How to Have the Cheesiest Valentine's Day Ever
Being this cheesy ain't easy.
No, we’re not talking tossing-rocks-at-your-window cheesy. We’re all about the melty, gooey, cheese-pull kind that is sure to set your sweetie’s heart aflutter (or at least get their belly grumbling). Have a little fun this Valentine’s Day with some cheesy favorites to swoon over.
Flamin' Hot Cheeto Mozzarella Hearts (pictured above)
Nothing says "my heart is yours" like these spicy, cheesy, crunchy treats. From the blazing red color to the bold flavor, they clearly show your Valentine how much you care.
Red velvet brownie batter serves dual purpose here: as the base for these fudgy brownies as well as the deep red swirl in the cheesecake topper.
You’ve Got a Pizza My Heart
A pair of scissors is the only tool you need to cut presliced pepperoni into hearts. Use them to dress up a frozen pie, or go all out and make homemade pizza, shaping the dough into a big heart, too.
Hot Date Cheese Plate
Use assorted-size heart cutters to shape cheddar, Havarti or other semi-firm cheeses into cute little tokens of affection. Step things up a notch and serve this cheesy plate with a side of grape tapenade.
Reel in the Laughs
Turn these no-fail snacks into a V-day treat by bagging up cheesy fish crackers and tagging with a note. Think "You're a great catch," "You're too cool for school" or "I'm hooked on you."
If it’s nothing but the cheesiest for your Valentine, lasagna rolls are a must. Make it weeknight-friendly by starting out with premade tomato sauce and prepare the rest of the meal while the pasta bakes.
A chocolate wafer base is the perfect complement to this creamy cheesecake. It might seem like you’re under-baking the cheesecake, but taking it out of the oven while the center is still a little wobbly will ensure that the red velvet maintains its bright color (and it will firm up nicely as it chills).
