Finally, a way to eat bread and chocolate at the same time. Have this tasty treat for breakfast with a cup of coffee for the perfect morning.

Ingredients you’ll need: brown sugar, butter, two cans of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, sugar, ground cinnamon, Hershey’s Kisses.

How to make it:

In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar and the butter. Stir over medium heat until the sugar is melted, then set aside. Cut each biscuit into quarters. Shape each piece around a chocolate kiss; pinch seams to seal. In a large re-sealable plastic bag, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Add biscuits, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. Spoon 1/4 of the brown sugar and butter mix into a well greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. Arrange a third of the biscuits in the pan and drizzle with 1/4 of the brown sugar and butter mix. Repeat layers twice. Bake uncovered at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately transfer the biscuits onto a serving plate. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
