Cherry Kissed Brownie Bites | Taste and Tell

Cherry Kissed Brownie Bites

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 36 cups 1x


Mini chocolate brownies are filled with a Cherry Cordial Creme Hershey’s Milk Chocolates, then covered with a cherry cream cheese frosting for a bite-sized holiday treat.




  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extra


  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cherry extract
  • 36 HERSHEY’S KISSES Milk Chocolates filled with Cherry Cordial Crème, unwrapped


To make the brownies:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray mini muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa together.
  3. Mix the melted butter and brown sugar in a large bowl. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients. Place about 1 tablespoon of batter into each muffin cavity. Bake until the brownies are set, 10 to 12 minutes. The brownies should naturally fall in the centers, but if they don’t, press down the centers with the handle of a spoon. Cool completely.

To make the filling:

  1. Beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Place the frosting in a piping bag fitted with a star tip.
  2. Turn the brownies out of the pans. Place 1 unwrapped kiss in each brownie. Pipe the filling on top of the cups, covering the kiss.
