Sugar hearts

Happy (almost) Valentine's Day!

Sugar hearts are perfect for plunking into a hot mug of tea. 

Idea from here.

* * * * *

Make your own to share with your valentine

Mix 2 teaspoons of water with 1 cup of sugar.

Measure out teaspoonfuls (or however much you prefer for one cup of tea) of the sugar mixture into candy molds or decorative ice cube trays.

Press the sugar down into the mold, then pop out the sugar heart and let dry overnight on wax paper.

Store in a glass jar because these look so lovely displayed!

Want more ideas?  I'm loving these:


  1. Great links. Cuter than cute sugar.

  2. Allison..! I just got your eye pillows (two!! you kind woman, you!) They're just lovely... and I'm already feeling all relaxed just having them sitting right next to me as I type this...they smell oh-so-good...! You made my day. Thank you.


  3. Your blog's just full of sugar and spice and everything nice. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

  4. Such a great idea, I'll have to try it. Great project links, too. Thanks for sharing!

  5. such wonderful inspiration! thank you for including me. you have a lovely space here.

  6. I like so many of these ideas! The little heart sugars are so cute. I have a lot of chocolate molds but never thought to use them this way. Thanks for passing on the idea! Let me know if the flannel over the water bottle makes it stay warmer longer. My son has taken to sleeping with his for "growing pains." Maybe I should make one!

  7. Thank you for sharing, lots of inspirations.
