Why Do We Give Candy on Valentine’s Day?

Ever wonder why boxes of chocolates and conversation hearts are staples for Valentine’s Day? While the history of Valentine’s Day goes back to the 1300’s, the tradition of giving Valentine’s Day candy on February 14th did not evolve until later. Sugar was actually still a precious commodity back then!
By the 1840’s, Valentine’s Day had taken over most of the English-speaking world. Victorians showered each other with fancy cards and gifts. Then came Richard Cadbury, who was part of a family of chocolatiers. Cadbury had recently changed its chocolate recipe, and Richard marketed some of their new chocolate items by selling them in beautifully decorated boxes he had designed. It wasn’t long after that Cupids and roses started appearing on heart-shaped boxes containing more sweets!

What to do with Leftover Holiday Candy

It’s that time of year where we find ourselves with an excess of holiday candy going rapidly stale. Not sure what to do with it all? Don’t throw it away! Try some of these ideas first.
–  Bake them into cookies. Why have chocolate chip cookies when you can have chunky Snicker’s cookies?

– Add crushed candy canes to desserts like ice cream or brownies.

– Use candy canes to stir your hot chocolate or coffee. The peppermint flavor will be melted into your drink.

– Melt down milk chocolates for fondue or molding into newly-shaped chocolate.

– Add M&M’s to trail mix.

– Stick it in the freezer and reuse as Valentine’s Day candy later!

  • 2 ounces peach schnapps
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice

Conversation Heart Bark

From:

http://thedecoratedcookie.com/2012/01/partying-with-conversation-heart-bark/

  • Silicone ice cube tray (hearts if you can find one)
  • White chocolate chips or candy melts, any color
  • Conversation hearts
  • Ziploc
  • Hammer or mallet
  • Disposable decorating bag
  • Scissors

Directions

step one: crush your hearts
Oh, that sounds so sad. Place some conversation hearts in a Ziploc and smash with the hammer or mallet. Best to do this over a cutting board or dish towel so you don’t destroy the counter. Sprinkle a layer of crushed hearts on the bottom of each heart in the tray.

step two: melt your chocolate
Add some chocolate chips or candy melts to the disposable decorating bag. Fold over the top so they don’t fall out of the bag. Don’t fill the bag too much, use about 1/2 cup of chips or whatever fits comfortably in the bag. Microwave at 50 percent power for a minute and a half. Massage the chips and keep microwaving at 30, then 20 second intervals just until the chips are melted.

step three: add your chocolate
Snip the tip of the decorating bag and pipe the melted chocolate on top of the crushed hearts to fill the tray. Pick up both ends of the tray and gently stamp it flat on the counter to tamp down the chocolate. Let set well, a couple hours. Pop out of the tray and that’s it!

Sweetheart Rice Krispies

From:

http://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/983695/funfetti-conversation-heart-rice-krispies-recipe

  • 1 package marshmallows (about 40 large ones)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 2 cups mini-marshmallows
  • About 1/2 cup sprinkles
  • Conversation hearts
  • Melted white chocolate

Directions

  1. Heat butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Once melted, add in large marshmallows. Heat until mixture is fully melted, stirring constantly, about 5-6 minutes.
  2. Pour the cereal, mini-marshmallows and sprinkles in a large mixing bowl. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the Rice Krispies and stir to combine. Add additional sprinkles if you’d like.
  3. Using your hands, press the mixture into a large 9 x 13-inch glass-baking pan. Push it down with your hands to smooth out lumps. While the mixture is still warm, press in conversation hearts all over the Rice Krispies.
  4. Chill Rice Krispies for about an hour. Once chilled, stamp out hearts with heart-shaped cookie cutters. Drizzle hearts with white chocolate and enjoy!
