Be My Valentine

Last Thursday we worked on getting Michael's valentines ready for his friends at school. The teachers like to have them in the day before the holiday. He needed to make 18 valentines for his classmates. So we started working on them on Wednesday afternoon with him writing his name on each one. We finished them up on Thursday. It was good practice for writing his name.

After we finished that, we started making Valentine candy. I got the idea from Family Fun Magazine.

First we shaped the candy canes into hearts and baked them for 10 minutes. When I took them out of the oven, I put the lollipop sticks on them.

After we filled in the hearts with the white chocolate, Michael decorated them with valentine sprinkles.

Here is the finished product!!
