Scrolling through Facebook the other day, I saw a post shared by one of my lovely friends for a delicious Valentine's Day snack. I immediately saved the post and decided I wanted to makea similar treat for Daphnie's class, for anyone that doesn't know me, I'm always altering recipes to make them more my style or to my taste.
