Even our internally-acclaimed Chef Cher Harris, Executive Pastry Chef at The Hotel Hershey, helped bring Chocolate-Covered February to life this year. She used tempered chocolate to craft the really cool, innovative logo. This is the first time we have ever done something like this! Harris’ creation will be featured in advertisements; web and print materials and across social media channels managed by Hershey, PA. Here are some behind-the-scenes shots of her work:
