I used to make Crayon Cupcakes on a regular basis when I was a kid, melting down the little remaining nubs of spent crayons into a multicolored new one. I'd been meaning to do this with Zaxxon for a while as his bucket of crayons had a ton of broken pieces at the bottom, and finally did a few weeks ago while we had some friends over. Then my friend pointed out that these would make really good Valentine treats, and they don't even contain sugar! She declared that she would be making them for her kindergartener's class, and I decided to do the same as soon as I found out that Zaxxon's preschool would be doing a Valentine exchange.
Bake at 250 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes and Ta da! You have Crayon Cupcakes!
These collective projects were quite involved and time-consuming, especially since Zaxxon got sick partway through creating them, but we had a lot of fun nevertheless. Love kids and holiday celebrations!
