1. Espresso-Filled Mini Cakes

Espresso-Filled Mini Cakes

Mmmm. Rich chocolate cake sandwiches an espresso cream filling, then gets topped with a cocoa glaze. The result is a coffee lover’s dream dessert. You can also adapt this recipe to other fillings, like apricot preserves. Either way, everyone will want a whole cake to themselves, and with this recipe they can — they’re mini!


2. Peanut Butter Cup Mini Cupcakes

Peanut Butter Cup Mini Cupcakes

These mini cupcakes are like a mouthful of heaven. Each one is frosted with a light and airy REESE'S Peanut Butter Creme Frosting — which hides the REESE'S Peanut Butter Cup Miniature in the middle! Top them with another for next-level chocolate peanut butter fun.


3. Rich ’n Good Chocolate Truffles

Rich ’n Good Chocolate Truffles

Truffles are perfect for sharing. But these rich chocolate truffles are so good, it’ll be hard not to keep ’em all for yourself. This classic French recipe calls for cocoa powder or crushed nuts to keep the delicate ganache center from melting. Try mixing up your serving tray with variations like sprinkles, matcha powder and even crushed candy!


4. Tiny MINI KISSES Peanut Butter Blossoms

Tiny MINI KISSES Peanut Butter Blossoms

OMG, so cute! We thought we'd seen every variation on the classic peanut butter blossom. But these bite-sized blossoms blow the competition away. Roll your tiny balls of cookie dough in granulated sugar for added texture and sparkle. Then top them with HERSHEY’S MINI KISSES Milk Chocolates.


5. Meltaway Brownie Bites

Meltaway Brownie Bites

This recipe is perfect for passing around a holiday party! A melt-in-your-mouth brownie batter is baked into a mini cupcake shape. Then it gets topped with a single HERSHEY’S KISSES Milk Chocolate Candy or HERSHEY’S HUGS Milk Chocolate in White Creme. Dust them with confectioners sugar for some added winter wonder.


6. Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes

Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes

Your guests’ eyes will be as big as dinner plates when they see these mini cheesecakes! Smooth chocolate cheesecake is baked into a chocolate crumb crust then topped with homemade chocolate glaze. And you can enjoy it all without a fork and knife.
