I came home from my walk this morning and my kids said they wanted Chocolate Surprise Cake. Since I didn't know what that was, they explained it to me. "You know, a cake with a surprise in it...like toys." Okay, since I can't remember EVER baking a cake with toys in it, I suggested candy. They liked the idea. However, I felt too lazy to make a cake from scratch and they just wanted chocolate, so I used a brownie mix. It couldn't have been easier.
These will be great for the boys on Valentine's. Sometimes I think kids get the shaft on Valentine's Day as we all seem to be concentrating on our significant others. This will make them feel special and experience the "chocolate love" we all tend to go crazy for on that day...well at least I do.
These couldn't be simpler to throw together as you will see.
First, find a few of the 46,578 Hershey's Kisses you have left over from the holidays.
Prepare your brownie mix according to package directions.
Pour batter into muffin cups that have been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and place two chocolate kisses in the center of each cup. Use a spoon to cover the kisses with the batter.
Bake until the edges of the brownies are done, you will have to watch them. I let them cool in the pan for 5 minutes and ran a knife around the edges and under the bottoms before I turned them over and flipped them out; they are very moist.
The middle is so moist, almost like a lava cake but the chocolate is not so oozy. The kisses become really soft and melty and taste fantastic. The kids loved it. So did I.
