Dip It In Chocolate and Put a Stick In It. Valentine’s Day Treats, 2012.

Today did not go at all the way that I had planned. At about four in the afternoon, I was all “Oh, crap! Valentine’s Day is tomorrow! What will Gabby take for her class?”
She wanted to make the iPod candy’s she made last year, but there just wasn’t time. I am not a crafty person nor am I the kind of person who can come up with adorable ideas on the spot. I need to research and think and possibly pray/cry to make crafts happen. But you guys! I saw a bag of marshmallows in the cabinet and was like I’VE GOT THIS.
I sent Pighunter to the candy store with a short list.
Melting milk chocolate, sticks for suckers, heart shaped sprinkles and little baggies.
I had pink pipe cleaner and paper for tags.
Then this happened.

And that’s about as creative as it’s gonna get up in here for Valentine’s Day.

    Holy crap. You’re not crafty? Y, I think you have some self-reflection to do.
    ‘Cause that? That is crafty.
    (My son’s school sent notices that we should not send candy. Well darn, no crafty for me! Not that there was going to be any crafty anyway.)

    Those are adorable! I sort of hate that at my son’s school we’re not allowed to do anything homemade, it all has to be store bought. I guess because of allergy concerns? It’s lame.

    Those are seriously adorable! For my 8th grade son (he goes to a private K-8 school that has an all-school party), I bought a 12 pack of Orange Crush and had him tie a note on each can that said, “the only crush worth having on Valentine’s Day.” I got the idea from pinterest, he was the hit of his class.
