Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a love for hot tea. My nana has always (and still does) drink it often so I guess you could say I picked it up from her. When I was young, my hot tea concoction was basically half black tea, half french vanilla creamer. I would drink it from little porcelain teacups that my nana still has to this day. I guess I’ve just always loved the femininity that the whole concept suggests. I still drink hot tea on the regular, like at least once a day, so I pretty much have my routine down. When I saw these little sugar hearts I knew they’d be a fun addition. Not only are they perfect for Valentines Day, but they add that preciousness to the already dainty idea. They were so easy to make – it took me about 20 minutes. Plus, you can make any desired shape/color.
What you’ll need:
Step 1: combine 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 tsp water, food coloring and gel — Then mix
Step 2: If you are using a cookie cutter, press flat on parchment paper then cut out shapes (the sugar should stay in the cookie cutter so you’ll have to gently push out the sugar), then place them aside. If you are using a mold, pack sugar into the mold, you can remove them almost immediately or wait a few minutes till they are slightly hardened.
Step 3: Wait for them to dry (it takes about 2 hours for them to fully harden but you can use them before then. Enjoy!

Ps. Here’s how I currently drink my hot tea:
