And we can’t wait to break out our tinsel, set up our trees, hang our wreaths and, most importantly, whip up some freshly baked holiday desserts. At HERSHEY’S Kitchens, we’ve created some fun and festive peppermint recipes for you to try this year.
The holidays would not be complete without the ultimate holiday classic: the trifle. We remember growing up with trifles– helping out in the kitchen, carefully smoothing out the decadent layers and then digging in: each bite a surprise. There are luscious pudding layers sandwiched between rich red velvet cake and HERSHEY’S KISSES Milk Chocolates, all topped with a light-as-air whipped topping and some HERSHEY’S KISSES Candy Cane Mint Candies.
Bark is a great recipe around the holidays because it can be prepared well in advance of the holidays if stored properly. Plus it looks uber festive with the white bar topped with peppermint candies.
These little morsels are fabulously festive and rich in flavor. They are great for holiday get-togethers and also work well as gifts. Bake these the night before to ensure they dry properly before plating or wrapping.
Who says S’mores is only for the summer? These flavors work extremely well all year round, especially when baked into a cookie and topped with crushed candy canes.
These cupcakes are a marvel. Not only do they have a great pop of red and white holiday coloring but they’re also a cinch to make. And hiding a HERSHEY’S KISSES Candy Cane Mint Candy in the frosting of each one will surprise and delight all your festive guests.
