Homemade Conversation Hearts

Happy Monday, all! 

I have been hoping to share a craft with you soon, but I feel like I'm in the middle of 15 projects with no final pieces to show for it. So for today, I will just have to settle for half food/half craft! 

Homemade Conversation Hearts!

I think the idea of how MANY this recipe was going to make scared me *a lot*...plus the fact that I had to come up with things to write on ALL of them. But the recipe I used was so easy to follow and worked out perfectly! The writing part was a cinch, thanks to the internet and LOTS of inside jokes with all the recipients of these treats...including Pete...

I don't remember how that nickname started really, but I've always liked it :-) And if you look at the hearts with the straight edges, I marbled a few flavors together to make a "Tropical Medley." 
Clever, right?

Wanna make some??

You can find the recipe here. It looks hard, but stick with it! 
I used extracts, rather than oils, simply because that's all I had on hand. They worked just fine and saved me some money. After much consideration, I decided on 3 flavors: Vanilla, Butter Rum, and Coconut. Crazy, I know. But they all worked!

I also chose a mini cookie cutter with a squiggly edge. (Yes, I'm sticking with that word choice) Because it looked better than the straight one...just my preference. 

Be sure to let them dry the full 24 hours before you whip out your (edible) marker...learn from my (impatience driven) mistakes, the "ink" will bleed.

Now I just have to make cute little packages for them!
