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! Thinking back to those times while perusing my local store aisles, I realize there isn’t a lot of candy to choose from. Don’t get me wrong: the aisles are huge! 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. A few simple ingredients and inexpensive molds and you can make homemade suckers in a few minutes! How fun would it be to give away homemade Valentine’s suckers?! You do not need to be a kid to enjoy these!
