Hershey's for the Holidays (and a giveaway for you!)



Let's face it, the holidays wouldn't be the holidays without a few treats!  Fortunately, Hershey's has plenty of seasonal goodies to choose from.  Whatever your taste in candy, there's a Hershey's holiday candy that's just right for your party candy dish, stockings, gifting list, class holiday parties.... and of course, your mouth! This year's Hershey's Holiday Collection includes some new items

NEW – Hershey’s® Collection Pretzels
NEW – Hershey’s® Collection Almond Clusters
NEW – Hershey’s® Kisses® Milk Chocolates Gifting Canister
NEW – Twizzlers® Tree Shaped Cherry Candy King Size

as well as some familiar favorites:

Plastic candy canes filled with Hershey’s® Kisses®, Jolly Rancher candies and Bubble Yum gumballs
Hershey’s® Kisses® wrapped in holiday colors
Reese's® Peanut Butter Bells, Trees, and Snowmen
York Peppermint Patties in holiday wrapping

Hershey's sent me an assortment of candies from their Holiday Collection, and it's like our home has transformed into candyland.  The kids love it, and I've been so inspired to create all kinds of treats!

Since school is about to go on winter break, I wanted to make little baked treats for the kids' classmates.  Hershey's sent us a giant (34.6 oz) bag of their Candy Cane Kisses, which are mint candy with tiny red candy pieces and red stripes, shaped like a traditional Hershey's Kiss..  They are wrapped in silver and red foil, which makes them perfect for the holidays!


You can easily put a half dozen of these Candy Cane Kisses into a goody bag, seal it with a twist tie, and have an easy, cute holiday present for a classmate, but I decided to go a bit fancier, and made Candy Cane Kiss cookies:


I got the recipe from Our Best Bites.  The cookies are delicious even without the Candy Cane Kiss, but adding the Candy Cane Kiss makes them sensational!  They taste like a luscious mint brownie, and the red and white peppermint stripes make them look so festive.  They'd be great for a cookie exchange or any other party, especially because they're sooooo easy to make!
