Candy Heart Cheesecake

Say "I love you" with this yummy treat

Get creative with your sayings.

This Valentine's Day, I wanted to bake something that would not only be delicious, but memorable. We've all eaten candy hearts over the years, so when I found this fun recipe for cheesecake candy hearts and knew I had to try it.

I followed the recipe very closely and the hearts turned out great. Here are a few tips (full recipe link is below):

  • I ordered the silicon molds from Amazon (link in recipe) but only bought two. It made 12 total hearts which was perfect. You'll likely have extra batter leftover and can use that in a separate dish or just toss.
  • Use the food coloring sparingly. If you're going for the pastel colors of traditional candy hearts, start with one or two drops and add more if needed.
  • Keep the hearts in the freezer for as long as you want. I left mine overnight and they were ready to be painted the next day.
  • Get creative with your sayings. You can look up traditional candy heart sayings, but customize for your love.
Playing with food coloring is fun. :)
