VALENTINES DAY WEEK: RECIPE 1
Making Homemade Conversation Hearts are the new thing!
Do you remember when you were younger and every year in your class you would have a Valentines Day Party? There would be cupcakes, chips, and several other sugar inducing foods (that you wouldn’t eat at home) and you would pass out Valentines Day Cards? Aww! That was such a good time in life. You usually pick out the Valentines of your favorite crush or cartoon Character. I remember picking out Barbie Valentines once. That is one of the best Valentines memories I have. But what about Valentines candies? Of course you have your chocolates but one of America’s favorite Valentines candy are Conversation Hearts. You know what they are. Those cute little heart-shaped candies with cute little message written on them such as: Be Mine, Yours, Kiss Me, etc.
So where am I going with this you’re wondering? Well I got my monthly issue of Food Network Magazine and I saw a recipe of “Almost- Famous Homemade Conversation Hearts”. The first thing I thought was “Heck naw! There is an actual at-home recipe for this?” I had to try it! I thought it would be awesome to make them and write my own personalized messages on them and give them out as Valentines this year. Isn’t that a cute idea? I bet you are wondering about the taste. Do they taste like the actual Conversation Heart candies? Well…….YES! They really do! I couldn’t believe it! I was expecting them to taste like something else but they are pretty accurate. This is a messy recipe but they are super cute to make if you want to personalize them.
