Maybe a fancy prix fixe dinner isn’t in the budget this year. Maybe a crowded restaurant sounds like the opposite of romance. Or maybe you just like your donuts and pizza with a helping of romantic whimsy.

Whatever the reason, these sweet and savory heart-shaped treats will keep you eating festively all Valentine’s Day long.
