rice krispies valentine jewelry box

ok so when i made these they totally came out different than what i had envisioned.
seems like that is happening a lot around here lately.

anyway, let's see what maniacal thing i created this time.


make the tops of the hearts with about 1/2 of one krispie bar and smash it down into the mold so it's about 1/4 inch or so thick. follow the same directions for the tops as you did the bottoms.

now let's cover them in candy melt.

so decorate the tops any way you want. 
i did it using a toothpick and vanilla bark cuz i stinkeroo at piping.

now comes the interesting part.
yup.
i put real earrings in there.
 my original idea was to make candy earrings or jewelry but heck o'mighty i couldn't get them to fit so i got 100% annoyed, threw them away and said to myself, 
"i should just put real ones in there for cryin' out loud."

then eureka! 
i said 
"I SHOULD PUT REAL ONES IN THERE FOR CRYIN' OUT LOUD!"
so i did.
and rings would work and necklaces too if you wrap them up small enough.

oh and use food safety bags so you won't poison the person you give these to cuz i think that would kinda screw up the love part of this.
oh happy day when you get some jewelry in an edible valentine box! 
hehe
(oh and don't forget to link up your valentine fun here!

  1. Lisa,
    Your edible boxes are adorable! I wish you posted a photo of your edible jewelry (even if it didn't fit in the box) because I'm sure it's extremely creative like everything else you do :)

  3. Amen, girls! Sugar over jewelry! Except diamonds. Or anything my grandkids give me. But other than that, sugar! OK. These scream adorable. As I think I told you before, I'm having my Scrabble group here in February and these just have to make the scene! Stop already!!! We are going to be so busy eating all your goodie ideas, we won't have time to play! Oh, who cares? I usually lose anyway! But I have to ask.....you said these came out different than you envisioned. What DID you envision?? Your BBFF, Dona

    1. haha! maybe just a goodie day will be in your future? you make me SMILE my BBFF! my original idea was to make candy jewelry that the heart would serve as a locket but dang, it just looked dumb. so i thought i'll make candy earrings but that didn't work out. so thus this idea was born. you can just put regular candy like m&m's in it like a normal person too but as you know, my mind does not think "normal" all the time-lol! best of luck at your scrabble game! Dona for the WIN! :)

  6. Awww...so sweet, in every way! There's something so special about a little box nestled in your hand with a little treasure inside. Was thinking the idea is usable at a bridal shower too, for favors....just pipe a little rose on each one - well, YOU would "just pipe a little rose on each one" - I would pipe "the incredible frosting blob" on them!
