Just in time for Valentine's Day, treat your little sweethearts to a chocolate factory tour to learn how candies are made. Whether you visit a local fudge and candy shop or travel to the grand Hershey Chocolate factory in Pennsylvania, your kids will be dazzled by the melting, mixing and molding of chocolate (not to mention the aroma of cocoa wafting through the air!). From bean to bar, Willy Wonka fans will enjoy learning about the different ingredients that go into a box of chocolates -- and of course they'll love sampling the products too. At Hershey's Chocolate World factory, kids are even invited to help operate the machines that make those famous Kisses. What a mouthwatering way to spend the day! Just be sure they brush their teeth extra well before bedtime!
