I’m super excited about this post, because I’ve teamed up with some other fantastic bloggers to bring you festive ideas using Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups to get your holiday planning started off right!  If you’re looking for some great ideas for holiday entertaining, these gals have you covered:

I’ll admit it: I’m not that mom who spends hours working on craft projects with Doodle. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s mainly that crafting and I don’t work well together. I don’t have that “crafting” gene and it’s unlikely at this point in my life that it’s going to make an appearance.

But creating a cute little red, white and green tree made with Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates is something even I can handle.

Bonus? Doodle thought I was super cool when we put these little trees together.

{on a side note: our trees have already been eaten, so if you have little kids around who might ask say a million times if they can just have one Kiss off of the tree…you might want to wait just a bit closer to the holidays to assemble these}

All you need for this quick and easy project are some cone-shaped pieces of foam – I got mine at Michael’s in both the 6-inch and 9-inch sizes.

I used approximately three bags of Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates for the 9-inch tree and two bags for the 6-inch tree.  I snapped toothpicks in half, and inserted each half into the bottom of a Kiss.  These were a little difficult to press in, so I had my husband poke tiny holes with a super small screwdriver (cleaned first, of course) to get things started.

Once the picks were inserted into the candies, I let Doodle go to town sticking them into the foam.  We used a decorative cupcake pic we found at my local cake supply store for the tree topper, but I think you could easily find something similar at your favorite craft store (Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, etc.).

What’s your favorite way to use Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates in your holiday baking?  Or do you prefer to eat them plain?  I like to taste test ’em while I’m working. 😉

    Ashley, I’ve made these for years. I use double sided tape instead of toothpicks to attach the kisses to the tree because I worry about children ingesting the toothpick halves. I may just be too much of a worrier. Sometimes I just make a little roll (sticky side out) of regular Scotch tape for the bottom of each kiss and use that to attach. They are adorable!!

    The tree is so cute made out of Kisses! Thanks for posting! I like to use a few Kisses around the base of a taper candle like a decorative “ring” by placing them in the candle holder point side down around the base of the candle. Then we eat them after Christmas! 😉

    Oh my god, Ashley! This tree idea is INSANELY cool! I’m in love! What a unique way to serve up kisses and to make a fun craft. I, too, am horribly un-crafty but these look easy and so fun! I bet it was hard for Doodle to resist snatching all those kisses off the tree!! 🙂

      Oh Hayley, you have more craftiness in your little finger than I do in my whole body! And yeah, it was hard for ME not to snatch some of these off the tree, too. Oops?

    I am totally loving these!! And yes – I have kids that would be begging to eat them, so I’d probably have to hide them! 🙂

    Did anyone else have any problems with the kisses falling off the toothpicks? I came up with the craft for my daughter’s 2nd grade class to make for a nursing home but the kisses keep falling off with just the toothpicks. I don’t want to use glue so they can eat the kisses off the trees.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
