"Delicious! I used Ghirardelli ultimate fudge brownie mix with mini chips. It comes with a fudge topping package. I topped mine with Rolos. The Rolos were a big hit. I bake them in an unlined mini muffin pan. When they were cooled, I drizzled the fudge topping over them and then transfer to a paper liner. They are much more attractive that way."

"What would happen if I used a regular muffin pan and not a mini pan? Wouldn't the serving change to twenty four? Yeah I rather used mini pans??"

"I made these fir the first time. I have my own basic recipe for preparing a brownie mix: 2 eggs, 1/4 cup Hershey syrup, 1 packet cappuccino powder, 1 package (3.4-oz.) package instant chocolate pudding mix, 1/3 cup each cold water and vegetable oil, 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract, the brownie mix for 13x9x2" pan size. I cut up enough Hershey chocolate bars in pieces (miniature dark chocolate and milk chocolate plus one regular-size Hershey chocolate bar with almonds) to make 1 cup and added 1/8 cup all-purpose flour. I used 24 miniature muffin pans and 16 regular-size muffin cups for these treats. I used paper liners for all the muffin cups and immediately topped each of the brownie cupcakes with a kiss-I used cherry cordial, peanut butter and Hug kisses. I baked the treats 20 minutes even for the miniature treats and 25 minutes for the regular-size treats! This is a really great recipe!

"I made these today. They taste great and were easy to make. I followed what rbyb recommended and baked the brownies in the mini-muffin pan, let them cool, put them in the papers, then topped them with the kisses. It worked wonderfully, the papers did not stick to the brownies, and the kisses did not melt. Also, I recommend filling the muffin cups at most 2/3 full and maybe a little bit less. That way, the brownies are not so big around the kiss. I like the brownie to be just a bit bigger than the kiss; that way, they can pop right in your mouth."

"The method that worked best for me was as chascocountry stated . After removing from pans, then I put them in pretty polka dot paper and lastly put the kiss on top. The extra minute or two removing from pans & putting in papers let them cool just enough that when I put the kiss on top it didn't melt. I found that when baking them in the paper, they were messy to open & fell apart. baking in pan & adding papers after yielded a much more professional result.

Thanks to Pam for a quick, pretty treat."

"Have made these eye appealing treats many times. Wonderful cookie tray addition when using peppermint swirl, cherry cordial, or carmel filled Kisses. Just the right size for a cookie tray assorrtment. Plus, makes a large quantity. I agree, use a small cookie scoop for easy and quick scooping!"

"I make this recipe often for family and church. I use the dark chocolate, milk chocolate and peanut butter and striped kisses...they are all great! I just spray the mini pans and put the batter right in without the paper liners....everyone loves them! I think mint would be good too if they had that flavor...."

"I was looking for something different to make for kids' class Valentine's parties. I used the Hersheys' Hugs that are shown in the picture, the problem is if you immediately put them on the brownies while they're still warm, they melt into a puddle. For whatever reason, the chocolate kisses don't do that, but the white chocolate ones do. The next batch I'll let them cool off a bit before putting the kisses on. Other than that they're perfect!"

"I make these all the time (had posted the recipe from TOH on the old BB last year) and use the different types of kisses.   At Christmas I used the red and white striped ones and they looked very festive.   I refrigerate the batter for about an hour (have also held it overnite with good results) and it makes the brownies even "fudgier" but the best part - the batter goes into the small mini cups/tins much neater without the dribbles.   I've started doing this with anything that goes into muffin cups - regular - and especially the minis.

People really like these - they look great on a dessert table and they are much neater to serve and eat than regular brownies.  And - they taste great!!!   Great for school parties, too."
