These are easy to make and are a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I made mine with a leftover bag of Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses. Just didn’t get around to baking with them during the holidays but the the red and white is perfect for Valentine’s Day. Actually, these would be perfect for either holiday. Since I realize that the Candy Cane Kisses are probably long gone from the store shelves, see if you can find some red and white Hershey’s Hugs. I also saw that Hershey makes a Cherry Cordial Creme filled Kiss for Valentine’s day. Any of these would taste great tucked inside a mini brownie tart.
These are easy to make.
Hershey Kiss Brownie Tarts
1 box of your favorite Brownie Mix (I used a Betty Crocker Supreme Brownie Mix with a Hershey Syrup packet in the box.)
Hershey Kisses (Hugs)
Mini paper tart/candy cups
Mini Muffin Pan
Mix up your brownies according to the directions on the box. Place mini paper tart/candy cups in a mini muffin pan. I recommend you spray the insides of your paper cups with Pam Cooking Spray. I did not do this step and my brownies are sticking a bit to the paper wrappers.
I used a small cookie scoop to add the brownie mix to each paper cup. A spoon would work fine. Fill approximately 3/4 of the paper cup. Bake approximately 15 minutes. I would periodically check on them after 10 minutes. While they are baking, unwrap your Hershey Kisses. Remove the brownie tarts from the oven and place a Hershey Kiss in the center of each tart and push into the tart gently. Let the whole pan sit on a cooling rack to cool. The Kisses will start to get soft. Just leave them be and they will firm up as they cool. After they are cool, move them to serving plate.
That’s it! Cute and delicious. Enjoy.
