Hershey Lover’s Brownies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For Easter this year, I decided to make one of my daughter’s very favorite desserts, the I Love Hershey Kisses Brownies that I developed back in 2011. The brownies live up to their name; they are loaded with Hershey chocolate, from the cocoa powder to the kisses (which make an appearance in both the brownie base and the frosting). To make these brownies special for the holiday, I sprinkled the frosting with candy Easter egg sprinkles and put rows of Reese’s Pieces Eggs on top.

These brownies are VERY decadent and heavy, so you are safe cutting them in smaller pieces if you like. The peanut butter eggs add the perfect peanut butter accent to the Hershey milk chocolate. If you prefer your frosting less sweet, you can substitute semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips for the miniature kisses.

  4. For the frosting: Combine butter, milk, and sugar in a small saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat until mixture reaches a rolling boil. Boil and stir 1 minute. While still on burner, quickly stir in the miniature Hershey chips and vanilla. Pour over warm brownies and let set before cutting.
