It’s the season of love — a.k.a, Valentine’s Day. And you know what that means: it’s time to pull out all the stops when it comes to wowing the ones you adore. Of course, there are tons of ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. For some, the holiday is all about cooking up a delicious dinner for two, while for others, the main objective is getting the girls together for a Galentine’s Day gathering (virtually, of course!). But no matter how you’re celebrating, your festivities could always benefit from the addition of a few heart-shaped foods.
Sure, serving a plate full of heart-shaped pancakes is a great way to get kids into the holiday spirit. But revelers of all ages enjoy funky foods too — and the opportunities for heart-shaped treats are endless. You could make something savory — like a pretzel, pizza, or egg sandwich — or something sweet — like a waffle, cinnamon roll, or brownie. And here’s the best part: for most of these recipes, you don’t need any special supplies like novelty cake pans or cookie cutters. No matter what you’re looking to cook up, we’ve got you covered with the best heart-shaped foods that are perfect for Valentine’s Day breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Many of them even make incredible homemade Valentine’s Day gifts for loved ones.
A rom-com + a salty snack (and maybe a cookie or two) = the perfect date night.
