Valentine Cracker Candy Stealing Our Hearts

Valentine cracker candy. A sweet and salty confection perfect for your love. I got all my ingredients at Walmart.

I was really sick last week, and sent my husband to market to pick up some supplies for me… you know the usual sick supplies everyone wants when sickness strikes: tissue, 7-up, flu medicine, and saltine crackers. My illness was so bad I had no appetite for anything except sleep. I never even opened the box of saltines.

Fast forward a few days into coming back to life. I realized I never touched the crackers. I remembered a cracker candy video I had seen over Christmas time, and how bad I wanted to try it then but you know how the holidays are….everything is a whirlwind. In my still partial sick dizziness I thought “Let me turn that christmas candy recipe into a Valentine treat instead.” Within minutes I was making Valentine cracker candy with the crackers I had leftover from when I was sick. Luckily I keep a well stocked pantry and had all the other ingredients on hand. Once it was made… I thought this candy is so crunchy good…. it’s stealing my heart.
