candy buttons

Did you know you could make your own candy dots? I didn't until I ran across this post at Be Different Act Normal


I love them all lined up in these hearts . Wouldn't they make fun Valentine's day gifts for the kids?
I had all of the supplies on hand so I mixed up the recipe and left the kids in charge of making some dots. Super fun times and easy enough for a five year old to do.

these were one of my favorite candy as a kid! I was always so excited when I got them, didn't even mind the paper when I accidentally got some of it in my mouth - lol. Found an old fashioned store that I can still buy them in around here, but great to know you can make them! Thanks for the tip!

I came across that too, and thought they would be fun! How did they turn out? What a cute idea :)
