1 puff pastry sheet
Beaten egg to glaze
Castor sugar for sprinkling
8 -10 tablespoons Crème fraiche (you can add according to your choice both crème and strawberries)
100g Fresh strawberries
½ cup Plain chocolate melted


Preheat oven to 220 degrees C (425 F)
Thaw the pastry sheet according to the instructions on the box. Unroll pastry sheet and cut around 8 hearts with a heart shaped cookie cutter. (I used medium sized cutter of a set of 3)
Prick each heart with a fork, brush with beaten egg and sprinkle lightly with some sugar.
Place these hearts on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 10min until risen and golden brown in colour. Let it cool.
Slice the strawberries and split the heart horizontally using a sharp knife.
Sandwich the heart together with crème fraiche and sliced strawberries. Drizzle the chocolate and dust some castor sugar over the tops of the heart.


V-day is always exciting to party with lots of yummy dishes and memorable presents from loved ones – well...that’s the way I adore my dear ones:)! Valentine symbols, cupid- roses- hearts- love birds-love knots are quite famous even to this day and are made so attractive that it’s hard to take away one’s eye from them. But I wonder why cupid was chosen as an icon of Valentine’s Day – Because when I think about romance, a short chubby toddler coming to me with a weapon in his hand would be the last thing that comes on my mind LOL......too ingenious isn’t it ;)...Hmmm anyways.... Well...this time I made a perfect treat for my Valentine, a heart shaped dessert with cream & strawberries sandwiched and topped with chocolaty sugar Ummmmm yum yum! And a sweet addition for our V-day gifts this time was a red colour heart decorated with lots and lots of glitters was the best from our little valentine -Yep my 28months old toddler came up with this charming heart with the help of his teachers at school, really amazed at those little hands ability:). Make your day with this gorgeous Valentines Hearts with few fresh strawberries :)!!! Happy Valentine's Day!!
