Cookie exchange parties have become a holiday tradition and this year Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates is the party-planning partner for this seasonal ritual. In addition to sponsoring 1,000 cookie exchange parties, Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates has created www.kissescookies.com, a one-stop-shop for holiday baking and party planning. The site is full of cookie recipes and exchange tips from Hershey’s® Kitchens and invites visitors to interact and share their favorite holiday recipes, party tips, photos and stories with each other.

Holiday bakers and entertainers chosen to host one of 1,000 Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates Cookie Exchanges will receive an event party pack complete with all the necessary ingredients to throw the ultimate cookie exchange. The sweet party packs will include: three bags of Hershey’s Kisses Brand Milk Chocolates and a free coupon for Pillsbury® Peanut Butter Cookie Dough to create easy-to-bake Peanut Butter Blossom cookies. Also included is a Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates 2010 calendar, a Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates cookie jar for the host and new and classic recipe cards for guests to create their very own Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates recipe book.

SIMPLE TIPS FOR SWEET SUCCESS

Check out these great tips for a successfully sweet holiday party:

• Invite guests at least two weeks in advance and ask all guests to RSVP with the cookie recipe they plan to bring to the party.

• Give suggestions or include a unique recipe on every invitation in case guests don’t have a favorite recipe they would like to share. Ask invitees to bring printed recipe copies, a plastic container for taking home treats and a half-dozen or one-dozen cookies for each attendee, depending on the number of guests.

• Return the favor by turning the cookie exchange into a gifting party – provide gift tags, gift bags and ribbons, and invite guests to assemble cookie gifts for co-workers, neighbors, teachers and friends.

Peanut Butter Blossoms

FRESH FROM THE OVEN

Celebrating the holidays with baked treats wouldn’t be complete without one-of-a-kind Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates.
