Betty Crocker {Hershey's} Gift Pack Giveaway

To celebrate the release of Betty Crocker Hershey's baking products, as part of a sponsored post for MyBlogSpark and their client Betty Crocker, I am hosting a giveaway for a Betty Crocker Hershey's Gift Pack. all opinions are 100% my own. #MyBlogSpark

Two of my favorite companies, Betty Crocker & Hershey's, have teamed up to release an awesome assortment of baking mixes & frostings based on classic Hershey's chocolate goodies. I was totally excited to hear about the release of these products and couldn't wait to try some of my favorite candy bars in cake & cookie form. Don't get me wrong, I know you can make candy bar-flavored baked goods from scratch - but I was excited to taste Betty Crocker & Hershey's versions. Afterall, they are experts in their respectable fields! So, I sat on the edge of my seat until the products were released...

The waiting was excruciating. But I made it. :)

Check out all the awesome flavors there are to choose from!

I decided to first try the Reese's Cupcake Mix and Hershey's Milk Chocolate Frosting. I am in love with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, especially those fun holiday shaped ones that Hershey's releases throughout the year. {it's pumpkin time right now!} I couldn't wait to see what the cupcakes were going to taste like!

To make the cupcakes, I followed the directions on the package and baked a dozen. Then I got out my new Chicago Metallic Cupcake Creation Station and Chicago Metallic Cupcake Plunger to help finish the job off.

The first task at hand was to use the Cupcake Plunger to remove the cores of the cupcakes. In the boxed Reese's Cupcake Mix there is a Peanut Butter mix that is to be squeezed {by included pouch} into the center of each cupcake. You don't have to use a cupcake plunger to do the job, it's just allows you to be able to see how much filling has been squeezed into each cupcake.

Then I evenly distributed the peanut butter into each Reese's Cupcake.

Placed the cores back in.

And got ready to frost. The Chicago Metallic Cupcake Creation Station helped to keep the frosting bag open while I filled it with frosting. The Cupcake Creation Station also comes with a retractable spatula to help get all of the frosting out of the store-bought container. I chose the clover frosting tip and started frosting!

The Cupcake Creation Station will hold a cupcake while you frost/decorate. I think this set is perfect for a beginner baker or kid who likes to help out in the kitchen! Do you know someone that this Betty Crocker {Hershey's} Gift Pack would be perfect for?

The Betty Crocker {Hershey's} Gift Pack includes 3 Betty Crocker Hershey's products {flavors will vary}, a Chicago Metallic Cupcake Creation Station, a Chicago Metallic Cupcake Plunger and a $10 Gift Card to Walmart. Awesomesauce, huh?
