Valentine baskets for kids

We are all familiar with Easter baskets but this year let’s make Valentine’s Day even sweeter for the littlest ones you love – your kids – with a Valentine’s Day basket surprise.

We’re taking the traditional Hershey’s sweets we love to give on Valentine’s day and giving them our own unique twist. Today, we are sharing our sweet Valentine’s Day baskets we created for our kids for this LOVE-ly holiday – a Hershey’s Candy Sundae and Loads of Love Valentine Truck Basket. Shh, just don’t tell them yet!

My daughter loves all things sweet especially ice cream and candy and making fun sundae connotations on the weekend. With Valentine’s Day falling on Sunday this year I thought a Hershey’s Candy Sundae would be just the right way to treat her.

You can make your own sweet #HSYMessageOfLove Candy Sundae for your little sweetheart too with just a few supplies and some yummy Hershey’s chocolates.

Candy sundae creation


  • Sundae glass
  • Styrofoam ball
  • Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Conversation Kisses
  • Kit Kat Miniatures
  • Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Hearts filled with Caramel
  • Hot Glue
  • Curly Straw (optional)

Fill your sundae glass with Kit Kat Miniatures. Cut your styrofoam ball in half and use hot glue to glue the half ball onto the top of your sundae glass. Add a small dab of hot glue to the bottom of your Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Conversation Kisses and adhere to the styrofoam ball. Start at the bottom and work your way up and around, being sure to leave space for a curly straw if desired.

Top your Candy Sundae with a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Heart filled with Caramel as the cherry! Viola, what a sweet treat for your sweet Valentine!

We haven’t forgotten about your little heartthrobs either. Cars and trucks are big in our house lately with our 2 year old little guy. Give your little Valentine a “Loads of Love” Valentine truck basket filled to the brim with all your favorite Hershey’s candies.

My sweet little guy is just like his Daddy and loves peanut butter, so of course we had to include the Reese’s Peanut Butter 5 oz Heart as well as a variety of other sweet treats from Hershey’s.

To jazz up the wheels in our “Loads of Love” Valentine truck basket for boys, we used double sided tape to stick Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Hearts filled with Caramel in the center of the wheels.
