The prettiest Valentines EVER

Okay, maybe not ever, but definitely the prettiest I've ever made. Long story short, my friends Chivan and Laurie came over last night and taught me how to make peanut butter chocolate balls. So, teachers and others got these adorable (and really tasty) Valentines. Yum!

Funny side note. When Laurie came over and asked how many I wanted to make, I told her just the usual sized batch. She told me it wouldn't make much, because they usually got eaten before they could be made. This is not my idea of "not much". Not that I am complaining.

And, we did also make cute Valentines for the kids' classes. I got on a sucker making kick a few years ago, and I have LOTS of sucker molds, so this is what the kids did this year. For homework, Joy had to write her classmate's names on theirs. I didn't really want to go through the pain of forcing the issue much farther than the 24 names she already had to write, so I just had her write her name, and I scanned them in and printed them out with her name already "written" on them. Cheating? Well, her teacher didn't say she had to write her name on them, just their names on them!
