These rich and indulgent brownies are made with Hershey’s Kisses as the chocolate!
Hi everyone! It’s Dorothy, from Crazy for Crust here today. And I brought chocolate!!
A few years ago I made a pie for my cookbook. It’s a Milky Way Brownie Pie and when I was creating that recipe I wondered if I could melt down Milky Way bars to be the chocolate base for a brownie. And you know what? It totally worked (and tasted pretty darn good)!
So, when I had an abundance of Hershey’s Kisses awhile back (I know, does that actually happen in real life?) I wondered if I could do the same thing. Could I melt down the Kisses candy and use that as the chocolate in my favorite brownie recipe instead of using baking chocolate?
Guess what? YOU CAN!
One of the best things about Hershey’s Kisses brownies is that you make it all in one big bowl. No mixers, no extra bowls, no blenders needed. You only need a bowl, a wooden spoon, and your microwave.
You also need LOTS of Hershey’s Kisses.
Making these brownies couldn’t be easier. First, melt down the Hershey’s Kisses with some butter. Then you stir in sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, salt, and flour. That’s it! Pour it into your pan and bake them until they become a rich and fudgy brownie that tastes like a big Hershey’s Kiss!
But that’s not all. Nope, I wasn’t satisfied. I decided they needed frosting too! The frosting is basically a Hershey’s Kiss ganache: whipping cream melted with the Kisses. It’s poured over the top of the brownies and then it hardens.
These brownies are SO good, especially if you like Hershey’s Kisses. And they’re super chocolaty, something Joan would have approved of! 🙂
