  1. Use a small sharp knife to make openings in two gummy candy hearts (I used cherry, but sour and cinnamon flavors are available).
  2. Insert hearts gently on each end of a chocolate Ovation stick. (Hint – Refrigerated chocolate sticks don’t break as easily)
  3. ???  I tried to create an arrow using an Ovation Break-A-Part and white candy coating.  I wasn’t happy with the results … showed it anyway because I’m including a Break-A-Part in the giveaway!

Frost your cupcakes like this …

  1. Your cupcakes are adorable. So cute and clever idea
    I would use the giveaway products in making some sweet treats for my grandkids.
    Thank you for this opportunity


  2. Cute cupcakes! I am participating in our Winter Market on Friday mornings and planning on making Valentine goodies. Would use the candies for those. Valentine’s Day is on Friday this year. Yeah!


  3. Love these! I will use the candies to make cupcakes for my son’s class party and decorate cookies for the nurse’s station at the hospital I was at.


  4. Brenda, I did find some Valentine’s Sixlets at Walmart. I’m going to keep looking for more colors. Might eat them; might decorate with them. Thanks for the contest. My fingers are crossed!


  5. If I won, I would use them to make wonderful, delicious creations with my grandson (age 8) and my granddaughter (age 6). They both love to help me cook!
