When I asked my little guy what kind of Valentine’s Day cards he wanted to make for school his response…tractors! Of course it was, when is it not? When I was searching for tractor cards on-line I came across this cute little tractor mold. Then I thought it would be fun to make a bunch of little chocolate tractors to go along with his tractor Valentine’s Day cards. I have to admit, this was my first time making chocolate candies. They always seemed too hard and time consuming. Hard to do they are not, but they are a bit time consuming. They are worth it though, aren’t those little tractors so cute?! Surprisingly finding tractor Valentine’s Day cards was harder then I thought. Luckily I found this one on etsy from Paper House Designs. She was great to work with and even made up a custom card for me because my little guy was adamant that the tractor be yellow and green. Yes, he is that particular. I’m not sure who he gets that one from…ahem. I purchased these cute miniature boxes months ago from Amazon for another project but they were too small. Now they are the perfect size for holding a couple of tractors. Hope your Valentine’s Day is loads of fun!
