These Valentine’s Day hearts are perfect to gift your special Valentine. They’re healthy, juicy, and incredibly easy to make. Just pack them in your child’s lunchbox or bring them to the school’s bake sale. Wrap them up to give to your love, or make a platter to serve when friends come over.
Today I asked my 3 year old “who are you going to give your heart to for Valentine’s Day?” I wasn’t sure if she remembered what the holiday was all about, but I was curious to see what she would say. “Daddy!” Brooke exclaimed, which literally melted my heart.
And so, I pretty much improvised this DIY and they turned out amazing! Such a fun way to celebrate the holiday and share them with the whole family.
To start off, I used fresh, bright red strawberries that are medium to large in size. Make sure to always wash your fruit well to get rid of germs and pesticides. I cut off the stems and then I cut the tops of the strawberries in the shape of a heart (as seen above). The knife set we own (is the best) and can be found here.

What’s so great about these strawberry hearts is that they can be dressed with anything you want! Dip them in hot fudge or white chocolate. Drizzle chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, sprinkle icing sugar, or cinnamon on them.
The kids will love this nutritious treat. Full of antioxidants and chocolaty goodness. And if you don’t have a valentine this year to give a heart to, that’s okay too! This is my treat to you! Enjoy!
