Step Two

Prepare the parchment or aluminum foil sheets.

Aluminum sheets can simply be folded over the ingredients and sealed with a series of narrow folds. Parchment is also easy to use by following simple steps; we found this method creates the tightest seal for parchment packets:

Fold parchment in half crosswise, making a crease down the center.

Draw half of a heart shape on paper. Cut out heart, and open the parchment.
