Honey Bee… Mine Valentine, DIY Sweet Treats

Oh my word these are adorable right… almost too cute to eat. Tell that to my kids, they would gobble them up in no time but enjoy every bite for sure. They are a great DIY Valentines Sweet Treat Idea. They do take a few steps but easy to get an adorable end project!

What you need to make these:

  •  Hostess Twinkies Snack Cakes
  • Wilton candy eyeballs
  • White and Milk Chocolate chips to make modeling
  •  Black frosting
  •  Frosting (or use Nutella, peanut butter)

 

Honey Bee My Valentine CakesDirections:

Begin by preparing your modeling chocolate (recipe below). While the chocolate is cooling unwrap your Twinkies
Once chocolate is cooled you have a nice chocolate clay to work with.
Roll out black and white modeling chocolate to about 1/16? thickness. Use a knife or pastry wheel to cut 1/2? wide by 5?-6? long strips from the brown. Gently shape these around your bee to make the stripes of the bee aspictured, cut off excess at the bottoms as needed.
Using a sharp knife gently cut the wings from your white modeling chocolate, once cut to desired shape place them into the fridge for about 10 minutes to allow them to harden.
Cut off about 1 1/2? pieces, rolling them with your hands to make thin logs and curl up one end to make antennae. Once you have reached your desired shape place them into the fridge for about 10 minutes to allow them to harden.
To finish decorating your bees, Use a dab of frosting to attach the wings and eyes. Use a toothpick to poke two holes in between the eyes and the first stripe. Then stick an antennae in each hole. Paint on a black frosting smile.
Enjoy!

How to Make Modeling Chocolate
Ingredients:
16 ounces chocolate
1/3 cup light corn syrup (add more if needed)
Directions:

Melt chocolate in small saucepan or in the microwave using 30 second intervals.
Allow the chocolate to cool to about 91 degrees, stirring often. If you don’t have a thermometer, test the temperature of the melted chocolate by putting a drop on your finger. It should feel cool. If it’s hot, let it cool longer.
Pour in corn syrup.
Stir slowly until well mixed. This chocolate mixture will become thick very quickly, so be sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl to incorporate all of the melted chocolate.
Pour mixture out onto a flat surface, using powdered sugar if needed to help shape the dough
Knead until glossy and smooth. If your hands are warm us a plastic dough scraper to knead the modeling chocolate.
Wrap the modeling chocolate in plastic wrap and place in a zip top bag or airtight container.

Easy DIY Card ideas, Love Bug Finger Print Card, perfect for Valentines Day, Mothers day ideas, Kids Craft Ideas, Handmade CardsStart by painting your child’s finger with a thin-medium coat of paint. Quickly press it down on the paper to create a finger print.  You can do them all the same color or mix it up as seen in the photo above. Start with the lighter color so you do not have to clean the finger off as mush between prints.

Allow the paint to dry. Then use the sharpie marker to draw faces, arms and legs on them.  Layer on scrapbook paper or cardstock to create a custom card.

Valentine fortune cookies, QUICK AND EASY craft idea. I have got to make these with the kids!!!

Make this years Valentines Day special without breaking the bank.

Did you know you can make paper fortune cookies… for pennies!

Or FREE if you have extra scrapbook paper laying around like I do.

I just use a drinking glass to trace circles on the page.

The bigger the circle the bigger the cookie will be.  I

 find a 3 inch circle works pretty well.

Write your love notes on a small strip of paper and place in the middle, you can fold it in half  to help keep it inside and not sticking out the ends.

Fold the circle in half, but DO NOT crease the end flat.

how to make a fortune cookie.jpg

Put your thumb and your middle finger on the ends, and use your pointer finger gentle press the middle inward.
