XOXO, I “Heart” Hershey’s Kisses!

XOXO, I “Heart” Hershey’s Kisses!

Hershey’s Kisses have always been the go-to treat for satisfying a chocolate craving.  Even for my 2-year-old son (who cutely calls them “Specials” because they are, well, special treats for him) defaults to Hershey Kisses when he wants a piece of chocolate. I’ve always loved making Peanut Butter Blossoms withHershey Kisses during the holidays and was wondering today what other yummy recipes are out there that showcase kisses?  I surfed.

Simple Wedding Idea: Dessert Reception and Coffee Bar

I was at a wedding about 8 years ago and the reception fare featured several coffee bars and dessert tables.  This was a new concept back then, when all of us were agonizing over $50 or more per-head on fancy chicken and potatoes dinners for our 250 guests – where was this simple idea back then? According to Wedding101.net, dessert receptions and coffee bars are a wedding trend to watch.
