Make Valentine’s Day Sweeter with Hershey’s (giveaway ends 2/5/14)



Everyone deserves a little something special on Valentine’s Day, even if you don’t have a significant other in your life.

I like to give a little something to my children to let them know that I love them on Valentine’s Day. Either I give them a goofy card or a candy heart.

My kids also like to give their friends something too (mostly my daughter – my son is too shy to give things to his friends that are girls). Since both of my kids are teenagers, Valentine’s Day cards are out of the question. That was so middle school (LOL). Even though they don’t give out cards anymore my daughter still likes to give something to her friends (both boys and girls). She currently doesn’t have a boyfriend (she “friend zones” every boy that likes her. Sigh…).

I love that Hershey’s makes individually wrapped candies especially for Valentine’s Day that have places on them where you can write “to” and “from”. They are perfect for giving out to classmates or attaching to Valentine’s Day cards. Hershey’s has even gone so far as to make the products in the shape of a heart too. Two examples would be their REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups and Twizzlers.


Reeces Peanut Butter Cups

These are great for handing out to classmates (and co-workers).

Jolly Ranchers are also made into heart shapes for the holiday. As you can tell my kids have already started to help themselves to the Jolly Ranchers (my husband too!). They are a popular candy with my family.

Jolly Ranchers

I also love how they dress up their products in Valentine’s Day colors (red, pink…) like Rolo’s and Kisses. They are two products that really can’t be made heart shaped for the holiday, but at least they can get “dressed up” in holiday colors.

Kisses and Rolos

Speaking of Hershey’s Kisses I LOVE! LOVE! LOVE the new Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates Rose Cane. It’s a clear plastic cylinder filled with Hershey’s Kisses and topped with a plastic rose. I love this idea! This would be a sweet gift idea for young lovers, as well as old married folk like me. I think this would look super cute in a vase with a few other Rose Canes too.

Hersheys Rose Cane

My daughter wanted to make a cake and use some of the Hershey’s products. The one she really wanted to use was the solid milk chocolate heart.

Using a heart shaped pan (a review for that will be posted soon) she created a Valentine’s Day cake topped with a Hershey’s solid milk chocolate heart and Jolly Rancher Valentine’s Day gummy hearts.

She should have removed the wrapper from the chocolate heart. Oh well. I still think she did a great job.

Hershey's Valentines Cake

If you need some Valentine’s Day inspiration check out the Celebrate with Hershey’s website, www.CelebratewithHersheys.com. There you can find some truly delectable holiday recipes including these heart brownies which look SO GOOD! They are made with Hershey’s REESE’S Peanut Butter Chips and topped with an unwrapped  REESE’S Peanut Butter Filled Hearts.

Brownie Heart


The Cherry White Chip Brownies look good too.

Not only is the site stuffed with mouth-watering recipes, you can also find plenty of great seasonal/holiday related craft ideas. I make it a point to check the site often, especially around the major holidays, to see what new craft ideas they have come up with.

For Valentines Day there are several great gift ideas, from the romantic to special Valentine’s Day treats for a crowd.


Date Night

Valentine Heart

Rose Kisses

My favorite has always been the Hershey’s Kiss Roses (pictured above). I tried to make them once many years ago but goofed up. This was before the instructions were readily available. I plan on making them again some day. They are so pretty!

They would make great party and wedding favors too.

Easter is not that far away. Celebrate with Hershey’s already has some great Easter ideas for your consideration.




I keep the site bookmarked on my computer. It’s not only a great resource for recipes and crafts (including how-to videos), its also a great way to stay up to date on new Hershey’s products.

Hershey’s has generously offered to give a lucky reader an assortment of holiday candy. Thank you Hershey’s!

This giveaway is open to US residents only and will end on February 5, 2014 at 11:59 PM (EST) to make sure the candy arrives in time for the holiday. The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via e-mail and will have three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen in their place.
