Sweets for Your Sweetheart

By Sydney Hill

It's never too early to begin planning. Whether you want to make things for a class party, a sweetheart, or a soon-to-be sweetheart these will definitely do the job. I found some fun, clever, and yummy treats that will sweeten up your sweetheart's heart.

White Chocolate Filled Raspberries

I had these at a bridal shower once. The texture and flavor is wonderful. It's a good way to add a fruit to all the sweets.

Cinnamon Roll Hearts

Roll the dough from both sides and you've got a yummy breakfast to serve to your love.

Collage of Hearts

Heart shaped cookie pops, pretzels with heart sprinkles, and yogurt jello pops. Something to please all.


Valentine's Chex Mix


I love Chex Mix Muddie buddies, Chex mix, etc. This one comes straight from their website so I trust it to be amazing!

Yogurt Covered Strawberries

These would be great to make for a class party or if you're feeling candied out.








Yogurt Strawberry with Rosy Twist

I've seen Hershey Kiss Roses, but I thought these were beautiful with the leaves, too.









Brownie Heart Pizza

Bake a brownie, cut out a heart. Spread with frosting and cover with strawberries. Delightful.





Actual Heart Pizza

You can cut the dough into a heart shape, or you can just cut the pepperoni! I would think men would particularly appreciate this one.



Breakfast: Bacon Arrow through Heart Toast

Cook the bacon, Cook the toast, Cook the egg. A Perfect breakfast for the one you love.
