Candy Cane Hershey’s Kisses

Red and white stripes are a Christmas icon, and these candy cane-flavored treats are the perfect way to celebrate. A warning: once you start with these, you may not be able to quit. As refreshing as an after-dinner mint, these little guys have tiny bits of crunchy peppermint candy sprinkled throughout. Enjoy them as a stand-alone bite or as the hat on top of a festive cookie.

Mint Truffle Hershey’s Kisses

There’s no better dessert combination than mint and dark chocolate, and these aptly named Kisses don’t disappoint. These Kisses are soft and creamy, with the consistency of a truffle. Enjoy them all on their own or cut them up to enjoy over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Instant minty goodness.
