Easy DIY Valentine's Day Basket

Hey All!

I’m thrilled to kick my Valentine’s Day content off with a fun collaboration with The Hershey Company! Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to do DIY’s for, because I love hearts, pink, and candy with a passion! It’s the one holiday in which I can combine all three in everything I do! Woot! In honor of the New Hershey’s Kisses Conversation Candies (that I’m obsessed with and are only available exclusively at my home away from home Target) and Reese’s Conversation Cups, I decided to make an adorable easy Valentine’s Day candy basket plus some free printables to share with you today!

Hershey's Valentine's Day Candy

To make this fun basket you’ll need:


  • A variety of Hershey’s candies including Valentine’s Day themed Kit Kat Miniatures, Hershey’s Caramel Filled Milk Chocolate Hearts, Valentine Exchange Jolly Rancher Lollipops, a Hershey’s Solid Milk Chocolate Heart, and of course Hershey’s Kisses Conversation Candies and Reese’s Conversation Cups.
  • Red Heart Shaped Basket.
  • Pink Tissue Paper.
  • Scissors.
  • Pink Envelopes.
  • School Craft Glue.
  • Red Marker.
  • And the free printables you’ll find further down in this post.


You’ll first start by lining your basket with pink tissue paper, so none of your candy falls out. After that’s done, you’ll start unpacking the amount of candy you’d like to include in your basket.

I started with my Reese’s Conversation Cups and Valentine Exchange Jolly Rancher Lollipops. What I love about these candies is you can write some fun or loving messages directly on them. You’ll of course do this before you put them in your basket.

Customize Hershey's Valentine's Day Candy

Each Reese’s Conversation Cups candy wrapper has an area that says “TO:” & “FROM:” on it which you can customize.

I recommend using a red marker to make sure your writing stays on. You’ll first write all your special messages on to your Hershey’s Kisses Conversation Candies before you place them into your basket.

You’ll then pick out which cute Hershey’s Kisses Conversation Candies phrases you’d like to put in your basket.

I also filled our basket with some Kit Kat Miniatures and Hershey’s Caramel Filled Milk Chocolate Hearts, because you can never have enough chocolate right?!!

To personalize our basket, I made these little printable ombré rainbow colored Valentine’s Day cards.

I also decided the solid milk chocolate heart needed a little cute face, so you too can add make one by downloading the printable faces by CLICKING HERE or on the image below.


You simply cut out the face with your scissors and stick it on to the chocolate heart foil wrapping with your school craft glue.
