  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. You may see a lot of liquid around the edge still. Once you remove them from the oven it should quickly reabsorb.

  11. Use a small spatula to thinly coat each piece of cake. (You can use a butter knife if you don’t have a spatula). Once coated place on parchment paper to harden. Optional: Add some heart shaped sprinkles to the top while they are still gooey.
  12. Allow the candy to harden completely before removing from the parchment paper. You can place them in the fridge to speed up the hardening process. They should be hard in 30 minutes or less.
  13. Place in individual cellophane bags or display on a plate. Be sure to store them in a cool dry place as the candy coating will melt if they get too warm.
