Hershey Recipes

I like to make recipes that you would not expect. Which is why I have wanted to do a savory chocolate dish. Drawing inspiration from Hershey recipes, I am from Pennsylvania after all. 

Hotel Hershey does some amazing savory chocolate dishes like the famous chocolate dusted scallops! So it was inspiration like those types of Hershey recipes that inspired the bbq sauce ingredients for these cocktail meatballs.

Coffee Rub

How did a coffee rub inspire these cocktail meatballs? Honestly, it was a coffee rub beef roast that made me think, why not add a little coffee to the BBQ sauce! You do after all add chocolate to coffee so why not!
