The only thing better than a milk chocolate dessert is a sweet-and-salty milk chocolate dessert.  HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate surrounds buttery crackers, which are then topped with salty peanuts and an extra chocolate pip. You’ll want to assemble these treats ahead of time so they can chill and harden before serving.

6. Easy HERSHEY’S Bar Pie

Your family might have a recipe for chocolate cream pie using HERSHEY’S Cocoa. But did you know you can also make it with a HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bar? Simply fold melted chocolate into whipped topping from your freezer. The result is a mousse-like filling with an airy texture and a lighter, more straightforward milk chocolate taste. This pie is so good, no one will believe it only took 10 minutes!


7. Our Gal Sundae Pie

A homemade macaroon-nut crust with a heavenly chocolate filling, this pie has flavors reminiscent of a classic ice cream sundae. Top it with whipped cream, cherries and HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bar pieces for a delicious walk down memory lane. Unlike a no-bake cream pie, this pie uses a from-scratch custard that bakes in the shell. So set aside a little more time for this show-stopping dessert.
