Valentine’s Day Snacks – Easy & Fun!
Grab a heart-shaped cookie cutter and put together these easy and fun Valentine’s Day Snacks for your kids, friends, or sweetheart.
Hey Guys! Popping in super fast today to share this fun little Valentine’s Day Snack Board.
I actually created this for a client last year, but never had a chance to share it here with you, my favorite people.
Valentine’s Day Snacks are a must!
As you all know, I’m not the biggest fan of dessert or chocolates, almost always opting for a savory dish instead of sweet (a Halloween charcuterie board instead of candy for Halloween, always!).
Whether you’re hosting a girlfriend’s V-day party or having a cozy night in with your sweetie, why not just grab a heart-shaped cookie cutter and heart-shape all the things?
I also included a small dish of Lemon Herb Vinaigrette (simple recipe below!) for dipping the bread and veggies into (this vinaigrette is also good served over lox on a smoked salmon platter).
Happy Valentine’s Day!
