Heavenly Holidays Start With Chocolate

Heavenly Holidays Start With Chocolate - Hershey's Chocolate Kisses

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Do you have any holiday traditions in your house? No matter what holiday it is, from Thanksgiving and Christmas to Valentine’s Day and Easter, Hershey’s Kisses are a staple ingredient of holiday prep for me. I always have a candy dish full of Hershey’s Kisses themed for the relevant holiday and I usually use them to make cookies or desserts, too!

Christmas is a huge holiday, even though the kids are getting older and don’t get sucked up in the magic of making holiday cookies or decorating very much anymore. Still, every year I like to find cute little treats to make for my kids (and my nieces and nephews) that will bring a smile of delight to their faces…. [read more]

Luckily, there are plenty of ways to have a health summer barbecue.

Another dessert that I love to indulge in when I am in Florida is Banana pudding with Nilla Wafers. I am not sure what it is that makes the banana pudding so good when I am visiting the Gulf Coast area, but it is a favorite of the whole family…. [read more]
