Yield: 32 brownies

This spin on the classic brownie starts with a chocolate kiss, wrapped in a chocolate batter that bakes up into a brownie ball with a hidden surprise. Dip it in melted chocolate or colored candy melts and shake on some sprinkles for a fun treat.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 32 chocolate kisses, unwrapped
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate chips or colored candy melts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment. Set aside.

In a large bowl, measure the flour and set aside. In a medium saucepan combine chocolate chips and butter, stirring over very low heat until chips are melted and smooth. Use a double boiler for extra protection against burning the chocolate. (Mixture will be stiff.)

Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla to chocolate mixture; mix well. Add chocolate mixture to flour; mix well.

Working quickly, shape 1 tablespoon of dough around each candy kiss, covering it completely. Shape into a ball and place 1 inch apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Cover the dough with plastic wrap while you are working to prevent it from drying out.

Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until cookies are set but still shiny. They will become firm as they cool, so do not overbake. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the brownie bites have cooled, melt the chocolate chips or candy melts in a small saucepan and stir until smooth, or with the candy melts follow the directions on the back of the bag for using the microwave if you wish.

Dip just the top of the treat into the melted chocolate and set on rack to cool. Top with sprinkles if desired. Allow to harden completely before storing or serving.

    Very easy to make. The hardest part is unwrapping the kisses (that’s when husbands come in handy in the kitchen). I made half with nuts and half without — couldn’t keep either on the plate long enough to try for myself !!
