These brownie bon bons started in the kitchen of John Elway’s Steakhouse in Denver, Colorado. No, the former Denver Broncos quarterback doesn’t sprinkle his desserts with rainbow confetti. But he does make a mean brownie — with a twist. He uses coffee extract in the batter, which adds a deeper flavor to every bite.

I made these big-boy brownies straight from [premium title=”his recipe” url=”,,20711701,00.html”], but then I couldn’t resist turning them into cute confetti-covered confections.

Try not to eat them all. Trust me, this is difficult.

You can eat one, I guess. Then you’ll still be left with two dozen.

Since brownies are so fudgy, it’s easy to turn them into small balls. Just shape them with your hands until they’re round. Then chill in the refrigerator for a few minutes until firm.

Now, here’s where the party starts. Have some pastel confetti sprinkles handy.

Confetti Brownie Bon Bons

Makes 24

1 batch [premium title=”John Elway’s Chocolate Brownies” url=”,,20711701,00.html”]

16 oz. vanilla candy coating

Confetti sprinkles

1. Bake brownies and cut into 25 even squares. Gently shape each square into a round ball and place on a wax-paper-covered baking sheet.

2. Chill in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. Prepare another wax-paper-covered baking sheet.

3. When brownie balls are ready to coat, heat vanilla coating in the microwave on low for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.

4. Remove a few brownie balls from the refrigerator. One at a time, place in the bowl of coating. Use the spoon to cover the top of the ball with coating and then gently lift the ball out. Tap off any excess coating and let ball slide to the end of the spoon and then slowly slide off onto the second wax-paper-covered baking sheet.

5. While the coating is still wet, add confetti sprinkles on top.
