"I (heart) peppermint"

Does anyone else feel like they are going broke saving money??? I sometimes feel like this when I look in my pantry only to find countless $ spent on clearance or past season items... Take for example mini candy canes.... on clearance for 25 cents! Too cute to pass up & yet why would I need them??? Well for Valentine hearts of course....

First open the little booger-wanna-be hearts (or get some help from a very eager little 6 yr old)...

& place them together forming a heart shape on a baking sheet...

Next bake them for about 5 minutes @ 240 degrees- then smoosh the hearts together in the middle & @ the point.

Finally put the hearts on top of an already YUMMY dessert...

and watch them beg for more hearts!!!

I am queen tonight in their eyes & ALL is right in the world!!!
