  • Conversation hearts are a fairly simple candy to make, but the Valentine treats come alive when the sweet nothings are personalized with the use of food-safe markers. DIY bonus: The homemade versions are a whole lot tastier than the store-bought variety when flavored using your favorite extracts.

  • Once all the powdered sugar has been added, continue to beat until the candy dough reaches a thick, fluffy consistency. Dough will be sticky, but when poked, the indentation will remain.

  • Divide dough into as many pieces as you’d like colors and roll into balls. Poke an indentation into the center of each ball and add a few drops of flavored extract and food coloring to each, then knead each ball until color is even.

  • Using heart-shaped cookie cutters, stamp hearts from the dough. Although they can be made any size, a 1 ½”-1 ¾” candy is closest the the familiar candy size. We used both 1 ¾” and 2 ½” cutters to create our homemade hearts.

  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and arrange the candy on the tray and set aside in a cool location to dry. Depending on the size and thickness, candy should be ready to decorate in about 24 hours.
