Everyone has their own way to spread love on Valentine’s Day. Some prefer flowers and chocolates while others prefer balloons and a sweet note. All of these are great ways to celebrate your valentine but nothing says “I love you” like homemade meals and treats. Since a heart is the universal symbol of love we have put together a few simple ideas for you to show love with heart-shaped foods.

-Breakfast in Bed: Create a heart filled breakfast in bed tray by using heart shaped cookie cutters to form heart shaped toast, French toast, eggs or fruit.

-Sandwiches: Use heart cookie cutters to spruce up your lunch time peanut butter and jelly or grilled cheese.

-Pizza: Make dinner time fun with a pizza bar. Shape your crust into small or large heart shapes and decorate your heart with all your favorite toppings. Use mini heart shape cutters to spice up your pepperoni for your pizza.

-Fruit Tray: Cut up all your favorite fruits and form them all into a heart for a healthy valentines snack.

-Baked Goods: After making any of your favorite baked good use a heart shaped cutter to add some love in. Make it a fun activity by adding pink and red frosting and topping it all off with valentine sprinkles.
