“Writing love notes,” some say “…are for high school students.” Way back in time, inside candy wrappers were love and caring notes: “Kiss me, I miss you, I love you… and a lot more.” They’re chocolates, hard candies, mints, sour balls and mallows everyone loves to eat.
But did you know that even adults are fascinated with these love-note craze? It’s the same attending a wedding reception and everyone in the party becomes excited from the notes in the cake flowers, like “You’ll soon meet your prince charming,” or ” Next week prepare for a romantic dinner.”
Some teenagers use candy wrappers to make scribbles and give to friend, designed with stickers and with real candies and chocolates.
Loot bags come filled with messages and notes of specialized posters given during parties both for the young kids and the Mommy’s. These are packages that culminate a gathering and occasions.
How to write love notes and make candies/chocolates:
1. Love Notes
Write from your heart’s desire.
Get inspired with people, books, and life.
You can print from a computer, or write long hand.
Tuck notes with candies/container safely.
Be sure to make surprising effects.
You can roll powdered milk with some amount of condensed milk, then sugar. Mould in a tray, cut and wrap.
You can also make into small balls, then roll into sugar.
Make “Yema” balls. Boil a can of condensed milk around an hour (estimate till condensed milk turns brown)
Form balls. This is ready to eat. Or if you want, dip into newly cooked caramelized sugar. Wait till candy hardens.
Bars can be cooked in low heat or microwave (as directed in the chocolate bar baking time). Quickly pour chocolate into molder. Wait till chocolate hardens.
Or: you can have marshmallows, cornflakes, cookies, strawberries, nuts in your chocolates before putting it to molder.
These are your personalized candies and foodie treats that could go with the love-note you’ve created.
However, if you are busy and cannot cook and prepare the candies and chocolates; varied sweets are around supermarkets and stores. Just take your pick of M&M’s, LifeSavers, sour balls, Hersheys, marshmallows, chocolate pies, cookies, gummies – and attach the note that you’ve written for your friend on a card or gift tag.
What more? Halloween is coming, Christmas is coming, New Year and Valentine. Sweets never go unwanted they’re sought and will make special gifts for friends, families, and everyone special. Please don’t forget to share…
