Snack Hack: Cupid’s Arrow Hearty Snack

Valentine’s Day and all of its traditions can be a fun occasion to show your loved ones you care. While exchanging candy is fun, celebrating the holiday with unique recipes can be even more exciting. We came up with a simple, adorable Valentine’s Day snack that will delight and offer a fresh take on sharing hearts.

Materials
Roma tomatoes

Basil leaves
Cheese squares of preference
Toothpicks

First, gather your materials.

Step One

We will be using our favorite cheese square snacks to make the arrow heads and fletching. Each snack will require two squares of cheese, one for the head and the other for the fletching. For the arrowhead, carefully cut one square into a triangle. For the fletching, do the same and then cut a smaller triangle, so that when you are done with this piece, it should look like a “V”. Wash your basil leaves.

Step Two

For each snack, you will need two tomatoes. For each tomato, cut 1/3 off in a diagonal. Then, arrange the tomatoes along the cuts to form a heart shape. Once they are arranged, drive a toothpick through the middle of your “heart,” like cupid’s arrow. Next, attach the cheese arrowhead and fletching to each side of the toothpick, and make sure the points face the same way. Enjoy each snack with a basil leaf and a Juicy Juice 100% juice box!
