Recipe by Mom2Rose

These would be perfect for Valentine's Day or Christmas or a heart/love themed party! Very easy to make! NOTE: 30 minute cooking time is actually cooling time for candies to set. ENJOY!

My daughter made a batch of these for a Valentine's favor. She used white almond bark and then red sprinkles on top. Adorable!
