    Go to your nearest dollar store and get ice-creme sundae glasses for $1 a piece. Fill each glass with Valentine candy of your choice like hearts, M&M, red, white and pink jelly beans. For the top of the sundae I used pink and white 1″ packing styrofoams which you can buy at Walmart, used a glue gun to glue them all together. I got 2 candy Pixie sticks for straws and a red or pink chocolate to replace the cherry on top. You will find a picture on my https://plus.google.com/#107040940913250872481/posts
