Strawberry Hearts

                        Valentine's Day will be here before we know it. It's the holiday of love, expressing

your feelings to the ones you love and your appreciation of your friends. To me Valentine's Day is not
just for couples. It's for families and friends. To show the ones you love and care for how much you

really do care for them. We give each other flowers, cards, and chocolate. I have something a little

different to share with you today. It's close to chocolate but not technically chocolate. But first story


                        When I was a kid I remember my parents including us kids in a little Valentine's fun.

Besides getting the usual thin cardboard cards with funny sayings and silly characters we would also

get a small gift. I got a few little things, nothing that cost too much, things like pencils and candy.

The one thing that stands out the most and I will probably never forget is a special heart shaped

lollipop that we seemed to get almost every year. To anyone it was just a cherry flavored lollipop

with Minnie Mouse on the wrapper, but to me it was the best lollipop ever. For two reasons; First, I

only got it for Valentine's Day. That made it special in itself. Second, it was a gift from my parents;

the people whom I looked up to the most and I still do. What's your favorite Valentine's Day memory

as a  child?

                     These hearts are yummy and bring back childhood memories. Although they are not

cherry strawberry is the next best thing.

Ingredients:                                                         Makes about 30 candies

1 bag of red candy melts. or white chocolate that you would dye red

sprinkles of course

strawberry candy flavoring

heart candy molds


1. Melt candy melts at 30 second intervals, stirring after each until smooth.

2. Add sprinkle the the bottom of each heart mold.

3. Add 10 drops of candy flavoring. Stir well.

4. Put mixture into candy molds tap molds to release air bubbles. This will make the candy smooth

and pretty. And place in the fridge for 30 minutes or until set.

5. To remove the candy just turn the mold upside down and the candy should fall right out. If they

seem to be a little stuck just give the mold a tap or two on the counter and they should pop out.
