Valentine's Day School Lunch- Raspberry Mascarpone Heart Sammies

Share

Yum

I know fresh raspberries and marscapone cheese aren't two things people usually have on hand, but Valentine's Day only comes around once a year and just imagine how loved your little one will feel when he opens his lunch box on the 14th and finds this special Valentine's Day sammie waiting for him.

Filled with fresh raspberries, creamy marscapone (a soft spreadable Italian cheese sold in most supermarkets) and just a touch of raspberry preserves for added sweetness, this is a delicious school lunch surprise your little one won't soon forget.

In fact, your kids may start asking you if everyday can be Valentine's Day -- and who would say no to that!?

    Ok I’ve got to ask – what’s with all the raspberries lately? :) These do look tasty, though.
