Valentine Twinkies are such fun Valentines desserts! They are a quick and easy twist on your favorite strawberry shortcake recipe. You only need a few items (you might even have everything in your pantry already!), and in just a few minutes, you’ve got yourself a darling treat that is fun and festive!
Valentines Desserts – Heart Shaped Twinkies
Valentines Dessert - Heart Shaped Twinkies
A simple treat that kids (and your pocket book) will love!
- Strawberry Jam diluted with a little water so it drizzles easier
- Sliced Strawberries optional for garnish
- Chocolate syrup or melted chocolate for drizzling - optional
Cut your twinkies diagonally in half.
Arrange in a heart shape.
Drizzle strawberry jam/water mix over the top.
Garnish with strawberries (optional)
Drizzle with chocolate (optional)
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!
