Hershey's Chocolate Spreads Review, and Giveaway Winner!

It's time for my fourth and final Hershey's post!  By now, you're all aware that I was asked to take on the heavy task of sampling, reviewing, and baking with Hershey's newest addition to their product line, their chocolate spreads.  It was an intense process, but I was up to the task.  I mean, someone has to take one for the team, right?  Lots of time and energy was spent tasting all three varieties of chocolate spread, both on their own, and then with a wide variety of snacks, and then even more time was spent conjuring up the perfect recipe in which to feature one of the spreads.  Let's take a look back at these posts, shall we?

It all started just before Christmas, when I received my package of chocolate spreads in the mail.  I was planning my cookie week for the blog, in which I featured a new cookie recipe every day, and I got the urge to use the Chocolate Almond spread as a quick last minute enhancement for my Oatmeal Lace Cookies.  I loved how they turned out!

Once those cookies were made, I became curious about other delicious ways I could use the spreads.  I wanted to know what different flavor possibilities I could use the Hershey's spreads in whenever I wanted a quick, fuss-free snack.  I think I came up with some great, yummy pairings, and my favorite pairings were definitely the potato chip/ plain chocolate spread combination and chocolate-almond spread drizzled over vanilla ice cream.

The last post was definitely the hardest though.  I really just had no idea what I wanted to use the Hershey's spread for, basically because I had way too many ideas.  Narrowing them down was tough, but after a little while and a lot of thinking, I finally settled on these Chocolate Coconut Almond Revel Bars, and what a fantastic decision that was.  These cookie bars were rich and fudgey, and over-the-top indulgent in every way.  I used Hershey's chocolate almond spread, my favorite of the three, to create a gooey fudge layer that was nestled in between two layers of coconut almond cookie.  Just thinking about these bars is making want to bake up another batch!

And now, it's time to announce the winner of the Hershey's Chocolate Spreads giveaway! One of you lucky readers just won a kit containing all three flavors of Hershey's chocolate spreads along with yummy snacks to enjoy with them.  That's some exciting stuff!  Without further ado, congratulations to Dawn Keenan, you just won some chocolate!  You've been notified!

And that wraps this up!  Big thanks to the Hershey's and Cake Group teams for giving me this awesome and delicious opportunity.  It was a ton of fun!
