All you need is a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to make this kid-pleasing Valentine breakfast recipe. I like to grill the cutout heart bread piece, too. Yummy!

What better Valentine's Day dinner for kids than a heart shaped pizza? This recipe uses frozen bread dough, but feel free to use your own homemade pizza dough if you prefer. I have a bread machine pizza dough recipe that works beautifully with this heart pizza.

Heart Shaped Meatloaf Recipe

These adorable mini meatloaves are formed with large, heart shaped Valentine cookie cutters (compare prices). A ketchup glaze is the perfect topping for these adorable Valentine meatloaves.

These sugar cookies are cut into heart shapes, then topped with chocolate hearts, making them the ideal treats for school Valentine's Day parties. Look for small chocolate candy hearts in your local supermarket in early February.

Raspberry Brownies for Valentine's Day

These chocolate brownies have a hint of raspberry flavor. Of course, you can cut the brownies into hearts, but I prefer dusting them with powdered sugar. To make the heart shapes, you will need Valentine heart cookie stencils (compare prices).

Valentine's Day Rice Crispy Treats

These chocolate flavored rice crispy treats are shaped into hearts (a thicker, comfort grip style cookie cutter works best with this recipe), then topped with melted white chocolate and a drizzle of semisweet or dark chocolate. The effect is spectacular and the taste is amazing.

These heart-shaped peanut butter bar cookies taste like homemade peanut butter cups. And with only five ingredients, the recipe is super simple. Use small heart cookie cutters for these bars - they're rich.

Valentine Cookies

Valentine Cookies
Stephanie Gallagher
Any rolled cookie can be turned into heart-shaped Valentine food, but these chocolate sugar cookies are especially suited to the job. Tender and sweet, but not overly sweet, they are perfect for decorating. I like to dip these cookies in melted chocolate or pink candy melts (available at most craft stores, such as Michael's) and top with red, white and pink sprinkles.
