Lava cakes are a crazy-popular Valentine's Day dessert at restaurants and even at home when making something special for your someone special. For those of us without a culinary degree (or patience), Hershey's is making life a bit easier for this romantic holiday by introducing their lava cake flavored Kisses. Just buy, unwrap, eat.

Buy It: Hershey's Molten Lava Kisses, $3.59

Surprise, surprise, since the end-of-year holidays are over, retailers have moved on to Valentine's Day and you can already find this new Hershey's Kisses flavor on shelves. While we haven't had the good fortune of tasting this new seasonal product yet, the descriptions we've found describe them as a dark chocolate Kiss with a gooey center. What else would you expect from a lava cake?

Actually surprising is that this molten lava cake flavor announcement comes right on the heels of their hot cocoa flavor release. Hot cocoa was their newest flavor in 10 years, now mere months later shelves are stocked with another new flavor. It sure has us wondering what the next flavor will be and when we can get our hands on it.

The seasonal Kiss flavor comes in the usual 9-ounce package you're used to seeing, but the packaging is extra adorable. Just look at those little pink hearts all over the foil wrappers! So sweet. And if the insides really goo out like that, we're stocking up immediately to enjoy the Valentine's candy year-round.

Concerning the new Heshey I have done as suggested above - buy, unwrap, eat. I did enjoy this new flavor. The candy center is as pictured - a thick chocolate liquid. And the bonus is that the cute wrapping looks really decorative sitting in a bowl...for the short amount of time before they are eaten!
