Expert Tips

  • Use 2 different-sized cookie scoops to make portioning cookie dough even faster and more consistent.
  • Making and baking snowmen in batches of 6 gives time to complete the decorating process easily.
  • Place HERSHEY’S® Kisses® brand milk chocolates on top of snowman, and let melt into cookie. Make sure candy is attached before moving snowman! If not, let cool a few minutes longer.
  • If desired, use Mini M&M's™ chocolate candies instead of red cinnamon candies. Or make some of each!
