This list is also of homemade food that you make from scratch (or scratch-ish). So, recipes that require a little more effort than opening a bag of heart-shaped French fries and heating them up in the oven.

Pizza is such an easy meal, especially if you make it with our simple homemade pizza dough: two ingredient dough. It’s literally two ingredients: flour and yogurt. It makes a tasty crust, which is so festive if you cut it with a heart cookie cutter before topping it with traditional pizza toppings.

Your whole family will love their individual tiny heart pizzas and you’ll love how simple they are to make.

Breakfast is a great way to start the day and heart-shaped eggs are a great Valentine’s Day breakfast idea.

This does take a little bit of preplanning, though. You need to boil the eggs the right before, then let them chill overnight in a homemade contraption of cardboard, rubber bands, and a chop stick in order to create the cute heart shape But, trust me when I tell you it’s so worth it.

Elephant Ear Cookies being heart-shaped cookies are a happy accident. They’re called Elephant Ear or Palmiers cookies because of their shape: elephant ears or palm leaves, depending on how you look at them. But, if you’re like me, I look at the golden brown cinnamon sugar cookie and see a heart. And so, they’re accidentally Valentine’s Day cookies.

They’re made from store-bought pastry dough, then folded and cut. They form their heart shape naturally; no heart-shaped cookie cutter needed. They’re really easy and the perfect way to finish your Valentine’s Day dinner.

Candy Cane Chocolate Hearts

If you still have mini candy canes left over from Christmas last year that you’ve been trying to eat, you’re in luck. You can turn them into a tasty treat for Valentine’s Day. Face two of them together on a cookie sheet to form the shape of a heart. Melt two together, then fill them with melted white chocolate. That’s it.

If you wanted, you could add a lollipop stick to make these into lollipops, which are a little easier to eat than just holding these in your hand.
