Valentines treats and sweets

11:38 PM

With Valentine's day right around the corner, the feeling of love was in the air today so I got inspired to make some valentine's day sweets and treats!

1. Valentine's day scratch off!
 What you will need:
dish soap, white crayon, paint of your choice, and a paint brush
First print out a template I just made mine on word pretty easily but there are also templates you can print out on pintrest.
Second you write in the "prizes" I wrote back rub, make out, and make you dinner.
Third color each heart in with white crayon
Fourth and final is the most important step, mix the paint and dish soap together this will make it easier to scratch off.
It's the perfect thing to stick in a card as something extra.

2. Valentines day cards
I love to make my own card I feel like it means a lot more and you can be really creative and meaningful.

I loved using the conversation heart and valentine's day embellishments. The cards you can find at any craft store and you can really make them your own!
3. Homemade valentines marshmallows!

(Okay so these did not come out the way I want them too but it is the thought that counts...maybe.)
I cut marshmallows to look like hearts and wrote on them with a food coloring marker! This could work better if you had a heart cookie cutter but they are still yummy which ever way they look!


3 packages unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

Combine the gelatin and 1/2 cup of cold water in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and allow to sit while you make the syrup.

Meanwhile, combine the sugar, corn syrup, salt, and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Raise the heat to high and cook until the syrup reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat.

With the mixer on low speed, slowly pour the sugar syrup into the dissolved gelatin. Put the mixer on high speed and whip until the mixture is very thick, about 15 minutes. Add the vanilla and mix thoroughly.

With a sieve, generously dust an 8 by 12-inch nonmetal baking dish with confectioners' sugar. Pour the marshmallow mixture into the pan, smooth the top, and dust with more confectioners' sugar. Allow to stand uncovered overnight until it dries out.

Turn the marshmallows onto a board and cut them in squares. Dust them with more confectioners' sugar.
