2 Sweet Kids' Valentine Baskets

We're taking the traditional Hershey's sweets we love to give on Valentine's day and giving them our own unique twist. Today, we are sharing our sweet Valentine's Day baskets we created for our kids for this LOVE-ly holiday - a Hershey's Candy Sundae and Loads of Love Valentine Truck Basket.

Hershey's Candy Sundae Valentine's Basket

My daughter loves all things sweet especially ice cream and candy and making fun sundae connotations on the weekend. With Valentine's Day falling on Sunday this year I thought a Hershey's Candy Sundae would be just the right way to treat her. I love the vintage feel of this creation and it's pretty easy to assemble.

You can make your own sweet Candy Sundae for your little sweetheart too with just a few supplies and some yummy Hershey's chocolates.
