Military Inspired Conversation Hearts
I loved conversation heart candies when I was a kid. Here is a homemade version we created with a military theme. Imagine your solider getting these cute candies in a care package. YES!!!!
What you will need.
Gum paste (you can use already made gum paste in a tub or in powder form. We purchased in powdered form and follow directions on bag to make paste).
Gel coloring (we used yellow, pink, green and purple)
Flavoring (we used lemon, watermelon, and peppermint)
Small heart cutter
Edible ink pens
Measure out about 1/2 cup of gum paste.
Sprinkle powdered sugar on your work surface so gum paste does not stick to it.
Knead gum paste for 30 seconds
Add 5-8 drops of flavoring, knead to combine flavor.
Add 1-2 drops of food coloring, knead until color is throughout gum paste.
Using a rolling pin, roll out gum paste to 1/4-1/2 inch thick.
Using small heart cutter, cut out hearts and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Let dry for 48 hours.
Using edible ink pen write message on hearts.
