Tags: ,

Oh my, this brownie may go down in history as one of the best most sinful treats ever!  This shortbread layer at the bottom makes for a buttery delicious addition that is just too good to pass up.  AND how cute are the kisses hidden inside.

Ok, just stop and go make a batch, you are going to love these this weekend!  Hurry and grab a bag of Candy Corn Kisses before they are all gone!  If you absolutely cannot get your hands on them, any of your favorite kiss flavor will do 🙂

Happy baking!

Break out your handy brownie mix 🙂

You know the drill, eggs, oil and H2O 🙂

Whip up your shortbread layer, just a few basic ingredients, then press in bottom of baking dish.

Nice!  Now bake for about an hour 🙂  Wait patiently.

Just before serving melt your remaining kisses, they make a lovely chocolate topping for your brownies!

Now time to eat!  Enjoy 🙂

    I LOVE this idea. I looked everywhere for the candy corn kisses though and they must be sold out. Plus it’s the day before Halloween…oops. So right now it’s in the oven with the caramel kisses. We’ll see how it tastes! Do you think I can use them as frosting too?

    I made these for a Halloween party (i found the kisses at Target). They came out GREAT! you couldn’t see the kisses the way I cut them, but I’m not the best cook so that’s probably why. But they were awesome!

    Couldn’t find candy corn Kisses, but I made these with some pumpkin spice Kisses I found. Turned out pretty good! Although I really just wanted to make these so I could cut them up and see the pretty cross sections like in your pictures. So on that count, candy corn Kisses would have been better.

    anyone know if these are still being made? I called my local Target and they don’t have them. I also checked Amazon and nothing. Wondering how those little pumpkin shaped candy corn would work….
