Awesome Boy Valentine Idea: Minecraft brownie bites and candy bars {Free Printable}

Minecraft is all the rage right now, especially at my house.  My boys love it!  So for Valentine's Day, I had to come up with some fun valentines that my boys can take to class.  It's always hard to come up with a saying that my boys can give other boys, without sounding too creepy or cheesy.  So we just go for funny :).  I thought it would be fun it my boys gave the creepers to the boys and the Steves to the girls.
For the brownie bites:
I used a square mold and made brownies.  They ones that weren't completely filled worked the best.

I printed out the printables that I made here.  I used some paper straws and cut them in half and then some plastic wrap to cover the brownie.

I stuck the straw into the brownie and then wrapped it up.

Then I put the paper onto the brownie.

And that's it.  I made up a Steve and Creeper along with a fun saying to go with them.  I'm definitely going to be doing these for my son's birthday party too, I love how they turned out.

I know that a lot of school don't allow baked goods, so I made up a candy bar version too.  I used 100 grand bars because I thought they fit with the whole mining and diamond themes of Minecraft.  

For these I just printed off the printables that I made here (they are different sizes than the brownies).

I wrapped the candy bars with the paper.  I taped down the sides of the candy bars so they didn't stick out.

Then I taped the candy bar onto the sayings.

If you don't want to have such a big saying, you can use the one from the brownies too.

I would love it if you followed along.

Where is the link to print these out? I had trouble finding it. My daughter would love these for the boys in her class.
