That was my first time making the homemade gummi snacks..
Boy did I learn some things haha BUT I've made them twice since..
They are VERY good ... but not the healthiest I can tell you that.. there are now recipes that include fruit purees etc that you can use that are more healthy.. this recipe contains A LOT of sugar.. like.. 3 cups...
But if you don't mind that.. they are soooo good.. lol.
I have a serious addiction to sugar.. so I don't mind it one bit..
The recipe makes A TON though so now I cut it in half... even after cutting it in half I still have candy for like a month... totally not complaining though.. honestly.
If you do want the recipe you can find it HERE.
The other snacks.. I made roll out chocolate chip cookies and added some food coloring they did come out pink =)
And I also put some strawberry yogurt in my heart mold and made some frozen yogurt snacks. Those were pretty fantastic!!
There's lots of options for heart/valentines themed foods...
These are just the ones we made last year..
I have made some new things this year!!!
Can't wait to share them with you all!!!
I just think it's nice to look back and see what I've accomplished..
Where I've come from and what we're doing now..
It's definitely awesome =)

Believe it or not I still have the "nerdy Valentines" I've actually recycled them..

As for the painting.. we actually use a toilet paper roll and rubber bands and made some heart stamps..
Easy, fun, frugal!!
