Healthy Saint Valentine's Day Snack

When we made our Saint Valentine Puppets the other day, it just seemed that we should have a special snack in preparation for his feast day as well. :-)

There are 2 reasons we didn't make heart shaped cookies.
  1. I soooo need to cut back on how much sugar my kids (and I) eat.
  2. I don't enjoy baking.
So I opted for something easy and a little more nutritious. Doesn't it look healthy???

No?! Well, these aren't made out of spinach or anything gross and clever like that. They're just toasted English muffins "iced" with cream cheese and with added sprinkles. Who gets to say sprinkles are only for dessert? (I didn't have strawberry cream cheese, so I just added a little food coloring to regular cream cheese. Lydia was sure this made the cream cheese taste like "strawberry ice cream". lol.)

This one is decorated with strawberry flavored yogurt covered raisins. :-)

I just put some raspberry jam on mine. It was yummy! 

My children loved them!
