Holiday Kissed Muffins

A few weeks ago I ran across these Holiday Hershey Kisses at Target and of course I bought several bags of each. I originally was going to use them on cookies but at the last minute I changed my mind and went with chocolate cupcakes. I froze the kisses for roughly 30 minutes before placing them in the center of the cupcakes. I used the chocolate cupcakes recipe I have in the past from Joy of Baking, I also post about them here.
Pour the batter in the cupcake liners like normal.

Place the frozen kisses in the center of the cupcake. Press down slightly.

Here is what they look like when they come out of the oven. I used the peppermint/white choc kisses, mint truffle and the plain kisses as well.

I sprinkled powdered sugar on the tops of the truffle and plain kisses and drizzled white chocolate on the peppermint ones.

Here is what they look like cut down the center.

These were super simple to throw together and everyone loved them. The mint truffle ones tasted like Thin Mints! So yummy!!

  1. I've seen so many great ideas for how to use those special edition kisses. I'm gonna add this one to the list, for sure!

  2. mmm, thin mints! I came *THIS* close to grabbing a bag and I put them back because I knew my husband wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole. I regret that decision.

    I'd eat them all but I think the peppermint ones are so pretty and festive!

  3. Yum yum!!! I love all the different kinds of kisses available during the holidays!

  4. I bought a bag of those candy cane kisses to bake with but wound up eating them straight out of the bag.:(

  5. I love candy cane Hershey's - definitely going to have to try these!
