4. Cocoa Chocolate Shake

Milkshake hack: cocoa powder! You can still break out the cocoa when it's too hot for hot chocolate. HERSHEY’S Cocoa brings rich flavor to this decadent yet refreshing chocolate shake. This is different from frozen hot chocolate because it doesn’t have the same fixings like creamer or salt.


5. HERSHEY’S Chocolate Cherry Milkshake

Ice cream shop flavors are closer than you think. Take this shake for example: It's like a chocolate-covered cherry in a glass. The vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt in your freezer will work for this fun recipe. Top with whipped cream and an iconic maraschino to layer on the happiness.


6. Frozen Hot Chocolate

It is a delicious blend made with milk and ice, after all … Enjoy the sweet combination of marshmallows and HERSHEY’S Cocoa all year long with this delicious chiller. Ready in five minutes, you can enjoy it right away — no waiting in the drive-through.


7. KIT KAT® Coffee Chiller Shake
