Oh sure, there's lots of sweetness on this plate, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the sweetness in these three little people. I love that they love coming to Nana and Papa's house. And I love that they don't mind doing all of the silly things I think up. We finally got to put the sayings on our conversation hearts. We may not be ready to go into major candy production just yet, but we had fun getting this far. This really is a fun project to do with the kids. This year's batch included almond, mint, lemon, orange, cherry and vanilla-and our "taste testers" tell me they are pretty good-although I'm not sure how discriminating their taste is since they will eat just about anything that even looks like it might contain sugar!
In any case, if you are interested in trying this with your personal taste testers, the recipe can be found at www.remodelaholic.com or several other places on the internet but I think they're all pretty comparable. It is fun and if your little munchkins don't keep licking their fingers while they're working, these would make fun gifts for teachers, friends, etc. Let's just say that ours are sticking pretty close to home!
Still a bit more Valentine's to come-stay tuned.
