Valentines is another one of those holidays filled with sweet treats. Alex and Sophia love sweet treats and I do plan on getting them a little something sweet for the holiday, but, they are also getting some tokens of my affection that do not have any sugar. One of these tokens will be these tasty snacks. Nothing says I love you like meat, cheese, crackers and cucumbers all custom cut into heart-shapes. They will be the appetizer before our Valentines dinner (which will be steak with our heart-shaped compound butter :D).
This recipe is simple as you can see. We did make the crackers from scratch so they could heart-shaped, too. We used this recipe from www.thekitchn.com. It’s a decent recipe, but I wouldn’t use salt as the topping again…a bit too salty. I made a few without salt on top and they were perfect. To get everything heart-shaped, we used Pampered Chef’s Fruit & Cheese Cutter. We’ve had lots of fun with that little tool 😀
Everything we used and did is in the recipe below…let us know what you think!
Happy Valentines Day Everyone!
