What You Need

2. Wash the strawberry under cool water. Gently rub the surface of the strawberry with your fingers to remove any dirt or debris.

3. Cut off the green leaves at the top of the strawberry using a sharp knife

4. Cut the strawberry in half lengthwise. If you want larger hearts, you can cut the strawberry into quarters or eighths.

5. Use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out shapes from each half of the strawberry. You can also use a small knife to cut out heart shapes freehand.

6. Enjoy your strawberries! These heart-shaped berries are perfect for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, or any other special occasion.
