Sugary, dental mishap-inducing conversation hearts are indisputable classics, but they've been around for over 100 years, and since any candy might be a little stale after being in rotation that long, it's time to introduce a new option to the Valentine's Day parade of hearts. Add a little heat to the candy equation this holiday with these sweet-and-spicy whisky-sriracha hearts, made über easily in a silicone candy mold. Their flavor is similar to hot cinnamon candies, yet much more rich and intense thanks to the tipple of whisky. Finally, a considerably less saccharine  heart-shaped treat that will satisfy spice-seekers.
