Hershey’s Kisses are truly a chocolate classic. While they carry their own very particular look, taste, flavor and familiarity, they have also been used time and time again as a recipe ingredient. Why the heck not? They’re basically just giant chocolate chips, right? In more recent years, the Hershey brand has taken the classic kiss and made umpteen flavors of them from pumpkin spice to candy cane, cookies ‘n cream and caramel filled (and a whole lot in-between) giving truly endless possibilities for baking with them. These recipes all use Hershey’s Kisses in them, and wouldn’t be the same without them. So go grab a bag at the store, and get unwrapping your latest and greatest baked up delight.
Pink strawberry bites of delight, and you’ll never believe what’s in the batter! Easy to make and for only a few dollars in supplies, these will definitely satisfy your strawberry chocolate cravings.

By using pre-made pie shell dough, and making cute pinched mini-pies filled with whatever type of kiss you choose (mint were used in this recipe!), you can create party friendly handheld dessert, that’s NOT a cookie.

Drop a kiss in the bottom of the cupcake liner, before pouring the batter, and you’re left with a yummy surprise kiss at the center of your cupcake! Surprise kisses are the best kisses.

Served hot, right out of the pan. Skillet cookies are easy to prepare, bake in such a way to leave a soft center with an extra crisp outside. Toss some kisses in there, and finish off with some ice cream for the most decadent of desserts.

These adorable little donut bears, are none of the baking, and just a little bit of the assembling – but still creating one heck of a cute little dessert, especially for kids. With a Hershey’s kiss creating the base of the nose, these will be a chocolate on chocolate on chocolate win.

A kiss tucked away and baked inside the dough for a delightful surprise at the center of each. They aren’t your typical shortbread cookie. With a buttery texture, chopped walnuts and dusted in icing sugar, the kisses are perfectly complimented.
