cupcakey kisses

A friend of mine at work read my post about the salty caramel bars and was wondering why I didn’t bring any to the office to share. Like that one, this is a holiday baking catch-up post, so I won’t be bringing any of these to work. (Sorry.) Have you noticed that Hershey is making kisses in a lot of new flavors lately? I saw the chocolate meltaways and just had to try the recipe on the back of the package. If you can find a bag with the recipe on it, I highly recommend you give this a try.

It mixed up sort of like thick brownie batter. You roll it into balls and place them in baby muffin liners.

They bake into mini cupcakes, but with a denser texture. I could have eaten them just like this.

But wait, it’s powdered sugar time.

This steps makes them so festive.

Now comes the fun part — you press a “meltaway” into each one. If you’re working fast enough, the cupcakes are still super soft. Just be careful not to touch them again for a while, because the kisses get heated through and would smush very easily, but you want them to keep their signature shape. After about 20 minutes, I transferred the pans to the fridge to cool all the way down.

What’s not to love? I packed them up for family and friends, and they were a real hit. I might make these again next year.
