I will be the first to admit I don’t like conversation hearts. At least not the original ones, but I can eat the tangy kind all day long! And they are in every single store and at every singe check out aisle right now. I’ve been tempted a time or two to buy some (for educational and learning reasons, of course!) but have yet to give in to those temptations. In the meantime, we came up with a way to have fun and yummy “conversation hearts” as a snack at home, I give you Conversation Heart Toast!
Two of our favorite snack activities involve toast: Painted Toast Snack and Letterpress Toast. For a fun Valentine’s Day treat, I simply combined the two activities into one!

To make the toast, the first thing you want to do is use the cookie cutter to shape your bread into hearts. You’ll want to be gentle so the bread doesn’t rip, though. If you need to clean up the edges a little bit, I find that kitchen shears work nicely.
This next step is optional: rolling the bread. I find that using a rolling pin to make the bread nice and flat helps it to toast more crisply. See how I rolled the bread in my original Letterpress Toast recipe.
Now comes the artistic bit: painting the bread! Combine milk with just a few drops of the liquid food coloring for nice, pastel colors.
Next you’ll need your alphabet stamps and the gel food coloring. Smear just a bit of food coloring on a plate and dip the stamp in it to coat. Now stamp your message into the bread!

Pop the bread in the broiler for a few minutes (until the bread starts to crisp), then you’re ready to enjoy!
