I am in love with these hearts.

Rather I *heart* these hearts. I amuse myself. Sigh

These sugar hearts are super simple and fun to make – kids can help! I also will list the items I used and link for you to snag them to make this treat very easy to make

These hearts are PERFECT for Valentine’s Day – serve them with coffee instead of sugar cubes. HOW Romantic πŸ™‚

One thing I must tell you is that these hearts are pretty hardy. Once they are set you can handle them with ease – think of them as a sugar cube ( which is basically what they are πŸ˜‰ )

I actually did an Amazon order for this recipe for the mini heart cutter and the gel food coloring ( you can pick these goodies up at Michaels)

One funny story from making this recipe:

Once you cut the hearts out of the sugar ( which is rolled out) you are suppose to leave it for 2 – 3 hours to set

BUT I wanted to snap the picture before the natural light was gone so I put the hearts outside since it is around low 40s here in Portland, OR

I checked 20 minutes later and they were ready for their photo πŸ™‚

I had a hard time trying to think how to snap the picture for recipe but my dad helped me πŸ™‚ Here he is trying to figure out the arrangement πŸ™‚

This is the color I got from using ONLY 1 drop of the gel food dye! I am pretty impressed – though the light in the picture above make them look really pink not too sure what happened there

Easy Sugar Hearts Recipe



  • 2 tsp of water
  • ½ Cup of White Sugar
  • 1 Drop of Pink Gel Food Coloring


  1. In a mixing bowl combine water, sugar, and food coloring
  2. Mix very well - make sure the color is completely even and the sugar mixture has an almost dough like consistency
  3. Roll out the sugar mixture onto parchment paper - the thickness is up to you
  4. Dip your heart cutter into water ( I found this helpful for cutting cleanly ) place the heart onto the parchment - keep cutting till you have as many as you want
  5. Wait 2 - 3 hours and let them firm up
  6. Place in a air tight container if you want to keep them for a while or use right away - makes about 20 hearts
  7. Enjoy !
