Need a pretty dessert to feed a crowd?   Impress your guests with delicious little brownie bites with homemade frosting!

From time to time I am asked to make dessert for a large group…such a church or school event, or large party.  Although I love making desserts totally from scratch, time is not always on my side!  I like to have a few ideas up my sleeve that are pretty, delicious, and easy to make for large events.

If you start with high quality, store bought brownie bites and dress them up with a selection of delicious homemade frostings, you can easily make dessert for a crowd!  I used delicious brownies from Sugar Bowl Bakery, available at Costco and many local grocery stores.

  1. Havn’t tried it, but it looks delicious!

  2. Hi girls…I need your help!!!… I try made the frosting but is a really desaster…when i combine the butter and cream cheese they will separate… I try a lot of times,step by step and the butter is a Room temp, what I did wrong :'(…

  3. Definitely saving this. I love how easy it is to switch up the flavor. Craving the raspberry right now!

  4. This is such a cute idea Glory! So many pretty colors and flavors… And as a huge brownie fiend, I’d definitely need to sample every single one. 😉

  5. Cute! I’m going to try your s’mores marshmallow frosting with these and garnish with crunched up graham crackers for a bonfire/cookout this weekend! Do you think they’ll be okay since the event is mostly outdoors? Temps expected to be around 80 degrees…

  6. Yum! These look awesome and I bet they taste just as great! Thanks for the idea, my kids have bake sales x 3 each school year and sometimes more. This will help me out! Love you!
