Sugar Free Valentines Package
My sister and I absolutely love Valentine's day. We are crazy in love with it so I decided to send her a Valentine's package. She's diabetic so it all had to be sugar free.
For the candied nuts I bought this Russell Stover candy box so I could use it for the nuts. I sacrificed and ate the candy. Now I need to decorate the box top.
Gather some fun, crafty valentine-ish items. I used heart doilies, cupcake liners, a vintage inspired valentine and a cupcake topper that I broke the stick off of.
I glued the cupcake liners on the bottom because they're cute and they cover up the "Russell Stover" name on the box.
Then I added the doily. Next the Valentine and
lastly the little tissue heart. That's it. I was done just like that, and it's so cute.
I decided to embellish the inside too, so I added some doilies and a cute sticker that I picked up at Walmart on clearance.
I put the candied nuts in a baggie and put them in the box. Before I mail it I will tape the sides so it stays closed.
Recipe for Candied Nuts
I picked up a valentine's box for $2 at walmart for the cookies and other sugar free goodies I found. I needed something sturdy to put the goodies in. Hopefully they won't
be squashed by the time they get to her.
Recipe for Sugar Free Cut Out Cookies
You can get sugar free chocolate marshmallow hearts at your local drug store. I also found some awesome "Valor" sugar free milk chocolate bars at TJ Maxx.
I also added some sugar free frosting available at the market in the baking aisle & some great Vintage valentines that you can get on Amazon.
The end result is so cute! What a fun, delicious surprise for someone who loves Valentine's day and is sugar intolerant!
