Homemade Conversation Hearts

One of my favourite things about Valentine’s Day has to be conversation hearts! I’ll admit, there’s nothing special about the way that they taste, but there’s always been something about the texture, and of course the little sayings on them that I love!

Conversation Hearts

Conversation hearts were never a candy I thought about making…I never really considered what went into them. However, when searching on Pinterest for Valentine’s Day inspiration, I came across a recipe for the dough and decided to give it a try! I even ordered this amazing stamp kit from Amazon.ca…now I just need to find another use for it!DIY Conversation Hearts

In addition to custom phrases, I also used different flavours for my homemade version of the beauties:
Yellow = vanilla
Pink = cinnamon
White = peppermint
Orange = Bergamot
Blue = Rootbeer

Valentine’s Day Cookie Boxes

Happy Valentine’s Day!

The past two evenings have been super busy as I’ve been baking up a storm over here! Β Here’s a look at what I’ve been up to:

Valentine's Day

 

For the sugar cookie boxes I cut out 5 large hearts, and then used a smaller heart to cut out the middles of three of them. Once baked, I stacked them using royal icing and connected them to a base piece.

For the chocolates, I made peanut butter filled milk chocolate hearts, and peppermint filled dark chocolate hearts.

And finally, my newest creation: cookie confetti! It’s a great way to use up cookie dough, and you only have to bake them for 5 minutes πŸ™‚

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
