Sunflower Kisses and Miracles

There are many ways chocolate makes people happy, and one of the worthiest is a tour that has been described as the “chocolate lover’s dream.”

For 10 years, the Hershey’s Kissmobile Cruisers have crisscrossed the country to raise awareness of and donations for the 170 nonprofit Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

The Kissmobile Cruisers visit more than 70 North American cities and drive more than 70,000 miles each year.

The tour showcases new products (more than 230,000 Hershey’s Kisses chocolates can fit into a refrigerated compartment) as well as staging fun events, such as sing-along contests and beanbag tosses and crafts. Last year the tour reached the fundraising goal of $1 million in donations to Children’s Miracle Network.

While waiting for the tour to reach your hometown, you may want to make these delicious cookies:
