HERSHEY'S Has All Your Easter Basket Needs! {review}


If you're looking to pack up the perfect Easter basket, look no further than the HERSHEY'S brand. Seriously. Just buy up all their yummy choices and you'll be all set. 

I was sent some delicious things to make my own basket. In the basket pictured above, I have
  • HERSHEY'S Solid Milk Chocolate SNAPSY Bunny
  • REESE'S Peanut Butter Eggs
  • JOLLY RANCHER Wild Berry Jelly Beans
  • YORK Peppermint Patty Eggs
  • HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Eggs
  • CADBURY CREME EGG Candy
The YORK Peppermint Patty Eggs and JOLLY RANCHER Wild Berry Jelly Beans are new this year and absolutely delicious. I'm partial to the YORK eggs, myself but that's just because I love YORK everything. :) 





The hubster prefers his REESE'S Peanut Butter Eggs. He thinks they're the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter...and he's very upset when Easter is done and these leave store shelves. And please don't get me started on Cadbury creme eggs. I just love sneaking one of these to snack on during the day. 


The new HERSHEY'S Snapsy Milk Chocolate Bunnies are made to be easy to share. There are scored parts of the bunny that easily snap off. But really, I'm not looking to share this bunny in my house. How could I share something that tastes like a giant HERSHEY'S Kiss? Impossible! {I'll have to make sure everyone has his/her own.} ;)



Also new this year are the JOLLY RANCHER Jelly Beans. I tried out the Wild Berry flavors. These are way too good for a sweet tooth like mine. {Watermelon is my favorite of the flavors but they're all delicious.}

Finally, I HAVE to tell you about the Celebrate with HERSHEY'S website. On this site, you'll find a complete listing of what HERSHEY'S products are available for Easter, as well as basket ideas, crafts, recipes, and more! They have the cutest ideas there so you'll want to visit for sure. 

Speaking of crafts, I saw a cute wreath craft on that site. The wreath is fully covered with HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Eggs. I wanted to do something similar to that craft but do it in a way that is a little easier for little ones to help out with. 


What you'll need:

  • 1 Bag o HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Eggs
  • 1 piece of cardboard you can reuse {If you want to cut an exact circle, you may want to use a compass.}
  • 1 box cutter
  • 1 Glue gun
  • Ribbon




I started out by making my circle and cutting it out. {I used an old box lid left over from moving and grabbed my compass so I could make a perfect circle.} Then, I used the box cutter to cut it out. 


Grabbing my ribbon, I cut about a 2 foot length and folded down about 2 inches, securing just the bottom of the loop with my hot glue gun to create a tab for hanging. 


 I then used my hot glue gun to secure the ribbon completely to the front of my "wreath" and also secured the excess on the back. Now, if you have enough ribbon, you may want to wrap the whole wreath to make a pretty background for the eggs. I didn't have enough, so I grabbed a marker and colored the the wreath.


This is a good part to let the little ones help out on. 


Finally, finding the back seam on each egg, I put a bead of hot glue from top to bottom and placed it on the wreath until it was full. I finished off the wreath by cutting a length of ribbon to tie around the wreath and add a bow.


Tada!

This is a fast and easy project and it looks so cute. Just keep in mind, once the eggs are glued to the wreath, they're not going to be OK to eat. ;)
