I love heart-shaped foods for Valentine’s Day, of course, but I also like to break out the hugs and kisses. There are far too few X & O foods around, and this year I set out to remedy that.

Wouldn’t it be so much fun to give these to your sweet family next week? I can almost feel the hugs and kisses that would ensue when any of these adorable treats are served!
