This Valentine’s Day, show your love without spending a lot with one of these sweet homemade heart-shaped treats.  There’s something for everyone – sweet and savory ideas – and even heart-shaped bacon.  Now that’s love.


Make heart-shaped pepperoni with mini heart cookie cutters and add it to homemade or store-bought pizza before baking.  Cute idea for a casual family dinner from One Charming Party.

Serve bacon hearts for a brunch treat or try dipping the cooked bacon hearts in chocolate for a sweet-salty snack.  Full recipe from the Paper Mama here.
