First, put a tablespoon of corn syrup in a saucepan and add two teaspoons of unflavored gelatin and one half cup water. Place it for about 30 seconds to a minute on medium heat while constantly stirring to dissolve the gelatin. Then, pour the mixture in an electric mixer and put it on low setting.
While mixing, gradually put confectioner’s sugar one cup at a time. You may need about 2 lbs of confectioner’s sugar for the whole process. Keep a little amount of the sugar as you will need it when kneading your candy dough.
When the dough is ready, sprinkle some confectioner’s sugar on your work surface and carefully get the dough from the mixer. Start folding, turning and kneading the dough. Then, make a well at the center to put some flavoring and coloring and mix.
Once done, run a rolling pin to flatten the candy dough a little. Now, get a heart shaped cookie cutter and cut the dough into candies. Let it sit for 24 hours and the next day, you’ll get to taste your sweet Valentine candies made for your partner.
To make the Valentine candies more personalized, you can use an edible pen and just write whatever you like on them. If you like this idea, don’t forget to share okay?!
