About The Hershey Company
"The Hershey Company (NYSE: HSY) is the largest producer of quality chocolate in North America and a global leader in chocolate and sugar confectionery. Headquartered in Hershey, Pa., The Hershey Company has operations throughout the world and more than 12,000 employees. With revenues of more than $5 billion, Hershey offers such iconic brands as Hershey’s, Reese’s, Hershey’s Kisses, Kit Kat, Twizzlers and Ice Breakers as well as the smooth, creamy indulgence of Hershey’s Bliss chocolates. Hershey is a leader in the fast-growing dark and premium chocolate segment, with such brands as Hershey’s Special Dark and Hershey’s Extra Dark. In addition, Artisan Confections Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Hershey Company, markets such premium chocolate offerings as Scharffen Berger and Dagoba. For more than 100 years, The Hershey Company has been a leader in making a positive difference in the communities where we live, work and do business. The Milton Hershey School, established by the company’s founder in 1909, provides a nurturing environment, quality education, housing, and medical care at no cost to children in social and financial need. The School is administered by the Hershey Trust Company, Hershey’s largest shareholder, making the students of Milton Hershey School direct beneficiaries of Hershey’s success.Meeting Under the Mistletoe?
This December there’s no need to catch someone under the Mistletoe; The Hershey Company makes it easy to celebrate the season with a kiss. Hershey’s Kisses Brand Chocolates are available in a variety of flavors including Milk Chocolate, Milk Chocolate with Almonds, Mint Truffle, Caramel, Special Dark Mildly Sweet Chocolate, Cherry Cordial Crème and Candy Cane Mint. Each variety comes wrapped in festive colored foils, making them the perfect treat for both Holiday baking and decorating."


This is one of our favorite ways to use Hershey's kisses:
Ingredients:
48 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup REESE'S Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Granulated sugar
Directions:1. Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates. 2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. 3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet. 4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.

Here Comes Santa Claus
"Slip on the Santa suit and supply holiday cheer to family and friends with new Hershey candies that will have everyone saying “Ho, ho, ho.” More than 150 million chocolate Santas will be made for the winter holiday season;* try Hershey’s sweet twist on this holiday favorite with new Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Crème Santas. Also new is the 1.45 oz Seasonal Hershey’s Kisses Brand Solid Milk Chocolate Santa Hat. And no good Santa can deliver presents without Vixen and Blitzen – the new Rolo Reindeer Cane is the perfect stocking stuffer from any Jolly Old Saint Nick."
