Do you love candied apples? This Candy Apple Mocktail Recipe tastes like a candied apple and has zero alcohol! To me, that is perfect for a Valentine’s Day party for your kids or their classmates.
My kids love for me to experiment with different mocktails for kids. They get to be taste-testers and give their opinions as we craft and build different recipes.
To spice it up for Valentine’s Day, be sure to add the pretty candy hearts as a garnish. Wouldn’t this be a fun drink for Valentine’s Day dinner? You could you the red, white, and pink ones ones like in my images or you could use the multi-colored ones that resemble Conversation Hearts I found after the fact. 🙂
