We are out of town for Valentine’s Day so these Valentine’s Day Fruit Cups became our after school snack before we left for the weekend. Make them for your family for breakfast, brunch, or lunch on Valentine’s Day using their favorite fruits.
You only need a few supplies and you probably already have them:
Large Party Treat Cups
Form a heart shape on one end of the pipe cleaner and wrap the end of it around the stem to hold it in place. I used pink and white stems since they were the closest I had to the holiday colors, I must have used all the red ones at Christmas.
Make name flags by wrapping washi tape around the pipe cleaner right under the heart shape.
Use a black Sharpie marker to write names on the flags. It writes really well on the washi tape and doesn’t run.
You can find the large treat cups at any party supply store and some craft stores.
The kids were happy to have a treat to eat at the beginning of our trip and before we stopped for dinner. We love this simple fruit dip. It’s so quick and easy to make. You can get the recipe for the Yummy Fruit Dip and make it to go with your family’s favorite fruits.
The hearts would look cute in cupcakes, cakes, donuts, or any dessert. I’m thinking of other holidays and more pipe cleaner shapes I can make. I might experiment to see what shape will work for graduation. Any suggestions?
