What happens when the mailman delivers a big box full of a variety of Hershey’s CHIPITS? Well friends, you get to baking – that’s what! As part of Hershey’s #ChipitsHoliday Campaign, I received free bags of CHIPITS to bake you, dear readers, some holiday sweets! A favourite family treat is decadent brownies, so that’s what I’m sharing with you today. Rich, fudgey, over the top chocolatey brownies, that are perfect for enjoying with a hot cup of cocoa. Yes, it’s total indulgence and you just need one delightful square to satisfy your holiday sweet tooth.
As my husband watched me top these brownies with layers of Skor toffee bits, Christmas sprinkles, and shredded coconut – his eyes grew bigger and bigger! They really are so tasty and decadent. I can’t wait to get back in the kitchen to make them again for the holidays, because obviously we ate them all. And I can’t wait to try out the semi-sweet mint chocolate chipits and the Reese’s Pieces chipits in holiday baking too!
