UPDATE: Tried these. They’re great! They need a lot of time to set, but they’re excellent once they do. Plus, I can’t believe I didn’t recognize the recipe, but these are actually a spin-off of an old Bake-Off winner called “Fudge Bon Bon Cookies“.
I’m cheating today and posting a recipe I haven’t actually tried. Believe me, I will, but we have a Brownie meeting today and I’ve been busy gathering craft items to make Family Fun’s Bee Mine Valentines. We do need a snack, though. And since these are called Inside Out Brownies, and since the girls are Brownies, well….we usually serve healthier snacks, but it is they day before Valentine’s Day.
I found this recipe on a great little collection from Maples Inn. But given all the little trademark signs next to the word Hershey’s, I think it might be from the Hershey’s test kitchen.
Inside Out Brownie Cookies
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk — (1 can)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts — optional
1 teaspoon vanilla
32 each Hershey’s® chocolate kisses — unwrapped
2 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, toss together flour and nuts and set aside.
In medium saucepan, combine chocolate chips and butter stirring over very low heat until chips are melted and smooth. (Mixture will be stiff.) Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla to chocolate mixture and mix well. Add chocolate mixture to flour and mix well. Shape 1 tablespoon of dough around each candy kiss, covering it completely. Shape into a ball and place 1 inch apart on un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350° for 6 to 8 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cookies will be soft and appear shiny but will become firm as they cool. Remove from cookie sheets. Cool 15 minutes or until completely cooled.
For chocolate topping:
Melt 2 oz of chocolate chips in a small saucepan with 1-teaspoon vegetable oil and stir until smooth. Dip just the top of the treat in the melted chocolate and set on rack to cool and firm chocolate. Enjoy!
