Quick and Easy Dollar Tree Valentine's Day Treats

Dollar Tree Valentines treat gumball machine

Never say never. Case in point: I know I said that I don't "do" Valentine's Day. But perhaps I was a bit hasty when I said that. Read on to find out why.

Last year I actually DID create a Valentine's Day vignette as part of a blogging group challenge. Would I have made one on my own? No. But I did make one. AND I blogged about it. In that post I briefly mentioned that I filled some small plastic "gumball machines" with Valentine's treats. And I thought I'd let you know that this year you can not only get the candy at Dollar Tree, but you can also get the gumball machines there, too!  (I've not been compensated in any way by Dollar Tree although I wish I could say that I was!)

The small, round, red, pink and white candies that fit in them perfectly are called "Sixlets" which are (no surprise here) only one dollar a bag. The bag is filled with individually wrapped portions of this chocolatey almost-malted-milk ball-tasting candy.

Just cut the little bags open and...

Last year I also filled one with Conversation Hearts. You can also pickup those at Dollar Tree as well. It's a one stop shop!

Do these little gumball machines bring back memories for you? 
They sure do for me!
I just love their retro vintage vibe!

And just think, there are so many sweet treats that would fit into these cute little machines. M&M's, Lemonheads, Red Hots (great for Valentine's Day), actual gumballs and the list goes on and on. They would make great teacher's gifts, too! Run - don't walk - to your local Dollar Tree and pick yourself up some miniature gumball machines and a favorite sweet treat of your choice. Your Valentine will be very glad you did!

  Well, that's it until next time!
