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!

How to Make Twinkies into a Heart

For each serving, you will need 2 Twinkies removed from their packaging. With a sharp knife, cut each Twinkie on the diagonal, as shown below –

Push the 2 parts of each Twinkie together to hid the cream filling, forming a heart. Top the heart shaped Twinkies with fresh strawberries and strawberry sauce.

For the strawberry sauce, I like to use some strawberry topping that you find with the ice cream sundae toppings. (It comes in a jar.) You can use strawberry syrup or even strawberry jam that is watered down just a bit so it drizzles over the Twinkies better.
