I simply softened butter on the counter (real butter, by the way, no margarine in this house), then smeared it into some heart-shaped candy molds, and popped them in the freezer for a bit.
And then I put them in a lidded, vintage bowl and hid them in the fridge so the kids wouldn't see them.
And I pulled them out last night for our Sunday-night pancake dinner.
(Served with chocolate chip pancakes and the one and only King Syrup. This is a pantry staple in our area. It's awesome on cornbread. I thought I might die when we lived in Columbus, Ohio, and there was no King Syrup to be found. I had to personally import it.)
Did I mention that it's snowing again? 4-7 inches are in our forecast ...
