The meal guaranteed to win a heart this Valentine's Day.
Don't just buy boxed chocolates this Valentine's Day. Take the
heart-shaped theme to the max and prepare dinner to dessert with all
heart-shaped items. Also, make sure you have heart-shaped goodies all
throughout the day.
Using a heart mold or cookie cutter, you make almost any dish
Valentine-worthy. For dinner, make some homemade heart-shaped ravioli,
stuffed with cheese, spinach, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, or any other
filling. If homemade ravioli seems like too much of an ordeal, go for a
breakfast theme. Fry up eggs in a heart mold and serve with heart-shaped
pancakes. Another quick option is a hearty soup with heart-shaped
For dessert, the easiest options are sugar cookies or cake.
Personalize your dessert by adding icing and phrases, like conversation
heart sayings. Try the old classic, "UR 4 Me" or maybe a newbie, like
"Txt me!" Other desserts that can easily be made heart-shaped are tarts
and, of course, jello.
Other desserts, or just goodies for the day are cake pops, homemade
peppermint patties, and homemade marshmallows with red food coloring. A
quick and easy treat that uses leftover Christmas candy canes is heart
lollipops made by melting together two candy canes.
Enjoy your dinner and don't forget the flowers!
