Today I decided to make some Valentine's Day candies that I'd seen in Parents magazine with Genevieve. The recipe had easy ingredients, and they looked so pretty:
Um, yeah, well...MY Valentine's mints have a bit more character, shall we say?

But they were my last nine pieces so it was a classic case of too little, too late.
Consider this your warning, that if you get some Valentine's treats delivered to your door sometime between now and next Monday, they may be a bit lacking in beauty. But they do taste good.
Oh, and also? Remind me next year to maybe not make homemade Valentine's candies.
