Say 'I love you' this Valentine's Day with these weird and wonderful heart-shaped edibles
Forget the card, clichéd poem and dozen red roses. For originality this Valentine's Day, it's all about the heart-shaped treats.
1. Swap the bellies of these heart-shaped biccies for a fun two-tone effect.
2. Turn frankfurters into mini Cupid's arrows...
3. Prep heart-shaped cinnamon rolls a day ahead and keep covered in the fridge ready to bake for the family on Valentine's morning.
4. Make crunchy 'n' chewy rice krispy cakes and dip in melted dark chocolate.
5. As these clever little ice cubes melt, they slowly turn your milk pink ... *swoon*!
6. One if you or your Valentine are gluten-free (or just love sesame seeds!). These heart-shaped sesame snaps are eggless, sugarless and flourless, too.
7. Make a "full English" of these toast egg cups by serving them with black pudding, beans and good-old hash browns.
8. Pop their favourite sweeties into these brownie treasure boxes and seal with chocolate sauce. They're less of a faff to make than you might think – thanks to a packet of cake mix.
9. Make the ordinary extraordinary with a bunch of carrots and some nifty knife skills.
10. When an ordinary cake won't cut it, sandwich these extra-fudgy brownies with fresh raspberry buttercream.
11. One for the minimalist – well, sometimes simple is best.
12. Homemade pop tarts. Sprinkle on some edible heart-shaped confetti and they'll knock your Valentine's socks off.
13. Love heart cookie bracelets ... a great deal cheaper and sweeter, than what you'll get in Tiffany...
14. You'll need the patience of a saint to make these stylish crisps ... but they're definitely worth it. And gluten-free.
15. Heart-shaped sugar lumps will make their morning cuppa taste even sweeter.
16. And while we can't say these honey, green tea sandwich cookies are healthy, they are very scrummy and definitely green!
17. Perfect if your loved one loves pizza. And let's face it, who doesn't.
18. The colour of these tangy heart-shaped cranberry bars is all natural... plus, you can eat the trimmings as you cut them out!
19. Have you ever tried this with bacon before?
20. Made with red wine, corn syrup and sugar, finish these grown-up lollipops with a dusting of gold lustre powder.
21. Or, pipe French meringues into hearts before baking. Once cooked and cooled, serve with fresh berries. C'est magnifique!
