Hershey's Valentine’s Day Collection Review and Giveaway



Being from Pennsylvania, Hershey is a staple here. Yes I have been lucky enough to visit Hershey PA. Chocolate Town USA is a great place to visit, you can smell the chocolate in the air, it is true and it  is magnificent, something you have to experience.


For my money chocolate doesn't get any better than Hershey’s and once you pair it with Reese’s peanut butter you have the perfect candy ever invented. Whopper’s, Milk Duds, Reese’s, Kit-Kat and Hersey’s bars my candy collection is candy nirvana. I was very fortunate to try out some of Hershey's new holiday goodies:










Along with great candy Hershey had a great website up this year  Celebrate with Hershey’s , the site is filled with decoration idea, party ideas, recipes and more! Here are some of my favorites:






Double KISSES Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe



Ingredients:

  • About 60 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1-2/3 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1-1/3 cups water


Directions:

  • 1. Remove wrappers from chocolate pieces; set aside. Heat oven to 350°F. Line muffin cups (2-1/2 inches in diameter) with paper bake cups.


  • 2. Combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in large bowl. Beat on high speed of mixer 3 minutes. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and baking powder; add alternately with water to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Fill prepared muffin cups about 1/2 full with batter. Place chocolate piece in center of each.


  • 3. Bake 20 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly in center. Remove from cups to wire rack. Cool completely. Frost as desired. Place another chocolate piece on top of each cupcake. About 2-1/2 dozen cupcakes.



Our Take:

In a few weeks Valentine’s Day will be here and I’m sure the bulk of guys out there will be getting their special someone’s chocolate. I’m here to inform you that all you need is Hershey , they've gotcha covered! I love Hershey’s chocolate and I compare every piece of chocolate I eat to Hershey’s chocolate and from my scientific study no one and I mean no one can match Hershey in taste and quality.

If you’re going to give chocolate as a gift make sure it’s good chocolate and when you buy Hershey’s chocolate you’re getting the best so rest assured your Valentine will thank you. And if you’re worried the chocolate won’t look fancy enough don’t worry Hershey has that covered to. You’ll be able to get Valentine’s inspired packaging and heart shaped candy and who wouldn't want a heart shaped Reese’s? 

With so many varieties you’ll be able to find something to satisfy every sweet tooth Reese’s, York Peppermint Patties, Krackel, Mr. Goodbar or you can just go with the classic Hershey’s kiss. You can’t get any more romantic than a kiss, not only is this one romantic but it’s also delicious!



Is your Valentine a  chocolate fan? Well wouldn't they love a Hershey chocolate heart I know I sure would. This Hershey chocolate would also make great gifts for teachers, neighbors and whoever loves chocolate.  These treats are wonderful, make sure to pick some up for the valentine’s day, they will look as a gift or in your candy dish for your holiday party.
