Holiday Sweets: Brownies & Mint Chocolate Truffle Kisses
December 11, 2010 § 3 Comments
I think it’s time for holiday sweets, don’t you?
Yes, please, I will take a dozen!
These fudgy brownies are such a family favorite that we keep the recipe taped to the inside of the cabinet door. Now they’re all dressed up and ready for the holidays with my new love, Hershey’s Mint Chocolate Truffle Kisses.
RECIPE: ELLISON FAMILY BROWNIES
2 sticks of butter
3 heaping Tablespoons of cocoa
2 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Melt butter and add sugar, mix well. Mix in cocoa and add eggs, vanilla, and salt. Add flour and mix thoroughly.
For regular brownies, grease 13 inch pan and pour in batter. Bake at 325F for 35 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
For holiday brownie bites, line a mini-cupcake pan with cupcake papers and spoon in rounded teaspoons of brownie batter. Bake at 325F for 25 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
While your brownies bake unwrap the Hershey’s Chocolate Mint Truffle Kisses. When your brownies come out of the oven press an unwrapped kiss into the center of each one.
Or, if you get bored with spooning batter into tiny cupcake cups, just top a pan of ordinary brownies with Mint Truffle Kisses and green sugar sprinkles.
Note: The kisses will melt a little when added to the warm brownie. Consume immediately if possible, but if you want to transport these beauties without getting chocolate smeared everywhere then pop them into the refrigerator so that the chocolate will harden again.
