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.

Click here to sign up for a year of free recipes via email from Hershey's! I signed up.

Also, click here for free Hershey recipes that will print as cards.

For the rest of the week I'll post a Hershey's recipe to celebrate!

Here's the first, courtesy of Hershey:

• 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.


  1. I love Hershey's Kisses! I've been eating them forever!! I also signed up! :)

  2. I signed up too! You know me and chocolate. Thanks Cheryl!

  3. I signed up too, Remember I am the one who didn't like chocolate I hate to tell people that but I am not sure what has happened but now I love it and cannot get enough of it. I was wondering about the picture on your blog page can you give me the recipe I know I have it but can't find it right now. I just bought the Hershey Kisses today to make them but can't find the recipe. Thanks for the help.

  4. Uh oh. Am I a bad influence?

    Will post the recipe for you now.

  5. No Cheryl you are a get influence I love all the recipes you have shared with us. They are so great to eat. I have to tell you the lemon bars were great I just cut them up for the family still a little warm but very hummy.
