Happy new year everyone!

I am starting off the new year with something sweet because everyone needs a little chocolate in their life. I have been enjoying my jars of new Hershey’s spreads and trying them with all kinds of things. I don’t think my family minds doing all this tasting either. Lets’ see what we have been snacking on.

Mmmnn, chocolate spread with salt and pepper pretzel thins. The salt and pepper along with the chocolate elevated the pretzels like you wouldn’t believe. I think I may be addicted to this snack. Salt, pepper and chocolate go really well together.pretzels-spreadsHow about whipping up some cream with chocolate almond spread and then mixing this in your morning coffee? I also like eating it by the spoonful. Oh my gawd, it was good! It makes me want to get up extra early every morning so I can get to my coffee.

nutsI loved potato chips dipped in the chocolate spread. Again, I was a big fan of sweet and salty. The crunchy chips with the smooth chocolate is one winning combination.

They require five ingredients which are crescent rolls, ricotta cheese, Hershey’s hazelnut chocolate spread, powdered sugar and an egg. So good especially when eaten warm!spreadpillowsPlease make these for breakfast! I will have another Hershey’s spread recipe this month and a giveaway where you can win your own Hersey’s spreads package. Stay tuned for more chocolate spreads.

Those ricotta pillows look seriously delicious! I’d probably eat the spread with a spoon, too :)

If I were going to making something with the spread I would make the ricotta pillows. They look so good Lisa! Great idea!

I just drooled all over my keyboard! Everything looks so good! Don’t be surprised if I show up at your front door in about 1/2 hour asking for snacks made with Hershey’s spreads… :-)

Whipped cream with the chocolate almond spread sounds divine. And so do these little pillows!
