This time of year is the prime season for watching Hallmark movies, whether you’re a seasonal fan of Hallmark Channel or enjoy watching the movies year-round.
If you love those movies and baking too, you’re in luck. Thanks to a holiday baking contest run by Hallmark Channel and Hershey, you could win a walk-on role as a baker in a future Hallmark Channel original movie.
“To continue spreading the holiday cheer, Hershey has teamed up with Hallmark Channel for the first time ever to introduce a holiday baking contest, where one lucky fan will win the ultimate prize of a walk-on role as a baker in a Hallmark Channel original movie,” the companies explained in a statement. “Now through December 31, the two brands are calling on baking enthusiasts to make their next kitchen adventure even more magical by using a Hershey’s baking product, like the new Holiday Baking Shapes, in their festive creations.”
How To Enter The Baking Contest
Entering the baking contest is a piece of cake — sorry for the pun, but I had to do it.
Here’s all you need to do to enter the “Bake Your Way To The Big Screen” contest. First, visit this website.
Once you’re there, you’ll enter your email address, and then upload a picture of a holiday baked good you made using a Hershey’s baking product.
After that, you’ll need to upload the recipe, give it a name, and that’s it. Then you just need to wait to find out if you won, with choices of a walk-on role in a Hallmark Channel original movie or $5,000 in prize money.
Some Important Rules
As with any contest, there are some rules that must be followed. Of course, the first rule is that your recipe must include a Hershey’s Cocoa or Hershey’s Baking Chip product.
Next, keep in mind that since this is a holiday baking contest, applications must be submitted by December 31 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. As you probably suspect, you must be at least 18 years old to enter the contest.
Wait, There’s More!
Whether you’re a seasoned baker, a beginner, or somewhere in between, you’ll also want to visit the online “Countdown to Christmas” holiday cookbook from Hershey and the Hallmark Channel. You can find the cookbook here.
The cookbook includes some recipes you may already be familiar with as well as some that may become your new favorites. They range from “White Peppermint Bark” and “Chocolate Overloaded Cookies” to “Chocolate Reindeer Tart” and “Gone To Heaven Chocolate Pie.”
