Your kids will love these heart-shaped Valentine Twinkies! They are seriously one of the easiest Valentines Desserts ever!

Heart-shaped foods might be my favorite way to have a little fun in the kitchen! Mini heart donuts, heart-shaped dinner rolls, and chocolate heart cakes are a few recipes we love to make around Valentine’s Day. But if you’re looking for something even EASIER, you’ve gotta try these Valentine Twinkies!

Valentines Desserts – Heart Shaped Twinkies

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.

See? So cute!
