So last month I had the pleasure of visiting Hershey’s HQ (total chocolate heaven). I was itching to make a push-up pop with their delicious goodies so I decided on a Hershey’s Hot Cocoa Push-Up Pop! The weather is getting colder (not cold enough however, I want snow). Really though, why is it so warm? Instead of pondering climate change, let’s ponder chocolate, shall we? I used the Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder (the special dark would also be fantastic). Here’s a little picture version of making + assembling (full printable recipe below it).
