Valentine’s Day is around the corner and if you’re in charge of class parties, play dates or just want to make something fun for your kids these little snacks are perfect!
I saw a quote the other day that said “I wish I was a Pinterest Mom but I’m more of an Amazon Mom” and totally laughed. I would say that most of the time I am totally an Amazon Mom over a Pinterest Mom. (I can’t sew for my life, homemade Halloween costumes don’t happen every year at my house, I’m not into thrift stores, etc.) but my exception is holiday food! I love fun festive treats!
Most of these treats are really easy if you have a set of small heart cookie cutters. I got this set of mini heart clay cutters on Amazon for just $5.
Heart Hummus Snack Plate
Carrots – slice diagonally, twist one end to make a heart, secure with toothpick
Cucumbers – slice and cut out heart
Cheese slices – cut out hearts
Hummus for serving
My 1-year-old loves dipping things in basically anything, but especially hummus. I always have cheese, hummus, carrots, and cucumbers in my fridge and make this snack combination on a regular basis – it’s just dressed up here for Valentine’s Day!
Heart Sandwich Pretzel Pops
2 slices gluten-free cinnamon raisin bread (I like Canyon Bakehouse)
Gluten-free pretzel sticks (I like Glutino)
Make the sandwich then cut out mini hearts. Add a gluten-free pretzel for a handle. My kids love these and they are perfect for lunch boxes!
Pizza My Heart Bagels
1 gluten-free bagel (I like Canyon Bakehouse or Trader Joe’s)
Pizza sauce (I like Trader Joe’s Pizza sauce)
Pepperoni (I like Applegate pepperoni) – cut out like hearts
Spread pizza sauce on both sides of the bagel. Sprinkle with cheese and top with the heart pepperoni. Broil for 3-4 minutes until golden and bubbly.
Have you tried pizza bagels? They are so easy and my kids love them for an easy lunch or dinner when I don’t feel like cooking. Cutting the pepperoni out like hearts makes these special!
2 gluten-free tortillas (I like Mission tortillas)
Make the quesadilla and cut into hearts. Enjoy!
This is so embarassingly easy I almost didn’t include it. But my kids love quesadillas and they are super easy to turn into a Valentine’s Day snack!
