Valentine’s Day Snacks

A good dip for fresh fruit that my daughter’s preschool class liked last year is 1 container strawberry yogurt combined with 2 cups strawberry or plain Cool Whip. We also threaded the cut-up fruit onto long wooden skewers and put them on the platter with the dip. (cut the sharp end off the skewer with scissors before serving)

1 Jar Marshmallow whipped cream

1 package of cream cheese (strawberry) flavor

mix the two ingredients: serve with fruit banana’s, strawberries and other kinds of fruit that come to mind…..

As Sweet As A Kiss-Have students decorate a piece of foil with gummy candies (cut in half and they will stick without glue) and pull-and-peel twizlers. Then cut their masterpiece in the shape of a Hershey kiss. Use crate paper to add the flag.

I was reading some valentine’s snack ideas, and remembered these yummy dips.


Mix 2 parts cool whip with 1 part cherry yogurt for a great fruit dip. Experiment with different flavors but we found that cherry works best!:)


I saw this dip made with marshmallow spread and the person mixed hers with juice, ours is slightly different.

Mix 1 jar of marshmallow spread with one small brick of cream cheese (room temp. so its soft and easy to mix.

Mix well and enjoy! Great with all fruits:)

And Thanks for all your wonderful ideas!

I use different sized heart-shaped cookie cutters to create fun meals and snacks for the kids. They associate Valentine’s Day with candy and other sweets, so I use the cookie cutters for making heart-shaped pancakes, sandwiches (their favorite kind), biscuits, etc (anything that’s healthy for them). They enjoy the novelty to their everyday meals and snacks and are still talking about it when mom and dad come to pick them up at the end of the day.

heart cupcakes

this is so easy! just mix your cupcakes and pour them into a muffin pan as usual (be sure to use paper liners). then put a marble between the paper and the tin before you bake them. bake and ice as usual (don’t forget, the marbles will be HOT!)….this makes a great and easy heart-shaped cupcake.
