Heart-Shaped Food for Valentine's Day-Sweet & Savory (Recipes)

It's always fun to have special food on each holiday and this one asks for heart-shaped food.  We've found some really fun looking things that are easy to put together for anytime during February or just for the special day. You'll find something for breakfast, lunch and dinner here.  Some you can use for your sweetheart and some will be great for the kids.


I thought I would start off my post about heart-shaped Valentine food with a "non-food" item (couldn't help myself)  This beautiful wreath made up of vintage Valentine's Day cards. So cute that I just had to share it! The complete tutorial is available too.   You could use any kind of card, not just vintage and why couldn't you do this for the other holidays throughout the year?  Head over to  Creative Breathing to get all the see the photo tutorial. Now onto Valentine heart-shaped food....


These heart shaped tortilla chips are so fun.  Love the sign in the salsa that says  "Hot Stuff"  Head over to Recipe by Photo to get the recipe.


Yes you can make heart shaped food for breakfast too and this is a kid friendly breakfast. These Heavenly Heart-Shaped panckes have semi-sweet chocolate chips in them. Very Best Baking

Love these Tuxedo Strawberries. Get all the directions over at Cafe Fernando's



Here's a fun sandwich for the kid's lunchbox. The web page isn't in English so I guess we're on our own...Out of 2 pieces of bread cut out a square. In one of the squares cut a heart.  Peanut butter and jelly could be used and then sprinkles within the heart.  Maybe for the chocolate sprinkles sandwich you could use Nutella and peanut butter.

Cherry Pecan Coffee Cake could be served for breakfast or anytime of the day. Taste of Home

You caught me again.....not heart-shaped food but I love the Chex Mix recipe and this looks even more delicious since it's a sweet variation. (I bet you could form this Chex Mix into a heart shape!)  Peanut butter, M&M's, Chex and more ingredients.  Simply This and That 


In our last blog post we gave you an idea for a paper arrow (Cupid's Arrow made out of a Pixie Stick)  but this is an edible arrow that is adorable for Valentine's Day treats for your family.  Organize and Decorate Everything  (Saw heart shaped candy this size at Harmon's Grocery store, the candy that they package, in back by the milk, only they were bright red like a cinnamon bear-they would be prefect for this) 



Baked Heart-Shaped Chocolate Donuts with heart shaped sprinkles will make the kids happy. I don't know why kids like donuts with sprinkles so much. Everytime I bring home donuts the kids grab those first.  Get the recipe over at Kirbie's Cravings
