The items arrived in a red box with a Happy Valentine’s Day sticker!
The kit shows up bundled neatly together under some cute red polka dots tissue.
It is secured using another Gramma In A Box sticker.
All the items come in separate plastic containers.
The card has a message from Gramma Terry! This month’s box is all about Valentine Treats.
At the back is a list of all the items from the box and the items you need from home.
Every month, 3 projects are included in the box. This month, we are going to do Valentine Candy Cane Hearts, Crispy Caramel Bites, and Valentine Cookies. Each of the cards has step by step instructions with a few images.
Featured on the other side of the card is the list of ingredients for each recipe.
Everything in our February 2020 box!
First Project: Valentine Candy Cane Hearts. For this project, the box provided melting chocolate, candy canes, popsicle sticks, sprinkles, and conversation hearts. From home, you’d need toothpick or knife, spoon, and a microwave-safe bowl.
Before anything else, you must melt the chocolate discs in the microwave! When it’s ready, you can start by laying the candy canes on wax paper. Two candy canes must be facing each other to form a heart shape. Then, put a popsicle stick in the middle of each candy cane heart.
Next, put some melted chocolate in the gap between the candy canes! A toothpick or knife may be used to ensure that the chocolate reaches the edges.
The last step is to add sprinkles and conversation hearts! Then, wait for at least 5 minutes before serving or eating them, just to allow the melted chocolate to set.
My kids’ candy cane hearts came out really nicely!
Second Project: Crispy Caramel Bites. For the next project, we used the crispy rice cereals, caramel balls, sprinkles, paper Valentine cups, and the remaining melted chocolate from the first project.
The first step is to put the caramel balls into the paper cups. Set them aside and then mix the cereals with the melted chocolate in a bowl. When you’ve mixed them well, it’s time to put a spoonful on each paper cup, making sure that the balls are covered.
For the final touch, add sprinkles and conversation hearts!
Look at our crispy caramel bites! They’re so cute and, of course, tasty!
Third Project: Valentine Cookies. We’re on to our favorite part, cookie decorating! For this project, we got plain cookies, 3 colors of frosting (red, pink, and white), and sprinkles.
My daughter started right away with her heart-shaped cookie! She traced it with the red frosting first, followed by the pink and white frosting.
She added some sprinkles for the final touches. That cookie looks really yummy, doesn’t it?
My son’s abstract design for his cookie turned out great! There are pink frosting swirls, sprinkles, and a pastel orange conversation heart that says “CUTIE.”
You can also use a toothpick to even out the frosting or to create other designs.
Since it’s Valentine’s, my daughter put the word “Love” on another cookie using white frosting!
These cookies are too pretty! We just waited for them to set for 15 minutes, then they’re all good to go!
As always, my kids enjoyed decorating the cookies. It’s really a fun way of unleashing their creativity.
We enjoyed munching on these right after, but these also make great gifts!
What a lovely bunch of Valentines-themed snacks!
Gramma In A Box projects are always fun and enjoyable for my kids! Doing edible crafts like these help them get creative. All the ingredients and instructions are provided in each box, so all we really have to do is gather on a table and do them. The best part is that they can munch on their final products after! What a sweet reward! If you’re looking for an activity that you can do as a family, this is a great choice! They’ll surely give you something new to look forward to every month!
