Adding a Little Hershey’s to My Baking (giveaway & recipe)

Posted on

You can’t do any baking without the help of Hershey’s…from chocolate chip cookies to swiss mousse cake using Hershey’s cocoa, I always keep several of their products handy in my kitchen.  To get you in the baking

First up, let get to the recipe.

No-Bake Chocolate Cake Roll

Combine one four-serving sized package of vanilla instant pudding mix and two tablespoons of Hershey’s Cocoa in a small bowl. Add one cup of milk and beat on low speed until smooth and thickened. Fold in one cup of thawed whipped topping, blending well. Spread one tablespoon of pudding mixture onto each chocolate wafer in a nine-ounce package, and place wafers together in stacks of four or five. On foil, stand wafers on edge to make one long roll. Wrap tightly and refrigerate five-to-six hours.  Sift one tablespoon of Hershey’s Cocoa over 2-1/2 cups of thawed whipped topping, and blend well. Unwrap the refrigerated chocolate wafer roll and place it on a serving tray. Spread whipped topping mixture over the entire roll. Remove wrappers from Hershey’s Hugs Chocolates and Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates and place on the roll to garnish. To serve, slice diagonally at a 45-degree angle. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.

    My baking tip is don’t bake when you are hungry. Odds are half of what you bake will be gone as soon as it comes out of the oven!!

    My tip is to use a kitchen towel when making any kind of roll cake. it is easy to roll up and easy to clean off.

    My tip is to let the kids help- from the time they can sit up I start them with a bowl of ice and wooden spoon and as they learn more they can do more advanced things.
    They will (hopefully) learn valuable skills and the time is very well spent as you get precious memories that last for a lifetime- theirs and yours.

    When you need to soften sticks of butter, NEVER microwave them. The batter ends up too runny, so you add extra flour and all the taste is gone. Set the butter out an hour or two before you need it.

    I like to have all my ingredients measured out before I start baking. It makes things go much faster.

    Don’t open the oven door while baking because everytime you do the temp goes down 50 degrees

    When buttering a pan for baking, put the buttered pan in the oven until the butter melts before pouring the batter. This helps the batter not stick to the pan. Please count me in and thanks for the contest!

    To keep brown sugar soft for baking, I always keep part of an apple in the jar with the sugar.

    I learned at a young age (only because I didn’t know exactly) that a dash or pinch is considered to be less than 1/8 of a teaspoon.
    Also, my favorite thing to make is cheesecake. Always- cook your cheesecake in a water bath to prevent cracking!

    My baking tip is to keep brown sugar soft, just put a slice of bread with the sugar.

    I liked to use a slice of bread in the cookie bar to keep the cookies soft….. But i also think it is important to cook with your kids it makes it more fun

    I’m a firm believer in using nothing but “Hershey” brand chocolates and “Gold Medal” flour when baking! .. The cheap brands just don’t cut it when it comes to a good finished product!

    My favorite baking tip that I ever read was to add 1/2 tsp lemon juice to your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. The acid helps to activate the baking soda, producing a softer, chewier cookie.

    Keep your nuts in the freezer until ready to use for fresher nuts.

    I use the wrapper from butter / margerine to grease my baking sheets

    Hows this one: “Don’t leave your daughter’s homework on the stove.”

    You may accidentally burn it and have to call the teacher and explain that you burnt her “big project.”

    Important tip!

    My favorite baking tip is to keep the kids out of the kitchen while mom is baking.

    When using peanut butter in a recipe, I lightly spray the measuring cup with cooking spray before measuring. The pb comes out so much easier and the cleanup is a lot less messy.

    Always toss a slice of bread in your cookie storage device (for me, it is usually a plastic bag) to keep your cookies soft for days and days and days!

    When baking cupcakes I use the silicon cups instead of papercups.

    To help yeast dough rise in a draft-free place, put it in a cold oven and turn on the oven light. The bulb produces just enough heat to produce the warmth the dough needs.

    For the BEST chocolate chip cookies, I grate a Hershey bar into the batter. It adds even more chocolaty goodness and I get millions of compliments every time.

    Thanks for the chance to enter!

    I often use parchment to cool my cookies on instead of racks. Talk about easy cleanup!

    throw baking trays in the fridge after use so you don’t have to wait another 20 mins to throw the next batch in the oven!

    Always put your baking dish in the middle of the oven while baking.
