Now that we’re in 2022, the countdown to Valentine’s Day is in full swing. While Valentine’s Day may be about love and romance, it’s also very much about sweet treats. Whether you’re planning to make something special, like Ina Garten’s five-ingredient cookies or hot chocolate bombs, dessert is destined to be as sweet as the occasion. But it’s not always necessary to prepare those sweet treats at home.

If you still find yourself suffering from baking burnout, Hershey’s is making the road to sweetness a little easier by releasing their Valentine’s-centric lineup of candies for the season, and trust me — they all are brimming with sweet, chocolatey romance. 

Reese’s Blossom-top Miniature Cups gives us an early promise of spring via a layer of light pink colored creme on top of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Miniature Cup. The pink covered-chocolate is perfect for the season of hearts and a great way to segue into Easter through bouquet-inspired foils.

For those craving a little extra heart this Valentine’s Day, there are also Hershey’s Pink Cookies ‘N’ Creme Hearts and Reese’s White Creme Hearts — which would be adorable to throw inside a card or attach to a gift. 

But Valentine’s Day is not just about romantic love. For those celebrating Galentine’s Day, there are super-cute Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates BFF Gift Boxes. Filled with classic Hershey’s Kisses milk chocolates, you can even give one half of the heart to your best friend and leave the other for yourself. It’s like those old-fashioned BFF charm necklaces, only tastier!

Whether or not you have a partner this Valentine’s Day, it’s nice to know there can be just a touch of sweetness in your day! And if you’ve gotten your desire to bake back, you can always add the mini chocolate bites into a batch of peanut butter blossom cookies.
