well official love day will be here very soon.
so i have another sweet for your sweetie that'll work with really anyone who is just your sweetie for your life,
for the day or for the minute.
i mean, do you want to give something to somebody but not in a romantic way without all the "you complete me" or
"your eyes are like diamonds"
or "i'd die without you" kinda treat?
what if that someone's your really nice neighbor, or
piano teacher, or your kid's buddy?
no worries, this will work and you can make a bunch
to spread around.
what i'm talking about is a hug.
a BIG bear hug.
edible ones at that.
with the betty crocker brownie pack mix, i was able to whip up 12 of these without painting mason jars, gathering baskets & painting them red, or cutting out a bunch of cardstock hearts.
then gather the bear parts.
pictured are melts to use for candy glue but almond bark and melted chocolate chips work too.
now put them to work.
it's much easier to attach the arms and heart when your brownie is cooled or even better yet, chilled in the fridge. the chocolate glue sets up a lot faster to hold the arms and heart in place.
oh and those arm cookies?
let's take a closer look.
i just cut off both ends and ate the middle part.
ok now where were we?
i drew the little smiley eyes on tiny white sprinkles.
so that was that.
i think your sweeties will love this bear hug
on valentine's day.
on second thought,
i think it might be a little hard to give these kinda hugs away on account of how yummy they are...?
