Valentine's Day is usually all about THE one you love but this year I wanted to make sure the people that give me support, love and friendship some treats too.  Over the last couple of years it has become very clear to me that friends are family too.  One of my favorite quotes, I even had a tattoo of it, is "Friends by Chance.  Sisters by Choice."  Valentine's Day is a day all about celebrating love so lets remember those special friendships this year too.  I decided that I wanted to make some special homemade candies for my friends and coworkers and give them a little treat.

Directions:

1.  Invest in a silicon mini heart mold.  Cover the bottom of each mini heart mold with sprinkles and a couple M&M's® Red Velvet.  

2.  In a microwave safe pour-able dish, I used a large glass measuring cup, melt the white chocolate.  Heat on defrost for 30 seconds and stir well, continue to heat in 15 second increments stir each time until completed melted.

Once my M&M's® Red Velvet White Chocolate Candies were ready I started to make the Valentine's Day Celebrate Friendship Treat Bags.  I put 4-5 homemade candies in each bag and for some Milk Chocolate goodness I decided to add some DOVE® Promises.  Now this treat bag will make any friend see the love!  The M&M's® Red Velvet totally adds a new twist on the traditional white chocolate candy.
