Happy Birthday Hershey's Kisses!
Hoosters! We almost missed another important holiday! Hersheys is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its iconic chocolate Kisses. Kisses are made at the Pennsylvania factory in much the same way as they have since 1907. Today, the chocolates that were hand-wrapped in the early years are now wrapped by machine at about 1,300 Kisses a minute. The paper strip to open the Kiss is called a plume.

For the rest of the week I'll post a Hershey's recipe to celebrate!
Here's the first, courtesy of Hershey:
HERSHEY'S HUGS & KISSES Crescents
• 1 package (8 oz.) refrigerated quick crescent dinner rolls
• 24 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates or HERSHEY'S HUGS Brand Chocolates
• Powdered sugar
1. Heat oven to 375 F. Separate dough into 8 triangles. Remove wrappers from chocolates.
2. Place 2 chocolates at wide end of each triangle; place an additional chocolate on top of other two pieces. Starting at wide end, roll to opposite point; pinch edges to seal. Place rolls, pointed side down, on ungreased cookie sheet. Curve into crescent shape.
3. Bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; sift with powdered sugar. Serve warm. 8 crescents.
Note: Leftover crescents can be reheated in microwave for a few seconds.
