Valentine’s Day is an occasion to show people how much you care about and value them. Though stores would have us believe that a box of chocolates does the trick, we think homemade candy showcases it even better. That’s why we’ve collected these tasty, heartfelt treats that will say “I love you” in new ways.
Valentine’s Day mints

These homemade Valentine’s Day mints by Emily at busymommy are the perfect way to treat your friends and family in a lighter way.

Sounds too complicated? It’s not! Check out this simple step-by-step video tutorial, and see for yourself. Your loved ones are sure to be surprised and delighted with this one!
Conversation heart candies are commonly seen at this time of year. Though called “conversation” hearts, their generic (and often hard-to-read) words don’t really say what you’re feeling. Make things a little more personal this year by creating your very own with the help of Colleen at The Smart Cookie Cook and her homemade conversation hearts recipe. These handmade treats are a unique way to say “I love you.”
