Hershey Chocolate Cupcakes are made with rich Hershey chocolate, fluffy buttercream frosting and homemade fondant decoration!
I have loved Hershey’s chocolate ever since my son was fortunate enough to compete at the National Finals for Hershey’s North American Track and Field Games in Hershey Pennsylvania. Touring the chocolate factory was an incredible experience. Amazing to see that much chocolate. These cupcakes were topped with buttercream frosting and a Homemade Marshmallow Fondant heart.
