Ring ring a ling, bake all the things!
It’s my favorite time of year –holiday baking season!
Dude 3 and I love spending time baking together in the kitchen and we have already started our holiday baking festivities in preparation for a festive, delicious holiday season.
After spending some time in Hershey, PA recently, soaking up the scent of fresh chocolate, we have a few candy dessert ideas that will please all of your guests this holiday season.
Best part, they can all be made with Hershey’s candies!
Which is perfect because one of our favorite parts about visiting Hershey is spending a little time at Chocolate World.
You get to learn so much about the chocolate making process that Hershey uses. And, you truly feel like a kid in chocolate factory, surrounded by so much chocolately goodness. Plus, I swear the chocolate you get there is just so, super fresh -I mean they make it right there, no need to wait for it to be delivered to your store. In fact, the entire town smells like a big giant chocolate bar.
We, of course, came home from our most recent visit to Hershey with a few classics to help fuel our holiday bake-a-thon.
Even if you weren’t lucky enough to get your chocolate straight from the factory, I’d be willing to bet you still have some Halloween candy laying around that would be perfect for these candy dessert recipes.
15 Herhsey’s Candy Dessert Recipes to Try This Christmas
Up first, our all time favorite: Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
I’ve been baking these bad boys since I was a little girl myself, and making them with my Dudes is a fun holiday tradition. I’m so, so happy Dude 3 grew out of his peanut allergy!
They are so super easy to make.
Hershey Candy Dessert: Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup butter or Country Crock margarine sticks (use the buttery sticks and you don't have to soften!)
- 2 eggs
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1½ teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 bag Hershey's Chocolate Kisses
- Extra sugar
- Heat oven to 350
- In a large bowl, beat sugars, butters, and eggs.
- Add dry ingredients.
- Roll dough into small balls.
- Roll small balls into extra sugar.
- Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake until they look delicious (about 10 minutes)
- As soon as you take them out of the oven, press a chocolate kiss on top (press it down so it flattens cookie a bit). You want them to get all melty together -yummmmm.
- Let cool only until they aren't scorching and then eat them warm.
