Last Minute Thanksgiving Dessert

I have the perfect fast, easy Thanksgiving treat that will wow your guests-
Chocolate Kiss Pumpkin Treats.
Here is what you need...
2 boxes Athens mini fillo shells (sold in the freezer section)
1 bag of Hershey's chocolate kisses
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup thawed Cool Whip
2 cups prepared vanilla pudding
 1/4 cup brown sugar
chopped pecans (optional)

On a cookie sheet, bake fillo shells for 3-5 minutes at 350 until browned on the edges. Remove from oven and allow to cool for another 5 minutes or so. Meanwhile, mix the pumpkin, Cool Whip, pudding, and brown sugar together in a bowl. When shells are cooled, spoon a small amount into each shell. Gently push chocolate kiss down in the middle. (I have also added pecans - your choice!) And they are ready to go!
Or...I have also done it like this...
...and put the kisses in the empty shell while the shells were still warm. The kiss softened a lot but did not melt. I then topped it with the pumpkin mixture. The chocolate in the bottom was then a surprise when you bit into it! Either way they are a simple twist on the traditional pumpkin pie. An easy go-to recipe when you're the one taking the dessert to dinner or if you just need a little treat while you're watching football or the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Enjoy!
