Hearts Abound

Hi everyone!
With Valentine's Day looming on the horizon, I found a couple of cute ways to add some LOVE to some everyday recipes!

Instead of making "regular" peanut butter blossoms with Hershey's Kisses, use heart-shaped chocolates, like Dove chocolates. I actually used Hershey's Bliss heart-shaped dark chocolates in these peanut butter cookies. Erik is a really big fan of dark chocolate.


Another favorite treat of ours for breakfast; eggs in a basket!
           Here I used a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the center of some wheat bread (instead of a circle) for the egg. It was a fun surprise on Erik's plate when he sat down. He said, "Hey! It's a HEART! Awwww! How cuuuuute!" (Yes, that is exactly how he said it. Ha!)

                     What fun things can you think of to add some LOVE to?

Thanks for stopping by!
