The best way to get the perfect heart shape is to start cutting diagonally an inch from the top and then end an inch from the bottom on the other side.

See? So cute!

Chocolate drizzled on top definitely takes your treat up a notch! It looks fancy, but only adds a minute to your prep time!

Another way to take this insanely easy treat up another level is to make hearts out of the strawberries (if you’re using them).

Just cut a ‘V’ when you remove the stem, then slice them and voila! Cute little heart garnishes!

I love a budget-friendly treat that takes very little time to make my kids happy! Definitely a #MomWin for sure!
