Avoid etiquette blunders and tell your loved ones how you really feel by making your
own homemade conversation hearts. They’re surprisingly easy to make, just as sweet as the
store-bought brands, and you have the freedom to say what you want—whether it’s sweet, funny, or confessional.

Get your loved ones talking with these sweet, homemade conversation hearts made by using a
stand mixture and added unflavored gelatin, boiling water, vanilla extract, salt, corn syrup, and
whisking till smooth. Add confectioner’s sugar at intervals using the paddle attachment and mix.
The doughy mixture gets spread on a cutting board and kneaded. Slice into sections to color and
flavor. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter and leave on a sheet to set. Food coloring markers make the statements on the finished candies.
