Mint Kiss Brownie Bites

I had never seen these babies before I received them as a birthday gift.  They are Creme de Menthe Hershey's Kisses.  They are delicious, but isn't chocolate mint always delicious?  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them until my mom flipped the bag over and saw the recipe for brownie bites with mint kisses on top.  Perfect! 

I used my favorite from scratch brownie recipe and poured the batter into my mini muffin pan.  I used paper liners to ease removal from the pan, but they are not necessary if you grease your pan well.  Bake the brownie bites for about 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.  Once the brownies are out of the oven and removed from the pan, stick an unwrapped Creme de Menthe kiss on the top.  If you wait a few minutes for the brownie to cool a bit, the kiss will keep its shape.  If you put the kiss on right away, it will melt on the top of the brownie.  It just depends what look you are going for, both taste amazing.

More Cake

I have been the worst blogger here of late.  

I made the February Daring Baker's Challenge, but never photographed them or blogged about them.

I have still been baking, just slow to post.  I hope to rectify that situation.

Here is some more cake I made.  Marshmallow fondant critters.
