One of the aspects of summer that I love most is the opportunity to spend more time in the kitchen with my entire family. With fewer activities to run to in the afternoons, evenings, and weekends, my children and I are able to experiment with fun projects and delicious recipes. We incorporate everything from fresh fruit from the local farmer’s market to ingredients grown in our own deck garden into our yummy recipes and experiments.
This year Hershey’s is making summer even sweeter with Hershey’s Syrup. While I’ve loved the classic taste of Hershey’s Syrup since I was a child, I only recently learned that it can be used for far more than a milk mix-in or an ice cream topper. Did you know, for example, that Hershey’s Syrup can be used to make fun dough? Learn more about everything from Hershey’s Syrup Fun Dough to delicious recipes at www.CelebrateWithHersheys.com.
My family set out to include three Hershey’s Syrup flavors in a creative recipe of our own this summer. A friend had given us a batch of fresh raspberries from his backyard garden, and fresh fruit plus Hershey’s Syrup seemed like the perfect combination. We created a delicious trifle using alternating layers of sponge cake, Hershey’s Syrup, vanilla pudding, and raspberries.
Begin by placing a layer of sponge cake rectangles on the bottom of a trifle bowl, then drizzle the syrup over the cake. We opted to begin with Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. Next, layer vanilla pudding on top of the syrup-soaked cake rectangles, followed by a layer of raspberries or other fresh fruit. After your fruit, it’s time for another layer of cake rectangles and a different flavor of Hershey’s Syrup. Our second flavor was Hershey’s Syrup Strawberry, a perfect complement to the red raspberries in our trifle. Continue alternating layers until you reach the top of the bowl. Top with whipped cream, Hershey’s Syrup and fruit.
Confession: Rather than sticking to our initial plan to alternate Hershey’s Syrup flavors for the entire height of our trifle, I found myself creating extra Hershey’s Syrup Special Dark layers. Because Special Dark. How could I resist?
I can’t wait to hear how Hershey’s Syrup is making your summer more delicious. And watch for an upcoming post that includes a giveaway to help you celebrate summer with Hershey’s Syrup.
