What better way to show your love than to show it with food? You don’t have to be a brilliant chef; show your love with some heart shaped foods.
They’re simple and easy to make. Heart-shaped treats are fun for the whole family if you want to get the kids involved in this sweet gesture.
DESIblitz are here to make sure that this Valentine’s Day you’re ready to give your partner the sweetest and simplest of gifts.
Heart Shaped Sandwiches
Sending your significant other off to work today with a packed lunch? If it’s portable heart shaped foods you’re after, then go for an adorable sandwich.
Just get yourself a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Simply press it down onto a completed sandwich for that extra touch of love.
This works best for sandwiches containing soft foods like egg, tuna or cheese. This is because it makes it easier to get a clean edge with the cookie cutter.
It’s also a great way to get rid of the crusts for fussy eaters. This means it’s ideal for you to get the kids involved with too.
Making small heart shaped sandwiches is a great way to add variety into a lunch as well. Mix and match your bread and fillings so you won’t only have a visually appealing surprise, you’ll have a tasty and interesting one as well.
Heart Shaped Pancakes
If you’re partner’s got a sweet tooth then there’s no better breakfast than a stack of pancakes. Take it to the next level this Valentine’s Day by adding a seasonal touch.
There are two ways to achieve the perfect heart shape for a pancake. The first is the simplest: get a metal heart shaped cookie cutter and place it in a hot pan. Carefully pour in your pancake batter. It’ll cook in the shape of the mould and you’ll uniform hearts each time.
The second way is more difficult but gives you more of an opportunity to get your creative juices flowing. Get a fast food restaurant style ketchup bottle with a long nozzle. Fill it with pancake batter and you have the ideal tool to draw with batter. So if you use this method you can create intricate designs.
So, if you’re looking for a creative breakfast this Valentine’s Day, or you want your heart shaped foods taken to the next level, try drawing your own lacy pancakes for personalised Valentine’s surprises like these.
Heart Shaped Eggs
So, you and your partner might be trying to eat healthily this Valentine’s Day. This doesn’t mean you need to miss out on having some adorable heart-shaped foods.
Get your metal cookie cutter and put it into a hot pan. Simply crack your eggs directly into the mould or whisk them up beforehand for a heart shaped omelette.
The eggs should cook neatly in the mould for a breakfast that’s as good for your body as it is for your relationship.
Serve your heart shaped eggs on matching pieces of toast by using the cookie cutter on the bread as well.
It’s a simple and nutritious breakfast that you can easily customise for Valentine’s Day so you don’t have to interrupt your clean eating regime.
Heart Shaped Cookies
If you’ve bought yourself a heart-shaped cookie cutter to get creative with this list, then it stands to reason that you’ll want to give heart-shaped cookies a go.
You don’t have to stick with any classic recipe for this one. Choose you or your partner’s favourite biscuit recipe and simply make it as normal. Instead of cutting circles or squares out of the dough, cut hearts.
If you want to stick to simple shapes for your biscuits, use a heart shaped cutter as a guide. Simply place the cutter on top of your biscuits and use it as a stencil for icing hearts.
For an extra Valentine’s Day twist on an ordinary cookie recipe, try adding a few drops of red food colouring for that romantic touch.
Heart Shaped Pizza
If you or your partner are working on Valentine’s Day, then it’s likely that all you’ll want at the end of the day is some comfort food.
Wanting tasty food at the end of the day doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice that Valentine’s touch. So, if you want to try your hand at heart shaped foods that’ll fill you up as well then give pizzas a go.
You can either make your own dough or get store-bought, and all you’ll need to do is shape it into a heart instead of a circle. It’s as simple as that.
If you’re feeling more creative then you can get crafty with the toppings too.
Try cutting pepperoni or mushroom slices into tiny hearts to bake on top, then you’ll have a truly adorable dinner for two.
So, if you’re stuck for inspiration on how to make your partner a sweet and romantic meal this Valentine’s Day, make sure you save this list.
You don’t have to be a professional chef to whip up something impressive. All you need to do is get creative with a cookie cutter and a knife. With this, you can turn your partner’s favourite foods into adorable meals.
Get the kids involved for family fun or send your partner to work with a romantic lunch. Heart shaped foods are the simplest way to your partner’s heart.
