Valentine’s Day gift ideas
Funny sugar cubes for his morning coffee
• sugar cubes
• powdered sugar and milk for the icing
• candy confetti or cupcake sprinkles
• melted chocolate
• food decorating pens
To attach the decorations to your sugar cubes you need a small amount of “glue” made of milk and powdered sugar.
Cubes can be decorated with melted dark chocolate, colorful sprinkles in a variety of shapes and colors or just to write on them with food coloring pen.
You can use this idea also for a brunch or tea party. Depending on the type of entertainment you can write different messages other than LOVE. Children like to play games so you could create a sweet version of the 3-in-a-row game for them. You can also encourage them to make several designs by yourself for their friends.
Smiley faces as a companion for the morning coffee will brighten the day of everyone.
Valentines’s Day gift ideas – Heart chocolate pops
We try to prepare chocolate pops that are as healthy as possible, so we choose healthy ingredients, such as:
– dried fruit (prunes, raisins, apricots, cranberries)
– nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts etc.)
– chocolate (preferably chocolate with a high cocoa content)
You will need also a heart lollipop candy mold and wooden skewers. The hearts were sprinkled with pistachios and goji berries that are much more photogenic.
Shred the nuts and dried fruits into small pieces. Melt the chocolate and stir in the dried fruit or nuts. Pour into the heart molds. After a few minutes sprinkle with pistachios or goji berries. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until the chocolate hardens.
