18 Things To Do With Conversation Hearts

There are a few candies with which I have a love-hate relationship. Peeps, for one thing. I mean, who even EATS those things? And yet, I buy them every year and try them, thinking the holiday isn’t complete without a little box of sugary, yellow chicks sitting on my countertop. At Christmas, there are candy canes. I’ve never seen a child eat an entire candy cane. They just end up sucked to a death-sharp tip, sticking to the back of the couch or the underside of a fleece blanket or the exterior of a sock. Ewwww. Then, there are conversation hearts. I always want them. The moment I see them in the store, I feel a flutter of joy. And yet, I buy them, bring them home, try to chew through their rock-hard exterior, and wonder what I’m supposed to do with an entire bag of the things. Thankfully, a good number of clever bloggers have created ADORABLE recipes that make clever use of conversation hearts. If you’re looking for a way to use up that bag of chatty candies, look no further than these 18 ways to use conversation hearts!
