When it comes to Valentine’s Day our FAVORITE candy is chocolate, but the CUTEST candy is conversation hearts! The history of this candy goes all the way back to the mid 1800s when the New England Confectionery Company (NECCO – as in NECCO wafers) debuted the candies, which were originally called “motto hearts”. What we love about modern-day conversation hearts is that they are perfect for incorporating into crafts and recipes to make easy Valentine creations.
These DIY Conversation Heart Donuts are perfect when you’re short on time and still want to make a yummy and cute treat, or if you’re looking for a food project that is easy for kids to make all by themselves. They’ll be able to create a Valentine donut in just a few minutes! Here’s how:
DIY Conversation Heart Donuts
Chocolate Frosted Donut
Place the donut on a small piece of wax paper and place on top of a microwave-safe plate. Microwave for 5-10 seconds or until chocolate just starts to melt. Remove from microwave and immediately place conversation hearts on the donut, pressing them down into the frosting. Let sit until chocolate hardens. (We put ours in the refrigerator to speed up the process.)
