Molten Chocolate: Hershey's Lava Cake Kisses

Who can resist a chocolate lava cake, with molten chocolate spilling from the center? Not I. These Hershey's Lava Cake Kisses are a great idea, especially for the Valentine's Day candy season. Each kiss consists of a dark chocolate shell with a liquid chocolate center. I forced these upon a number of colleagues and was met with quite a bit of enthusiasm. Were they being polite? Am I too critical? I like the dark chocolate outer shell. The liquid center, though, tastes so strongly of corn syrup. If this was filled with classic Hershey's Chocolate Syrup it could equal perfection. There's something just a little off with the current recipe. Try again, Hershey's! You're close!

Score (concept): 5
Score (final recipe): 3
