to make this recipe :)
Aw thanks Laura!
These are GORGEOUS, and “heaven fried is even better heaven” is going to be my new motto. I’ve been hesitant about working with hot oil until I tried frying some chicken bites this week, and now I feel like I’m totally ready to move onto brownies…the obvious next step.
HA! Totally the obvious next step :) I’m pretty new to it too and quickly becoming addicted! Thanks for stopping by :)
Oh my goodness these look so fun! Beautiful photos as well!!
Thank you so much Lauren!
OMG. Deep-fried Chocolate!!! I substituted the chocolate chips with a small chunk of chocolate in the center, which gave it an extra rich, creamy, gooey chocolaty goodness.
omg that sounds SO awesome!
There are absolutely no words for these amazing photos and these out of control brownie truffle bites. These balls of deliciousness are ON. POINT.
