Hershey Kiss Christmas Trees

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 0 mins

A fun no-bake project. Create Christmas trees using kisses and peanut butter cups.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup corn syrup
  • 12 green foil-wrapped Hershey chocolate kisses (don't unwrap)
  • 24 miniature peanut butter cups (buy holiday colors, green red, gold, don't unwrap)
  • 14 cup multi-color non-pareils


  1. Brush a small amount of corn syrup on the top of a gold or red-foil peanut butter cup (don't unwrap). Place an inverted (top side down) green-foil peanut butter cup on top of the first one. The bottom peanut butter cup is the pot/planter and the top peanut butter cup is the bottom/base the tree.
  2. Brush some corn syrup on top of the tree base. Top with a green-foil hershey kiss.
  3. Brush corn syrup on the tree and sprinkle non-pareils over the tree.
  4. You could use a spray glue or hot glue instead of corn syrup, but I use corn syrup just in case it gets into someone's mouth when the tree is unwrapped and eaten.

These are adorable. Wouldn't they make a nice treat to pass out in the classroom? Or to put one at each Christmas Eve or Christmas dinner place setting?
