Make Thanksgiving your own with these Friendsgiving recipes.

Thanksgiving has always been about generosity of spirit: joining together around a table and breaking bread … or pie. And while we love that holiday, “Friendsgiving” has a very special place in our heart. After all, it gives us a reason to bring our favorite Thanksgiving recipes to life twice a year!

We’ve gathered our five favorite Friendsgiving desserts here:

1. Peanutty Cranberry Bars

Peanutty Cranberry Bars

Cranberries are a star of Thanksgiving dinner — and they wanted to make an appearance in dessert, too! Try the savory, sweet and tart combo of these crumb bars. The “peanutty” in the name comes from REESE’S Peanut Butter Chips. Slice them into squares and start a debate at the table about the best side dishes. 

What You’ll Need:

  • REESE’S Peanut Butter Chips


2. Mini Chocolate Pies

Mini Chocolate Pies

Friendsgiving calls for personal pies! Simply make pudding pie mix according to the package and stir in chocolate chips. Then dole them out into mini graham cracker crusts and top with whipped cream and more chocolate chips, of course. The result is a perfectly shareable dessert that requires virtually no cleanup.

What You’ll Need:

  • HERSHEY’S Mini Chips Semi-Sweet Chocolate


3. Fresh Apple and Toffee Tart

Fresh Apple and Toffee Tart

This impressive-looking tart takes less than an hour from start to finish. Crisp autumn apples and buttery toffee bits are nestled in a crispy spiraled crust. The result is a gorgeous celebration of the season’s favorite fruit! Tip: Use store-bought pie crust sheets to keep it simple.

4. HERSHEY’S SPECIAL DARK Truffle Brownie Cheesecake

HERSHEY’S SPECIAL DARK Truffle Brownie Cheesecake

For that friend who chooses chocolate over fruit any day, pull out all the stops with this truffle brownie cheesecake. HERSHEY’S Cocoa lends a velvety richness to the chocolate cheesecake batter. And instead of a crust, it sits on a brownie layer. Yeah, you read that right!

What You’ll Need:

  • HERSHEY’S SPECIAL DARK Mildly Sweet Chocolate Chips


5. MINI KISSES Pumpkin Mousse Cups

MINI KISSES Pumpkin Mousse Cups

We didn’t forget the pumpkin! This shareable take on pumpkin pie will wow everyone at the table. A dreamy pumpkin mousse filling is served in edible chocolate cups, if you can believe it. Brush melted chocolate onto the inside of silicone baking cups and refrigerate until firm. 

What You’ll Need:

  • HERSHEY’S MINI KISSES Milk Chocolate Chips


Start a new tradition with Hershey.
