My daughter came to me the other day and suggested this Valentine’s Day candy blog post. I’ve always made her cake pops for her birthday and she absolutely loves the candy coating I dip them in so she’s always thinking of things to make with it.
She happened to come across a couple of bags of the candy in our pantry and wanted to eat some of it. I explained that it probably wasn’t a great idea since it was right before dinner. I happened to have my cookie cutters sitting out and she came up with this fun idea instead.
About 10 minutes later, a tray of these festive sweet treats was hardening in the refrigerator.
For a candy that only takes a few minutes to make with only a couple of supplies, it sure looks beautiful. She’s planning on making them for teacher gifts this year.
So here are the incredibly easy instructions. Once you have all of the ingredients, it only takes about 15 minutes to make. Just remember to work fast once the candy is melted because starts hardening fairly quickly.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Bag of Vanilla Candy Wafers (depending on how many candies you’ll be making, you may want more)
- Red gel food coloring (liquid works too)
- Cookie cutters
- Decorative sprinkles (optional)
- Baking tray lined with wax paper
Add some of the red gel food coloring into the melted candy that you set aside. Stir in completely. Add more food coloring if you want a darker color.
Place cookie cutters on top of the wax paper lined baking tray.
