A sweet plunge for chocolate fans
Take the plunge -- the Creamy Chocolate Plunge, that is. Hershey Foods has come up with an easy dip recipe for on-the-go families. Stir together 1 jar (7-ounces) marshmallow creme and 1 1/2 cups Hershey's Syrup in a medium bowl until well-blended. Assemble dippers, like fresh strawberries, bananas, apples, seedless grapes and cubes of poundcake, and dig in. Store leftover dip, well-covered, in the fridge.
Week that adds up to good health
