We all love Hershey’s, right? Hershey’s is always at the forefront of my holiday baking, between Hershey’s Kisses in my peanut butter thumbprint cookies to Hershey’s Cocoa Powder in my hot chocolate, my baking cabinet is always piled high with their chocolaty goodness when the holidays roll around. Did you see my No-Bake Hershey’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars Recipe last month? Well, the holiday fun doesn’t end with sweet treats – that’s just the beginning! Angeline and I are both traveling quite a bit this holiday season, and with it just being the two of us in the house now, we aren’t going all-out with the usual Christmas decor. I made this cute little Merry Kisses Holiday Centerpiece for our coffee table to add a little holiday flair to the house, and it was so easy!
You can make the most wonderful time of the year even more wonderful with deliciously fun Hershey’s Kisses chocolates. Everyone’s favorite sweetheart candies are the perfect ingredient to spread holiday cheer and build new memories with your families this holiday season. You can use Hershey’s Kisses chocolates for so many different holiday things; recipes, crafts, DIYs, gift ideas…the possibilities are endless!

Let Kisses chocolates be your other little holiday helper this season by inspiring you and your family to create magical crafts, décor and gifts for everyone on your list! You can give this fun centerpiece as a hostess gift, or even just fill a fun decorative jar with We used Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate chocolates in red, green, and silver foils but you can also use other varieties from The Hershey Company, such as:

Merry Kisses Holiday Centerpiece DIY
You will need:
- One bag of Hershey’s Kisses chocolates
- One Small to Medium Glass Hurricane-style Vase
- Red Glitter Glue
- Green Glitter Glue
- Decorative toppers, sprigs of Pointsetta, etc – have fun with it!
Cut a small piece of Styrofoam to fit inside the vase, as this will be the base that your toppers stick into. You’ll want it to be small enough that the candy will fill in around it so that you don’t see it.
Then it’s time to start filling the vase with Hershey’s Kisses chocolates! You’ll want to fill the vase about halfway before you stick the toppers in.
Add the toppers and make sure that they’re anchored securely into the Styrofoam before adding the rest of the Hershey’s Kisses chocolates.
You’ll want to fill the vase all the way with Hershey’s Kisses and then push the toppers down so that there isn’t any extra space between them.
I think this just came out SO CUTE! You can leave it as it is or go a step farther and start decorating…
We chose to add a little red and green glitter glue to the bottom for a little extra oomph.
It’s best to add one color at a time, allowing the first color to dry for a few minutes before applying the second line, or they’ll bleed together.
What do you think? Will you be using Hershey’s Kisses chocolates in your holiday decorating, or giving someone a super special gift of Hershey’s Kisses this year?
