Shop Until You Drop



It’s TWO posts for me today!  Why?  Well my regular daily post of course AND this one which is tons of fun – it’s Bacon and Fozziemum’s SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD day.   Fun because we all post prices for ingredients of something every month so we can see how much stuff costs all around the world and at the same time we get ideas on some yummy recipes to try out.

This month’s challenge was suggested by – GUESS WHO – that’s right – ME!   I thought maybe it would be fun to do ingredients for a holiday cookie or treat that we have this time of the year in our houses to help celebrate the festive season.

My Mom found this recipe online the other day and gave it a whirl and it’s DELISH so we’re sharing it along with the prices of the ingredients!

CHOCOLATE KISS POWDER PUFF COOKIES (totally easy peasy recipe!)

1 bag Hersheys Chocolate Kisses (Mom likes the DARK chocolate but any one will do and even peanut butter cups work!)

POWDERPUFFCHOC1 12 oz. bag $4.49

1 pre-made pie crust (or you can make your own of course!)

POWDERPUFFCHOC3Pillsbury (2) pie crusts, 14 oz. $3.69

Confectioner’s Sugar


Cut out squares in your pie crust dough (or circles work too) and place one Hershey’s chocolate kiss in the center of the dough.  Seal edges to make a “mound”.    Place cookies on a greased baking sheet and pop in a 350 degree oven for 15-17 minutes.    Allow to cool then dredge in powdered sugar.    My Mom is a chocoholic so these are something she LOVES and best of all they are EASY PEASY.

The holidays are a good time to try out new recipes for something tasty – this treat is worth a try – I can’t have chocolate of course but my Mom can and she says these are YUMMY.

Happy Eating! 

Hugs, Chef Sammy

    Sounds very good! Love Hershey’s Kisses and we have been known to bake just a pie crust and put some butter, sugar, and cinnamon on it… just a little treat!

      HA! You’re the only other person we know who does that pie crust cookie thing – my Mom does that too!!!! When she actually IS making a pie, all the scraps get turned into what HER Mom (who used to give her scraps to my Mom as a little girl to make into “things” to bake) would call “DOUGHIES”…………My Mom STILL makes them and sprinkles sugar and cinnamon on… she’ll add some buttah too…….THANKS…….and thanks for confessing to this because Mom has always thought she was just WEIRD to like “doughies” !!!

      Love, Sammy
