Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolates

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

DISCLOSURE:  I received free product from Influenster to facilitate this review.  My opinions are my own.

I don't know anyone who doesn't like Hershey's Kisses.  They're a great chocolate treat that I believe everyone has eaten!  So, it was pretty awesome to see a huge bag of Hershey's Kisses in my J'Adore VoxBox from Influenster!

My whole family loves Hershey's Kisses.  We even have a Hershey's Kisses cookbook that my daughter picked out at a book fair when she was maybe 4 or 5 years old.  She didn't want the Pinkalicious books or anything like that.  She wanted the chocolate cookbook so we could bake yummy treats together!

And so, that's what I wanted to do when I saw that I would be receiving Hershey's Kisses.  I wanted to bake something with them.  So, I pulled out the Hershey's Kisses cookbook to look for something yummy to make.

At first, I was thinking cookies.  But, ha, I got lazy and decided to do brownies instead.  I usually make this recipe with Hershey's Mini Kisses.  But, I figured, maybe it will be even better with full size Kisses!

Thick and Fudgy Brownies with Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolate
(from Hershey's Kisses Brand Recipes)
Makes 24 Brownies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs
Approx 50 Hershey's Kisses (you can use any flavor, I used Milk Chocolate)

1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

2.  Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.  With spoon or whisk, stir together butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl.  Add eggs; stir until well blended.  Stir in flour mixture, blending well.  Stir in Hershey's Kisses.  Batter will be thick.  Spread batter in prepared pan. (After spreading it, I added more chocolate pieces to the top of the batter.)

3.  Bake 30-35 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan.  Cool completely in pan on wire rack.  Cut into 2-inch squares.

Hershey's Kisses come in six varieties:
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Almonds
  • Special Dark
  • Hugs
  • Caramel
  • Cookies "n" Creme
The suggested retail is $5.29 for an 18.5 oz bag and $3.28 for an 11 oz. bag.
