Love is Tweet!

Being Valentine's Day, I thought I would make some special treats for the birds.
I try to  always have bird feed on hand.  I enjoy watching the birds
I decided to make some special treats for them.  Heart shaped bird seed ornaments, which you can hang on a tree or post.
Perfectly safe and the birds will really enjoy them.


3/4 cup Birdseed, I bought my bag at Target for under $10.00

1 small packet of Know Gelatin


1/4 cup of water

Heart shaped Whoopie Pie Pan

In a saucepan, add the gelatin and the water together.
Simmer until dissolved. 
Cool slighty

Add the Birdseed to the cooled pan.  Mix until the Birdseed
is thoroughly mixed.

I then filled the heart shaped whoopie pie pan half-way.
I added a piece of twine in a loop.
Fill the rest of the cavity with mire Birdseed mixture.  
Press down to flatten.
Use the back of a spoon.

 Let set up!  They pop out of the pan easy.
I popped mine out after 2 hours.

It's best to let it dry thoroughly.  3 days.
You can hang them on a dowel somewhere.

These are also great wedding favors.
I quadrupled this recipe to make alot.

Here's some labels for you.

My husband and I are on a diet, so NO chocolates for us.
  We are going to see a movie and come back and have a salad. 
 Have a wonderful Valentine's Day.
Enjoy this special day with your loved ones.
