You know what happens when you travel most of the summer and the only camera you use to take photos is your phone one?

You don’t? I didn’t either until it happened to me.

You forget your DSLR camera settings and take some rubish photos.

Leaving the photos aside, I’m in love with the Pumpkin Spice Kisses

I remember seeing some mouth-watering recipe using these spiced chocolate candy last year but in my neck of the woods there were nowhere to be found.

Last week while doing some grocery shopping I spotted with my brown eyes the Halloween corner at the local store and went to check it out.

To my surprise, there they were, shelves filled with tons of candy including Hersey’s Pumpkin Spice Kisses.

I didn’t have to think twice before grabbing few bags (just to be on the safe side)

After eating almost a whole bag (some taste testing was mandatory) idea of a cake with kisses started to develop in my head.

Since I associate fall with blondies, it wasn’t far until I decided to bury some of these irresistible kisses in the blondies batter.

If you don’t like the idea of having candy in your blondies, you can leave them out, but you’re missing out!

      Hi Veronica,

      You can use cake flour instead of whole wheat flour, but it will have more of a cake like dessert. Since whole wheat flour has more gluten I suggest adding 1 more tablespoon of cake flour to the batter to adjust the dry-wet ingredients ratio
