I was recently sent quite a few boxes of Sweethearts.  But not just any Sweethearts.  The new Red, White & You Sweethearts. 

This new line of Sweethearts launched just in time for 4th of July and are to honor America’s troops and celebrate America’s patriotism.

I couldn’t just eat all of the candy that was sent to me.   Instead my task was to share some creative ways you could use Sweethearts, not just for 4th of July, but year-round.

So this is my first idea … I will be back with more over the next couple of days.

Sweethearts Candy

Road Trip Day 1 030_picnik

These are super easy to make. 

Road Trip Day 1 033_picnik Ingredients:

  • Candy mold
  • Candy melts (red, white & blue)
  • Sweethearts – Red, White & You
  • Vanilla icing

To make:

Follow the directions on the candy mold for making the candies … which is very easy, basically you melt the candy, pour into the mold and set in the refrigerator.

Once set, add a little bit of icing to the top and pop on a Sweetheart.

P.S.  The candy melts and candy mold were purchased from Michael’s.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the company for supporting the troops.  They have teamed up with the USO (United Service Organizations) to send the Red, White & You Sweethearts in care packages to American troops, both here in the U.S. and overseas.  As a military wife, I’m all for promoting companies who support the troops.

Disclosure: Sweethearts were provided by Necco.
