Chocolate and Candy Canes

I've said it before - and I believe it bears repeating - there are two flavors that mean Christmas to me.

Yep, I'm talking about the beloved chocolate meeting up with beautiful candy cane.  

This year I decided to try an idea that had been floating around in my brain (and apparently in a lot of other folks' brains too because when I did a google search on this idea I found I was NOT the first to think of this) involving these two beloved flavors.

It all started with some Candy Cane Kisses one of my students gave me.  And I got to dreaming of putting these in a brownie (like those peanut butter chocolate kiss cookies).

So the great Candy Cane Kiss unwrapping began while Baby Bee made the brownies.

Honest, the amount of wrappers is exactly equal to amount of kisses in the bowl.  Really.....

How can you doubt me?

Attempt #1....
This is what happens if you add the kisses about half way through the process.
They really looked like little red and white shall I describe glands.  Not appetizing at all.

Attempt #2.......
This time we put the kisses in right before we popped them in the oven.
Still a little funny looking......

Isn't it cute how the kiss holds it shape?
but boy are they delicious.

Quick grab one before they are gone!

 Since they didn't look that festive I popped them into some mini cupcake wrappers 
Chocolate & Candy Cane & Christmas!

So....wanna' come over and share some of the FAILED ones?  
Trust me they still taste delicious!
I'll make you a latte!  We can sit around the kitchen table and reminisce on holidays gone by
