What Should (Candy) Hearts Say?

Those chalky Valentine heart candies don’t have much to say. Unless “Be Mine” is exactly the sentiment you’re trying to get across.

The genius minds at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories subvert upgrade this tradition. Here are four refreshingly different ways to present your loved ones with more unique candy heart sentiments.

  1. Using the traditional Valentine candies, simply sand off the unoriginal original phrases. Then use a food marker or rubber stamp to write your own messages. The possibilities are only limited by the size.
  2. Consider a more metaphorical message. Carefully arrange a whole bag of candy hearts into one heap resembling a large heart and bake it in the oven. It will fuse together in a bizarre you-melt-me sort of way. Unless you don’t follow the instructions exactly, in which case your heart will break before it ever cools down completely.
  3. Use those candy hearts to write your sentiments where everyone can see them. On the sidewalk. These candies not only taste like calcium supplements, they also work as somewhat usable chalk although the colors (disappointingly) aren’t very noticeable.
  4. Get inspired. Make your own shortbread cookie version of these candies. They’re larger, tastier, and provide a much larger surface area for your message.

  1. I need to do the shortbread ones! What a great compilation of Evil Mad Scientist’s adventures with the conversation hearts. I’ve always loved those hearts, in a retro kind of way, but of course they’re an acquired taste 🙂
