Valentine's Day Gifts...thanks, Pinterest!

Saw this on Pinterest. {A freebie at the end of this post if interested.}

Figured, EASY.
Got my molds in the dollar section of Target.  Gotta love Target.  These molds were sold in a set of two for $2.50.  Well, OK.

My son helped...he had a ball.  He was able to pound things and not get in trouble. Imagine.



Please ignore the fact that he needs a haircut. Badly.

Pound away and then add to molds.

Put in an oven preheated to 230 degrees and "bake" for 15 minutes.  

Once cooled, pop those babies out.
I strongly suggest you don't try to bake real food in these later....hehe.
Here's what they look like.  Not quite what I saw on Pinterest, but whatever. {Sigh}


At least it wasn't as far off as this:

How hilarious is this?


Here's the finished product:


I created that "card" and you can pick it up here at my TpT store for FREE along with a few other freebies in the same pack.  

Enjoy...maybe yours will turn out better.

  1. I still think they are cute! The Cookie Monster cupcakes made me laugh so loud, that my hubby came over and asked what I was looking at! He then laughed as well :)

  3. I did this on an electric griddle in my classroom when I taught matter to show how a solid can change to a liquid and back. The kids LOVED it! I melted them in aluminum muffin thingys (name escapes me...ugh) and I see them coloring with them every now and then. They came out looking like multi-colored Reese cups :) Fun stuff!
