Brownie Kisses
1 package brownie mix
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
18 chocolate kisses
Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Mix rogether brownie mix, pecans, egg and water. Wrap dough by rounded tablespoonfuls around each chocolate kiss. Seal edges. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set.

Mounds Candy Bar Brownies
2 Mounds candy bars
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup plain flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Melt candy bars and shortening. Remove from heat. Add remaining ingredients and blend well. Spread in greased 9-inch square pan. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes. While warm, cut into bars.

Candy Corn Bark
16 Halloween-colored chocolate sandwich cookies, chopped
1 1/2 cups broken small pretzels
1/3 cup raisins
1 1/2 pounds white chocolate, broken into squares
2 cups candy corn
orange and brown sprinkles
Spread the cookies, pretzels and raisins evenly onto a lightly greased small baking sheet. Melt chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, or in the microwave, stirring frequently until melted. Remove from the heat while there are still a few chunks, and stir until smooth. White chocolate burns easily. Drizzle chocolate with a spoon over the goodies in the pan, spreading the top flat to coat evenly. Top with candy corn and sprinkles. Let cool until firm. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.


  1. Candy Corn bark is making me drool...yum! So is everything else. My sweet tooth is going crazy!

  2. I knew ya'all would love the bark recipe. That is a KEEPER!

  3. Ack. It's making my teeth hurt just reading the recipes. But sign me up, I loves me sugar.

  4. YUM! I'll take a large order of the Bark. Looks sooooooo good. Dang, I wish I could eat that stuff because I'd be on the way to the store for supplies!

  5. MM;
    All monkeys are sweet freaks. Yeah, I'm making that bark this season and putting it in a big cookie jar for when folks visit. Any takers?

    I know what you mean. I might have one taste to see what it's like, but I don't like what sugar does to my energy levels or my body, so it's purely a holiday affair.

  6. Thanks! Those are really cool! Definately going to give the candy corn bark a try!


  7. I'm voting for Brownie Kisses.

    I'm sure the bark is good, but isn't the fun of candy corn sticking it to your teeth so you have candy corn vamp teeth?

  8. Tell me, Pangs, were you the kid that used to take the candy corn and fit them over your fang teeth and pretend to be a vampire, or was it just me doing that? Yeah, The brownie recipe looks good. I make a couple cookies using kisses and one of them has the cookie surrounding the kiss and it gets melty inside when you cook it. Another is a peanut butter cookie with the kiss pressed into the hot cookie out of the oven--yummers. You don't want to be around at Xmas time. The lucky people on my list get killer themed packages. One year it was everything chai from chai cookies and fudge to chai tea....

  9. You're trying to fatten me up before the feast. I just know it.

    I spent 5 minutes staring at a red velvet cupcake yesterday in the store before tearing myself away. I don't think I could walk away from gooey chocolate kisses inside of a cookie or brownie.

  10. Oh Pangs, I'm a good southern cook and hostess. Red Velvet is a specialty, as are pies of every variety, but my Appalachian Butterscotch pie with meringue is to die for, as is my rum brownie pie....

  11. I'm no way a cook but I think I can handle the candy corn bark! It looks so yum! Every man in my life has always done the, it's not my fault if I was told to get out of the kitchen! LOL
