3 Things I do on Valentines Day
- I buy my room mate a giant bag of candy and a flower – even though she won’t eat the candy and gets mad at me that I got her something.
- I still buy valentines cards for my nanny kids
- I wait until the day after to buy ALL THE CHOCOLATE
I’m sure theres more but thats the general census of my life on Valentines day – during the whole season really. I used to hate it because I was single and had no one – until I stopped caring. I love the hearts and the pink and purple, and cute things…. so I just grew to accept that Valentines meant something different to me than the typical lovey dovey stuff. And I’m cool with that. I freaking LOVE it!
This year, I wanted to make some fun Edible Glitter Valentines Pops for my valentines. They’re super easy and super customizeable so lets get going!
Edible Glitter Valentines Pops
Cost: $15 or less – makes a ton!
Time: 1 hour including cooling time
Let me preface this by saying that this project too several tries. I tried using some colored sanding sugar… but it made the lips look diseased. And disco dust just makes me nervous since its technically not edible. And then I tapped the molds too many times and sent the actual glitter bits back into the chocolate, so ya know… practice makes perfect.
MAKE IT: Printable Galentines Coloring Page
Start by making sure your mold is clean of all debris. Then sprinkle some glitter into each well.
Melt your chocolate! Place 1/2 cup white candy bark into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave in 20 second bursts until completely melted.
Add your food coloring. This will cause the chocolate to sieze up a little but thats okay. Add a teaspoon of coconut oil. Its okay if its solid, it’ll melt. Keep adding coconut oil until your chocolate has smoothed out and is just the smallest bit runny.
Now for the hard(-ish) part. Gently spoon the melted chocolate into each cavity. Gently tap it a few times. Like 3 times. If you tap too much the glitter floats back into the chocolate and you can’t see it very well.
Insert your sticks into the holes and place a bit more chocolate over them in the back. Place in the fridge to cool for 20 minutes.
Pop them out of the molds and repeat until you have as many as you need!
1 block of candy bark makes about 10 pops.
