Using the heart shape, many, many snacks can be turned into a valentine snack. Use heart shaped cookie cutters to cut grilled cheese sandwiches out or toast and strawberry jam. Make heart shaped pancakes with a metal cookie cutter set in the pan and pour the batter into it to form the shape. Serve red and white items for lunch on Valentine's day.
