Sweet Treats For Valentine’s Day

Whether you’re looking for an idea for a bake sale, a party or an at-home snack, these ones come from the heart

Valentine’s Day food doesn’t all fine dining and cinnamon hearts. These 8 recipes will wow your friends and your kids—eat your heart out!

Strawberry Heart Cheesecake Bites

Cheesecake can be heavy, but this teeny tiny version is just perfect. Graham cracker crust is a classic, and heart shaped strawberries are sweet as, well, cheesecake. Check out The Happier Homemaker for the simple, but adorable, recipe. 

Chocolate Covered Pretzel

These chocolate covered, pink, red and white themed pretzels from Love From The Oven are party favour-worthy (ahem, Pinterest). Try variations with milk or dark chocolate, or a home-made yogurt-covered pretzel as a base.

Valentine’s Dipped Rice Krispies Treats

Get out the pink and red sprinkles, and have your kids roll up their sleeves to decorate their own heart-shaped Rice Krispie treats. Cooking On The Side offers us a decorative take on a classic.  

Hidden Heart Valentine’s Pound Cake

The amazing part of this pound cake is right in its name: you literally hid a heart inside your cake. Choose your favourite chocolate and vanilla cake recipes (or mixes) for this one and go from “How did they do that?” to “OMG I made that!” Follow Boulder Locavore’s tutorial to pull it off!

Beet Cheddar Crackers with Flax Seed

These deep red hearts are coloured with beets, a savory option with nutritional appeal, for when you’ve had enough heart-shaped sugar. Check out In Sock Monkey Slippers for a great how-to with helpful step-by-step photos.  

Heart Fruit Skewers

These adorable skewers are incredibly easy to make, all you need is your kids’ favourite fruits, a heart-shaped cookie cutter and wooden skewers. Try them as shown on One Handed Cooks, or with pineapple and cantaloupe as variations, stack heart-to-heart, or with grapes in between.

Valentine’s Snack Mix

What’s the best, and most make-together friendly, about this idea is that you can customize it to your kid’s taste. Forgo candy coating for ease, and choose your cereal of choice and any red candies; try dried cranberries or your favourite nut as variations. Or follow Glorious Treats’ how-to!
