Peppermint Kiss Mini Brownies

Every year my sister and I get together and bake all day for Christmas. We haven’t been able to these past few years so needless to say this year was a little crazy. We didn’t really plan our time very well, so what we intended to make was pretty much cut in half. Regardless, our baked goodies turned out nicely and made it to the family Christmas that night successfully.

These mini brownies are super easy to make and taste great! If you love peppermint and chocolate, you will eat these until the sun comes up 🙂 I found this recipe on a favorite blog picky-palate. You could mix this up by making your own brownie mix, but the store bought mix saved on time and still tasted great!

Preheat your oven to 350º. Prepare your brownie mix as directed on the box. Drop the mix onto a mini cheesecake or muffin pan that has been sprayed with PAM generously. You want to fill it about 3/4 full. Place the peppermint Hershey kisses in the middle without hitting the bottom of the pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through. Let cool completely.

Melt chocolate chips in double boiler (Take a saucepan and fill with some water, boil the water and then place a glass bowl that fits nicely on top of the saucepan, then place chocolate chips in bowl) Once melted, add half & half. Mix thoroughly until completely melted. Spread or dip the melted chocolate on top of the brownies. Sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top. Enjoy & Happy Holidays!

What you’ll need:

1 brownie mix 9×13 inch size

18 Candy Cane Hershey Kisses

1/2 Cup chocolate chips

2 Tablespoons heavy cream

3 original candy canes, crushed
