Then I cut the star-centers out with a heart cutter. Originally I planned on throwing these out, but then I ate a couple and realized that as long as the seeds were removed, this inner tough portion was not offensive. If the kids didn't want them- I would eat them!
These little cuties are what I woke up to! I placed a number of them in a clear treat bag and tied them with an apple-green curling ribbon and that was it! The kids got a kick out of them- they were so pretty and yummy! Sweets for my sweethearts!!
