Sweet treats

Valentine's Day in elementary school was fun: Making mailboxes from paper plates, construction paper and glitter; buying Valentines with your favorite cartoon character; eating cupcakes with pink frosting.
I'm a bit nostalgic on this cold, gray day.
What's your favorite Valentine's Day treat? Conversation hearts or Red Hots? (I never liked conversation hearts. They taste chalky.) Did your mom make heart-shaped pancakes?
Mmm, nowadays, my only weakness is dark chocolate. But oh, what I wouldn't give for a cupcake!

My birthday is just a few days before Valentine's Day so my whole life it's been tied to the holiday. Growing up my cake was ALWAYS heart shapped and the treats I took to school were always V-Day related.

I've always hated the conversation hearts also... no taste whatsoever! I guess my favorite has always been cupcakes! (not chocolage though, I gate chocolate!
