Ingredients & Directions


  • 1 lb. 14 oz.
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 lb. 2 oz.
    quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 2 lbs.
    light brown sugar
  • 4 tsp.

    HERSHEY'S MINI KISSES Milk Chocolates (Item# 14625)



Heat convection oven to 300°F (standard oven: 350°F). Lightly spray one 18x26-inch full sheet pan with vegetable cooking spray. Place parchment paper on prepared sheet pan.


Combine together flour, oats, brown sugar and baking powder in large bowl. Using your fingers, a fork or a pastry cutter, work the butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Remove 2 lbs. 4 oz. (8 cups) crumb mixture. Set aside.


Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Stir preserves or jam to soften; carefully spread over crumb mixture. Sprinkle HERSHEY'S MINI KISSES Milk Chocolates evenly over preserves or jam. Cover with reserved crumbs; press firmly.


Bake 35 to 45 minutes* until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into 2x3-inch bars.


*If using convection oven, rotate pan one-half turn (180°) after 20 minutes of baking.
