While Valentine’s Day is commonly known as a day to celebrate romantic love, in our home we choose to celebrate love of all kinds. Honestly, February is a bit of a dreary season around here as it’s still pretty cold.

Last Valentine’s Day I drove the girls to a homeschool get-together where we exchanged Valentine’s Day cards with our homeschool friends. And of course, we enjoyed a wide variety of fun fast Valentines snacks! True, some were healthy. And some, not so much.

So we look for fun Valentine’s crafts, cupcakes, card patterns, and new dessert recipes to add some cheerful color and fun to our homeschool routine.

I’m always watching out for fast fun Valentines snacks to bake, like this one for Air Fryer Cherry Hand Pies.

This year I’m also experimenting with a white chocolate raspberry hot cocoa bomb. I should have the recipe up on Monday! Here it is!

And now, if you’re looking for something a little healthier, here’s a quick list of ideas for Valentine’s Day snacks to roll out in minutes.

15 Fast Fun Valentine’s Snacks

One of the cool things about this list is that it’ really easy to come up with healthy snacks that don’t take much time to prep. And that’s because of the traditional Valentine’s Day colors: white, red, and pink.

Try any of these fruits and vegetables fresh on a plate. Serve with a dip…or not.

Many of these red, pink and white vegetables and fruit make great dried snacks as well. (Try drying strawberries in a dehydrator – SO good!)

More Simple Valentine’s Day Snacks for Kids

It’s easy to add a few simple “sweet” treats to your homeschool day snacks without spending a ton of time in the kitchen. Here are a few ideas I’ve used to add some last-minute fun on Valentine’s Day.

  1. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out peanut butter and jam sandwiches. I’ve also used this for ham and cheese sandwiches.
  2. Mix 1 cup of strawberry or raspberry yogurt with 1 teaspoon honey for a pink fruit dip.
  3. Add a couple of drops of red food colouring to a container of vanilla frosting to make it pink. Then frost some store-bought plain biscuits.
  4. Add multi-coloured sprinkles….to pretty much anything. I’ve even made cinnamon toast and sprinkled it with red and white sprinkles!
  5. Make red jello with a dollop of vanilla ice cream, or whipped topping.
