I learned to make Swedish Paper Heart Baskets as a child. While I’ve seen them with a little bit of wheat tucked in them as a Christmas tree ornament, for Valeninte's Day we filled them with Conversation and cinnamon hearts. Go to http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/Heartbasket.shtml for the heart basket directions.
The Conversation Heart candies were first produced in 1902. This year, the Necco Company has made changes to the hearts. They have all new sayings as well as new flavors. The candy is also softer and doesn’t taste as good as the old formula. Learn more about this Valentine treat at http://www.necco.com/OurBrands/Default.asp?BrandID=8
