Candy Cane Kiss Brownie Bites

I know I did my Christmas wrap-up yesterday and you were all thinking FINALLY! No more Christmas! But, I've got one last thing to share with you.

I mean really, Christmas couldn't come to an end without a seasonal treat now could, it? No, no, it couldn't. Besides, I needed something simple and scrumptious as a holiday treat for J's teachers, co-workers and for a little family get-together.

After wracking my brain and countless hours on Pinterest, the perfect combination hit me. 

Hershey Candy Cane Kisses and brownies. 

I found a Reese's brownie bite recipe a while back, but that's not very festive, right? But get one of those tiny pieces of heaven known as candy cane kisses and your  life will forever be changed. 

It's no secret I'm a chocolate lover. If you didn't know that, you do now and {please} never forget it. 

So, that was it, simple and scrumptious. There was just one problem. Finding those tiny bits of magnificence proved to be near to impossible. After multiple trips to Wal-Mart and several other stores I finally found 2 bags of candy cane kisses! 


I kid you not, these little brownie bites are so good J's daycare called me at work to get the recipe before the holidays began and they didn't see me again! Who knew they were basically chocolate gold?! I may be considering buying some in bulk to tide me over until next season. 

Now, before you run out to find the left over bags of candy cane kisses, let's see what else this recipe entails. 

Oh, wait. That's about it. 

A bag of kisses and a box of brownies. Simple as that.



Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

2. Line mini muffin pans with cupcake liners or spray {very} well with cooking oil.

3. Mix the brownies as directed on the box. Pour into cupcake pan.

4. Bake for 14 minutes {ovens will vary}

5. Place a kiss on each brownie. Give them a moment then push them down into a puddle or leave them standing if you prefer.



Voila. That's it folks! This is worth breaking your new years resolutions. I promise I won't tell. You can thank me by leaving sweet comments below.
