This year I have no big class party to plan so we’re going to be scaling back on the number of treats we make. This year I want to be simple and kind and send sweet treats to those people who are a part of our life every day. My kids love cooking and baking with me and they love anything they can help with. Cookies and easy and fun recipes for kids to start with. This year Hershey’s sent us a big box of goodies to share the love.
This year, Hershey’s partnered with students from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco to design new packaging for the Hershey’s Pot of Gold Collections. They’d make great gifts for teachers and friends this year!
And don’t forget to try out Hershey’s classic favorites too!
