Easter Basket Fun With Hershey’s

(Disclosure: Hershey’s sent me an Easter basket but all thoughts are my own.)

What’s an Easter basket without a little chocolate? Hershey’s recently invited me to hop the “Virtual Bunny Trail” and create an Easter basket for myself. Since the Easter Bunny doesn’t bring Mommy a basket anymore I was more than happy to do this.

Once I had chosen my basket color and the color of the Easter grass it was time to choose the chocolate I’d put in it. I love chocolate! My very favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter cups so I was excited to see one of my choices was a large Reese’s Egg that was about the size of my hand. I also chose a Cadbury rabbit, Reese’s bunnies, Cookies n’ Cream eggs, and a snap-apart chocolate bunny.

I was excited to eat all this candy but, literally as I type this, the boys and their daddy are at the kitchen table eating my chocolate! Sinisa bit the ears off the Cadbury bunny, Jake is trying to open the snap-apart bunny, and Luke is peeling the wrapper off of a Cookies n’ Cream egg. Thankfully I have the Reese’s Egg by me or that might have been gobbled down, too!

What Hershey’s products would you put in your Easter basket?

Hershey’s Holiday Candy {Prize Pack Giveaway}

Every Christmas morning when I was a child we’d go downstairs and the first thing we’d do was open our stockings to see what kind of chocolates Santa had left. I was always hoping that my stocking would be filled with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups because they are my favorite candy. I also found a lot of Hershey’s Kisses candies in my stocking. I enjoyed eating many of my chocolates while I waited for my dad to cook breakfast.

This year Hershey’s has a new product that I’m hoping “Santa” will put in my stocking. It’s called the Snap-Apart Snowman and it breaks apart into four neat pieces so it’s easy to eat {and share if you want}.

I also love the big Hershey’s kiss that looks like a Santa hat. Those big ones are always fun to put in my love’s stocking :)
