Hottest Holiday Cookie for Christmas 2010 - Hershey's Easy KISSES Cocoa Cookies!

Please welcome a very special guest here on my TwitterMoms' post, Linda Stahl, Hershey's Baking Expert. This past week, I was able to ask Linda a few questions and Hershey's was nice enough to record her answers so that I could share them with you.

My burning question, 'What is the Hot Holiday Cookie this Christmas?". Linda's answer was 'Easy KISSES Cocoa Cookies'. Now that I have had the chance to try one, I have to agree with Linda. These little cocoa balls stuffed with a Hershey's kiss and coated with white powered sugar are simply heaven for holidays! I swapped out the milk chocolate Kiss for the special dark chocolate and skipped the pecans as my son is allergic. Pick your favorite kiss or better yet, bake an assortment for all your guests to sample! The recipe is simple and the result is a very really special cookie for the Holidays.

Here are my 3 questions - Thanks Linda for answering!

1. What is the most loved Holiday Baking Ingredient 2. What is the Hot Cookie for the holidays this year? 3. What are some tips for keeping all those Christmas Cookies fresh throughout the holidays?
