Valentine Candies with Essential Oils

Happy Valentine's Day my friends. If you are looking for an easy, little, quick treat or gift for family or friends this is the perfect candies to make.  They are fun and festive and don't take much time at all!

  • White chocolate or almond bark
  • M&Ms
  • Sprinkles
  • 2-3 drops of your favorite Essential Oil such as Peppermint or Wild Orange. (optional)

  • Double Boiler
  • Silicone Candy Molds

I don't have an actual double boiler, so I improvise my own.  Fill up the larger pan with water and sit the smaller pan inside.  Put the chocolate in the smaller pan.  You will need to keep an eye on it and stir it frequently so that the chocolate doesn't burn.

While the chocolate is melting, you can prepare your candy trays.  Add in sprinkles and candy.  I did a few different options.  Colored sprinkles with M&Ms, red sprinkles, just M&Ms, red sprinkles and M&Ms, and even just plain chocolate.

Once you have all the sprinkles and candies in place, carefully spoon the chocolate in the molds.  Tap the full molds on the counter several times to settle chocolate and release any air bubbles.

Put in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes.  When they solid, pop them out.  You can put them on a plate or in a cellophane bag.  I found these cute silicone heart-shaped muffin/cupcake liners and Hobby Lobby and put a few candies in each.

Wrap in a cellophane bag, tie a bow, and you have a cute little Valentine gift.
