I was excited to see my Lacy Heart Jam Filled Crepes be part of the Food Bloggers of Canada’s Round Up of Valentine Breakfast Ideas. It made me think about other heart shaped treats and ideas that I’ve posted about in the past. Perhaps this list will inspire you this Valentine’s Day.
Here are the Lacy Heart Jam Filled Crepes. They take a bit of practice, so give yourself a little extra time to make these – but once you’ve got the knack, they’re fantastic and so pretty.
If making lacy crepes seems a little over the top, how about jam filled Red Heart French Toast instead. Much easier but still adorable and delicious.
It’s no secret that I love fruit, so it should come as no surprise that two of my favorite, easy to “whip up” Valentine ideas involve apples. Here’s how to carve and swap hearts on the outside of apples Apple Hearts.
And here’s how to carve hearts inside an apple. If you reassemble the apple just right and wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, the hearts will be a surprise to whoever unwraps it. Ooh, secret admirer!
Finally, here was my attempt at making heart muffins without a heart shaped tin using only marbles. I have friends who swear by this technique, but I had mixed results – go ahead and try it but if you want guaranteed hearts for your child’s class party – go buy a heart shaped muffin tin!
I’ve started a Pinterest Board of heart shaped food so I can add to this list of heart shaped food.
