No Bake No Cook Valentine Sweethearts

Its been a week since Hubby presented me with a DSLR camera for valentine’s day and it would be an understatement if I say that I had been obsessed with the new toy. I’m still getting used to it and had been practicing like crazy but unfortunately my laptop died on me. This is what I say is perfect timing. It is going to take another 2 or 3 days for me to get my laptop back and I had no plans of blogging until Hubby stepped in and lent me his laptop despite being very busy and you know why because he loved this sweethearts that I made for him. Don’t they say the way to man’s heart is thru his tummy and at least it proved to be correct in my case.

A few years back both of us got an opportunity to attend a launch party of a travel agency who specialize in overseas travel packages and though I do not like to attend parties or weddings I had no other option but to go as the person happened to be our very good friend. But despite my fear about a flashy, over crowded party it turned out to be well organized and I actually loved the ambiance of the whole thing. They served some lovely hors d’oeuvres and I got the idea for this recipe when I wanted to go for an easy recipe for the Valentine Day. Actually this is not even a recipe but just to give you all an idea if you do not want to go in for or have the time for elaborate preparations.This will also be a fun project for kids to take to school.
