Recipes from HERSHEY'S

If you are a chocolate lover, a newbie baker (in search of basic recipes) or if you're bored looking for something to do (heehee), here are some simple and quick dessert recipes from a HERSHEY'S booklet (which came with the Chocolate Chips I bought) I got hold of.  I haven't gotten the chance to try them out though.  But they look easy to do (something that would appeal to non-bakers like me, haha!) so I'm posting them in this blog to share with everyone else. 

Happy Baking!
