Edible DIY Valentine’s Day Crafts

Hey Cuties,

My son had his black belt exam and tournament this weekend. I mean the entire weekend {he did make black belt} so we camped out in a hotel getting up early and staying up late. After returning home I wanted to do something a little fun with the kids. The little one was sleep so it turned out to be more bonding time with the 10 year old. I promised him that I would note all images were taken by him and by him I mean “Ninja Nasir”. It’s his thing go with it; after all he is a black belt now.

MimiCuteLips Day aka Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it; it’s lips for days in the stores right now. I decided to take full advantage and do an edible DIY Valentine’s Day craft blog. Your boo will really love you if you feed them, food is the way to the soul. Feel free to take all of the credit for your creations, but you can secretly pass this link about the web.

You can get all of these items at your local craft store, take a coupon with you so you get a savings.

SUPPLIES:
Candy Melts: They are so easy to use and they come in tons of flavors.
Sprinkles: I opted for a festive variety canister.
Lollipop Mold: They have a million different kind but lips were a given for me.
Lollipop Sticks: You have a variety of sizes and lengths for your choosing.
Ribbon: I got Valentine’s Day themed ribbons to tie the bags closed.
Pretzel & Candy bags: You have a variety of sizes for your choosing.
Wax Paper: When you aren’t using your molds, decorate on wax paper.
Pretzels: I used pretzel rods but you can use any kind of pretzels.

Grab a microwave safe bowl and put your respective chocolates in each bowl. Don’t be afraid to try different things, I wasn’t. Follow the microwaveable instructions on the back of the candy melts bag. When its done stir it up before you decide if they need more time.

Instead of just dipping the pretzels I decided to drizzle them. I’m using a piping bag to drizzle the chocolate. You pour the chocolate in, clip the tip and it drizzles on out. This is a fun technique you don’t have to be perfect, messy chocolate is welcomed.

I’ve drizzled them up and put some the sprinkles on; the mini hearts are my absolute favorite. After you finish just slide them into the fridge until they harden. It doesn’t take long at all.

The top row is red velvet chocolate drizzle and the bottom is pink rose. They have chilled and they are ready to go.

Fill up your mold halfway then put the sticks in and fill them up the rest of the way. Don’t be afraid to get creative with these either. In order to make the backs flat I used a toothpick to swirl the chocolate around.

I had a few creative ideas I wanted to try, I was going for a marble kind of look. This is best done when you swirl the chocolates in a bowl before pouring into the mold. I swirled the red velvet and pink rose then pink rose and milk chocolate.

Here are a few of my creations. I drizzled some pink rose on the red velvet lips. I covered the bottom lip with mini heart sprinkles on the pink rose. I bagged them up and tied festive ribbon around the sticks.

 I was trying a sprinkle thing here, I poured the sprinkles into the bottom of the mold. Then I poured the chocolate on top. It came out pretty good but the sprinkles can get a little messy.

 Bagged, ribbon-ed and ready to go. These are great as Valentine treats, as gifts to teachers, co-workers, kids or your boo. You can hand them out individually or make a bouquet out of them.

You can pair them up something like this, or put 12 or so in a vase together.
