    Homemade Valentine's Suckers | The Gray Boxwood

    Growing up, I always loved the craft day at school when we would make our Valentine’s Day boxes for classmates to put cards and candy in! At the time, it seemed like so much candy and I loved it!

But for kids in school, it seems like you always usually get the same treats!

    I love creating my own candy and while it seems like it would be a lot of effort to make, candy is actually rather easy.
