Want to make someone’s heart grow fonder? This Valentine’s Day an entrée or dessert in the shape of a heart might just be the answer.

Heart-shaped pizzas have been a thing for several years. But did you know there’s also heart-shaped chicken nuggets? And if you or your V-Day chosen one has a sweet tooth, you can choose from other heart-shaped foods like donuts, cakes, pies, cookies and even biscuits.

If there’s someone you are sweet on, here’s a selection of heart-shaped foods to choose from. Also check local restaurants and smaller chains for specially shaped menu items (some are priced locally).
