Hershey's Chocolate Visit Part I

Last month, I was invited to visit Hershey's Headquarters with Linda Stahl, and to hang out with some pretty fabulous bloggers, called by Hershey's as the Baker's Dozen: Naomi from Baker's Royale, Karly from Buns in My Oven, Julie from The Little Kitchen, Bridget from Bake at 350, Lindsay and Taylor from Love and Olive Oil,  Shelly from Cookies & Cups, Susan from Doughmesstic, Jessica from The Novice Chef, Meaghan from The Decorated Cookie, Liz from Hoosier Homemade, and Courtney from Pizzazzerie!

On my way to Hershey's Headquarters

We stayed at the Hershey Hotel, made our own Hershey's chocolate candy bar, went chocolate shopping, chocolate tasting from around the world, filmed and photographed our projects at Hershey's Test Kitchens, and had a fun cookie exchange party!

And, of course, what do you do when you go the Hershey's? Of course, you eat and drink chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate - in everything possible.

Part of the of the visit was to create our own recipes using Hershey's products, when I returned home. Kelly and I put our heads together and thought about what would be a lot of fun and festive; we always like to create recipes and tutorials that are original and creative, of course!

We at baking911.com decided to create:
