I was thumbing through an article on-line when I found this recipe. The article was focusing on the 50 best cookies. This recipe was originally published in Taste of Home. It’s kind of funny; I don’t usually find things I love when I’m flipping through the actual magazine, but I usually like the recipes posted in articles like this. Weird.
So what stopped my eye? First of all, we are a brownie family. And even though I’m quarantined, I’ve been so lonely for my family and since they were willing to drive all the way over here just to sit on my deck for a few minutes, I wanted to have a treat ready. Nothing says love like people wearing masks and talking at you through a window.
Needless to say, I did not have the correct ingredients, but my famous sous chef, the great G, and I were able to fake it as always. If you have a brownie mix, score. If you have a cookbook with a brownie recipe, score. If you have some candy, score.
The actual recipe called for a brownie mix and Hershey’s Hugs. We made an 8 x 8 inch brownie recipe, because you know the drill, it’s what we had. I also had Rolos left over from a Christmas cookie. Brownies and caramel are a match made in heaven for this family.
- 1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
- 48 striped or milk chocolate kisses
- Prepare brownie mix according to package directions for fudge-like brownies. Fill paper-lined miniature muffin cups two-thirds full.
- Bake at 350° for 18-21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Immediately top each with a chocolate kiss or hug. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
* From the Recipe Box:
With these kind of recipes, who cares if it’s from scratch or from a box. Just have fun with a couple of kids and go with it.
If I’m going to use a box mix, I always use Pillsbury or Betty Crocker if possible.
These were totally GKid approved.
and remember: MLK Jr said it best: We all came in separate ships, but we’re all in the same boat now. Big kiss, Lynn
