Appetizers are one of my favorite foods. I'll admit it, I get bored easily, so having several smaller items to nosh on makes me a happy nibbler.

If life is like a box of chocolates, why not create your own choices. :D  Happy Valentine's Day~
You can create your own chocolates with a few steps that are so easy, even a toddler will enjoy making a family treat. The choices of what you add to your chocolates can be unique and simple... ...or as evolved and inventive as you prefer. In fact, why not make a party of the whole event?
