Chocolate-Covered February makes winter one of the sweetest times of the year in Downtown Hershey! Over 90 events are occurring throughout the month of February at Hershey area restaurants, spas, and The Hershey Story Museum. Check out a few of our favorite ways to celebrate Chocolate-Covered February in Downtown Hershey.
Treat yourself or your special someone to a day of relaxation at MeltSpa. Indulge in their exclusive Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Treatments or relax and unwind with a series of treatments in the cinnamon mocha collection.
If you’re looking for other hands on activities, The Hershey Story, the Museum on Chocolate Avenue, features chocolate lab classes throughout the month, including Truffles for Couples: Introducing Ruby Chocolate evening classes. On select evenings in February, participants can experience tastes of single origin warm drinking chocolates from around the world and hand roll ruby and traditional dark chocolate ganache, coat them in white or milk chocolate, finish them with toppings and package them to take home. Participants also receive a heart-shaped candy bar and a long-stemmed red rose.
Devon Seafood + Steak is offering a three course chocolate-inspired menu throughout the month of February. We particularly like the cocoa dusted scallops, steak seasoned with cocoa coffee rub, and chocolate velvet cake.
Prefer to sip your chocolate? Houlihan’s Restaurant + Bar is offering chocolate mini martini flights and a chocolate covered pretzel drink. They’ll also be featuring a bitter sweet cherry cocktail and for dessert, Nutrageous crunch pie. Coming to dinner with kids? Houlihan’s is offering Plate Date Nights with the Hershey Characters on select evenings in February. Kids eat for $1.99 with the purchase of an entree and the Hershey Characters will be there from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Think all of this chocolate is for the birds? Or perhaps mountain lions? Visit Zoo America each Saturdays in February to see a different animal enjoy a special chocolate-themed animal treat. See the mountain lion enjoy a winter treat on February 15.
