Hershey Chocolate Valentine Holder - SUO Challenges #140

We had a little bit of the snow that crippled the Eastern Seaboard in the USA, but nothing like what they experienced.
I am wishing daily for the snow to disappear and the spring sun shine through my window again.
But first, there is Valentine's Day.

This holder I designed for a mega Hershey's kiss( weight 41gm) that I saw in the Dollar store. I made it  for the challenge at SUO
It was a bit of a challenge, and after several attempts I was successful.
