Sugar,Water,Icing,Red food coloring,Heart shape mold,Wax paper,Small candy,Small clear bags or plastic wrap
Put 2 or 3 cups of sugar in a medium bowl and add a tsp. of water. Keep adding small amounts of water until sugar becomes damp and sticky. " Do not let sugar get runny or very wet". Add 5 drops of red food coloring. Mix well. Take a plastic heart shape mold "get one that stores sell with candy in it, they work great." Place damp sugar in the mold and pack it to the top. Gently take a spoon and scrape out center for your candy. Leave enough sugar for edges of the heart. Slowly turn over onto wax paper. Let dry over night. Turn the sugar heart over the next morning and let dry for 2 or 3 more hours. Decorate edges with icing and place desired candy in middle. These hearts will get very hard and will not break easily. They are great to give as gifts to your class for valentine's day.
