25 Heart-Shaped Foods for Valentine’s Day that Bring the Romance
It’s time to get creative in the kitchen and show your special someone some love this Valentine’s Day.
Because store-bought chocolates only go so far, right?
So whether you’re cooking for a significant other, your kids, friends, or coworkers, I know you’ll find something to try.
And these heart-shaped foods for Valentine’s Day are guaranteed to impress.
1. Heart-Shaped Brownies
Let’s start this list off with a bang. I mean, aren’t these heart-shaped brownies just the cutest things you’ve ever seen?!
And that fun filling is a terrific way to jazz them up even further!
They’re thick and fudgy with so much chocolatey goodness, you might not want to share.
Better yet, you could easily pull this off with a box of brownie mix!
2. Valentine’s Day Heart Sugar Cookies
Sugar cookies are the little black dress of the cookie world. That means they’re terrific for any occasion!
To make them suitable for V-Day, just cut them into little hearts and add sweet messages in icing.
How easy is that?
Remember though, if you choose a few NSFW messages, you’ll want to keep those away from the kids!
3. Heart-Shaped Pastry with Sweet Piccolo Tomato & Fragrant Basil
In the mood for something savory? Try these heart-shaped pastries loaded with herbs, tomatoes, and cream cheese.
They’re full of garden-fresh, herby flavor and perfect for lovers of pizza or bruschetta.
4. Strawberry Vanilla Heart Cake
This stunning strawberry and vanilla heart cake is exquisite. And as long you have the right tools, it isn’t even hard to make.
It’s just vanilla cake with strawberry preserves in the middle.
Then, you’ll add some colorful sprinkles and fancy strawberry buttercream flowers.
It’s easy, delicious, beautiful, and great for a Valentine’s Day dinner with the whole family.
5. Heart-Shaped Pepperoni Pizza
The cake above is dessert, and this is the dinner.
Just think of your kids’ faces when you serve a heart-shaped pizza with heart-shaped pepperoni to boot!
You’ll only need seven ingredients, including ready-made pizza dough, and it’ll be on the table in no time.
6. Roasted Heart Potatoes
Is there anything yummier than roasted potatoes covered in pepper and herbs? Maybe, but not much if you’re a potato lover like me.
These roasted potatoes are simple to make but are such a cute addition to your V-day dinner.
They use only a handful of ingredients, and you’ll shape them with a cookie cutter. Easy peasy.
7. Heart-Shaped Berry Turnovers
Oh. Em. Gee. These berry turnovers are some of the most delectable things you’ll ever put in your mouth.
In fact, they taste so good, it doesn’t even matter if they’re heart-shaped.
They’re flaky and fruity with a sweet, sticky icing that’s the perfect finishing touch.
Serve them for breakfast, and you’ll have smiles all day.
8. Spaghetti Hearts
These spaghetti bites prove you can turn anything into a heart if you try.
They may not be the most practical, but they sure are fun.
It takes a bit of creative finagling, but it isn’t difficult. And you can’t deny those results!
Give it a try the next time you have spaghetti and feel whimsical.
9. Beet Heart Ravioli with Ricotta and Thyme
If you’ve never made your own pasta before, why not try it for your Valentine?
It really is more straightforward than you think. And no, these babies don’t taste like beets!
Fill them with the recipe as instructed, or get creative with pumpkin, chicken, sausage – you name it!
10. Heart Beignets with Strawberry Powdered Sugar
If you’ve ever been to New Orleans, you’ll know what beignets are. You may even be familiar with them if you’ve never set foot in Louisiana.
Simply put, they’re deep-fried deliciousness covered in powdered sugar. And these beignets are just as lip-smackingly good.
You’ll love their fun, festive heart shape. Plus, the strawberry powdered sugar is incredible – and PINK!
11. Heart-Shaped Sea Salt Rosemary Pretzels
Soft pretzels are already vaguely heart-shaped. So it doesn’t take much work to make them V-Day friendly.
They’re soft and buttery, with hints of brown sugar and rosemary.
Top them in Parmesan cheese or dip them in melted cheddar for an added treat.
12. Valentine’s Nutella French Toast Hearts
Some people really get into Valentine’s Day, using every meal as an excuse to celebrate.
If that sounds like you, here’s a wonderful breakfast recipe.
