“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
I’m a sucker for anything hazelnut flavored, and especially when it involves chocolate. When I first saw the advertisement for the Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe with a whole roasted hazelnut center, I swooned. My mom craved Hershey’s Chocolate Bars with Almonds when she was pregnant with me, and I’ve always blamed that for my affinity to the candy. I didn’t think chocolate could get much better than that until I tried the new Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe. I’ve always made the thumbprint type holiday cookies topped with Hershey’s KISSES, and this inspired me to make a deluxe version for those important to me. These Hazelnut Kiss Cookies are a delicious way to show someone how much you care #SayMore.
It hard to elaborate how much the addition of the Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe changes the flavor of this traditional holiday cookie. I added hazelnut flavoring to the cookie bases for an additional bite of hazelnut flavor.
The new Hershey’s KISSES Deluxe are nearly twice the size of traditional Hershey’s KISSES Chocolates.
The chocolates are perfectly tasty to be eaten plain, but they’re so decadent on a cookie. These cookies are perfect for when you want to bake something for someone special.
