For this simple treat I use two packages of brownie mix. I usually use Pillsbury, Ghirardelli or Duncan Hines.
Mix brownies according to the directions on the box. Simple, right? Some eggs, some oil, a little water. I do a double batch because
A. I can.
B. They inhale them like air.
C. They freeze beautifully.
Prepare brownie mix according to fudge-like brownie directions. (Really??? Did I need to tell you that? If you wanted cake, you'd use a cake mix, right???? Cake-like brownies? An insult of the highest order!)
Cut in half (or don't, but I like them spread out a little more:
8 oz. or so of Hershey's Mint Chocolate Kisses/Truffles...
|How cute and happy do these guys look????|
Bake according to package directions. For a smaller, deeper pan, they'll take longer to bake.
Once done, remove from oven. Spread another 8 oz. (more or less) of mint chocolate candies over the top. Allow to soften. Spread.
This is your frosting.
It is like the most deliciously easy and wonderful frosting ever. Because it's candy.
Talk about a win/win! ;)
Cut when cool. (Of course we don't wait until they're cool Who could? But it sounds professional, doesn't it?)
They die. And I might not have a ton of extra time on hand. Grrrr............
But with a few extra mixes on hand, I can 'send a dish'....
Because that's what buddies do, right?
