I {Anatomical} Heart You

Happy Valentine's Day to all my dear readers.I {anatomical} heart all of you.

I {anatomical} heart you., originally uploaded by passitonplates.

Last year at my day job, we exchanged valentines. The treat that I brought in last year was pretty well received, so I think I'll make this year a repeat of last year's treat.

First, I went to a restaurant supply store and got narrow poly bags that are food-safe and have a zipper seal. A hundred 3x5 bags were only about $2 and I have a LOT left over. (Incidentally, these are the same type of bags I use when packaging Pass It On Plates Lite.)

Next, I went to the bulk section of my grocery store (I love Winco!) and bought a couple pounds of candy jelly hearts. I poured 1/2c of candy into each bag and zipped it shut.

Last, image was printed on card stock to make a foldover type of card that was stapled over the zipped top of each bag.

It looked great and everyone was talking about it.

So since I did red jelly hearts last year, what kind of candy should I use this year?

(Yes, I'm kind of a dork. I can't do anything normal. (Proud of it, too!) )

  1. I really like the valentine M&Ms. Although, this would be a bit more costly than the Winco bulk hearts. I am sure whatever you choose will be well received. Happy Valentines!
