Deck the halls with boughs of…. chocolate,
If only the song really went that way… Wouldn’t you prefer chocolate over holly, anyways? I know I would. Ha!
But, back to the point, Hershey’s now has holiday-specific chocolate kisses that are just too good to not share! Mint Truffle, Candy Cane, Cherry Cordial. Yum, yum, yum. Take your pick! And the newest addition to the Hershey’s family: Hershey’s Kissmas Kisses! They’re traditional milk chocolate kisses wrapped in festive, Christmas foil. So cute! I just couldn’t pass up the perfect opportunity to create a new chocolate-filled, healthified, Christmas treat!
And that’s when Hershey’s Kissmas Chocolate Blossoms were born! I alternated using Hershey’s milk chocolate Kissmas kisses and Hershey’s dark chocolate kisses. Just because dark chocolate is my favorite.
These little guys are Paleo, gluten free, and free of refined sugar and flour. Yet, they’re so yummy. I bet you won’t be able to stop at just one!
