What does Milton S.Hershey and Willy Wonka have in common?

Candy of course....They had a great desire to create and make candy.  So we all have a favorite candy right?...gummy bears, licorice, chocolate, taffy and so much more. But, why is it that on  Valentine's Day we associate giving a box of candy to our sweethearts? Is it to go with the tradition of the holiday ? Or so we don't look like we don't love our special someone? For whatever the reason is, we can say that we all love the taste of candy and chocolate. Whether you like dark, milk or white its all delicious. The process to make chocolate is quite a lengthy one. Its starts will picking the pods and taking out the seeds. Watch the video on the steps involved in making chocolate. Then when your done with the video. Why don't you make my favorite dessert? I love this easy to make dessert, chocolate covered strawberries.