Between the Nutella and fresh fruit, it’s 110% pure indulgence. But that’s what makes it so good.
Every bite will make you weak in the knees.
13. Heart-Shaped Donuts
Making heart-shaped donuts is just as simple as making any donuts. You’ll just need a handy dandy heart-shaped cookie cutter to help.
After you fry them, decorate them with traditional glaze, chocolate sauce, or pink icing.
Either way, your kids and coworkers will go gaga for them!
14. Valentine Cookie Cake
Why choose between cookies and cake when you can have both?
This cookie cake is thick, rich, and studded with chocolate chips and festive M&Ms.
It’s chocolatey and sweet, just as good as any you’d buy from the Great American Cookie Co. (A lot less expensive, too!)
15. Heart Vegetable Pancakes
Call them fritters or call them pancakes – just be sure to also call them “tonight’s dinner!”
These bad boys are crunchy, full of veggies, and taste phenomenal. Especially when paired with the Asian-inspired dipping sauce.
Serve them with spicy shrimp, tender chicken, or crispy tofu. Yum!
16. Heart-Shaped Churros
I adore churros.
There’s just something about the crunchy exterior and soft, sweet centers. (And all that cinnamon and sugar doesn’t hurt, either!)
This recipe tastes just as you’d expect, only you’ll make them into hearts and cover them with pink sugar.
It’s a simple spin but oh-so-festive!
17. Heart-Shaped Kimchi Rice Balls
You can make these adorable kimchi rice balls with just six ingredients.
They’re vegan-friendly and gluten-free, perfect for the Valentine with dietary restrictions.
And between the bold flavor and unique appearance, everyone who sees them will want to try them.
18. Choux Pastry Hearts with Raspberry Whipped Cream
Puffy, light choux pastries filled with fluffy, sweet raspberry whipped cream.
Mmmm. My mouth is watering just thinking about these baked goodies.
They’re lovely and are so soft, they practically melt in your mouth.
The icing on top is optional. I actually think they look better with a simple dusting of powdered sugar.
19. Heart-Shaped Cinnamon Rolls
Rolling a cinnamon roll into a heart is such an easy process. I don’t know why it took me running across this recipe to realize that.
They kind of look like palmiers, only they’re way softer.
And I love the addition of the maraschino cherry for a fun pop of color.
20. Heart-Shaped Falafel Wraps
If you haven’t tried falafel, you need to rectify that immediately! It’s sooooo good – crunchy, earthy, and herby all at once.
Plus, it’s such a tasty and quick vegan option. Though they’re also pretty hearty, so I bet most meat eaters will be more than happy.
Enjoy them with or without the wraps. But don’t skimp on the dressing!
21. Heart-Shaped Hand Pies
Hand pies are old-fashioned comfort food at their finest.
They’re loaded with fruity fillings and overall sweet deliciousness. Plus, you can use any flavors you like.
That said, red cherry pie filling just screams Valentine’s Day!
Use store-bought dough and canned pie filling, and they’ll be ready before you know it.
22. Heart-Shaped Eggs in Toast
Imagine waking up to this cute breakfast. Wouldn’t it just make your day?
It’s just like the OG egg-in-a-hole recipe, but for the heart shape in the middle.
Serve it with crispy bacon and some Sriracha on top. Delish!
23. Chicken Enchilada Hearts
You might think enchiladas are an odd choice for a heart-shaped food. But boy, they deliver in spades!
You’ll make them just like you’d make any enchilada. However, you’ll cook each one inside a heart-shaped springform pan.
If chicken isn’t your thing, that’s okay! Go with ground beef, shredded pork, or plain old cheese instead.
24. Heart-Shaped Rice Krispie Treats
These crunchy, gooey treats are always a hit – especially with the little ones.
That makes this recipe ideal for sending V-Day goodies to school or on play dates.
And they can even help with the decorating. Just be sure to have plenty of Valentine-inspired sprinkles!
25. Strawberry Cream Cheese Breakfast Pastries
I love a sweet pastry for breakfast. And while cinnamon rolls are a classic, I often choose a lighter cream cheese danish.
So you can imagine how excited I was to try this recipe!
Featuring flaky puff pastry and a dreamy cream cheese and strawberry filling, they’re such a delight.
Add a dark chocolate drizzle, and they might make you swoon.
