While candy may not be the healthiest thing to eat, I still can’t resist candy for Valentine’s Day. Especially if the candy for Valentine’s Day has some form of chocolate and peanut butter in them.
I mean chocolate and peanut butter gifted for Valentine’s Day is tops on my list. But still, candy, flowers and more can be so costly for this one day.
So, I am all for making my own candy here for myself, my husband and my kids, too for Valentine’s Day.
