Valentine Sweetness....

We have a bit of wintering weather but it still feels good to have Valentines approaching...there are so many ways to tell those you love...I Love You...

I find myself gathering all the heart shape pans, heart shape cookie cutters, packing is time to make some goodies for the one's I love!!!

Use up your left over candie canes from Christmas to make this sweet treet.

Candy cane suckers featered in the Family Fun magizine from the Idea Room...see link, this is a sweet idea to use up candy canes from Christmas...if you have any, or can find some in the after Christmas sales!!!

The many things you can do with heartshape pans....over the years I have collected a few!!!

If cookies and cakes are not in the works a simple cup cake will go a long ways!!!

How simple is this....
Remove the cellophane wrapping from the canes and form hearts by placing them hook to hook and tail to tail on a nonstick baking sheet or one lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350°F for 2 to 4 minutes (depending on the canes' size) or until they stick together when you pinch the ends lightly. Cool thoroughly and remove with a spatula. If you want to make flat hearts with psychedelic stripes, bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

It's time to mix up some love in your KITCHEN!!!!
