My oldest child is 6 years old, and he is super interested in learning to cook. Every weekend we pick a recipe and I teach him how to make it.

Most of the recipes we have chosen to make have been desserts. This time, we went for something easier, but so much fun and super cute for Valentine’s Day, and we made these heart shaped breadsticks

Whenever we have rolls, breadsticks, garlic bread, or pizza, I use Rhodes dough. It’s just too good and too easy to pull the frozen dough from my freezer and let it thaw to use for dinner-time.

We are obsessed with fresh-baked bread, and Rhodes bread tastes homemade because it’s baked fresh from your oven. That’s why we used Rhodes white dinner rolls for these heart shaped breadsticks.

HEART SHAPED BREADSTICK INGREDIENTS

For this easy recipe, you will need to thaw some Rhodes frozen dinner rolls. Then all you need is some garlic salt, shredded Parmesan cheese, and an egg.

Heart Shaped Breadsticks Ingredients: Rhodes rolls, garlic salt, shredded parmesan cheese, egg.

HOW TO MAKE HEART SHAPED BREADSTICKS

First, roll each roll into a long rope about ½-inch thick and 13+ inches long.

Then sprinkle some garlic salt and shredded parmesan onto your work surface and roll the breadstick into the toppings to coat the stick, leaving the ends bare for the next step.

Dough rolled into a stick with parmesan and garlic salt adhering to the outside.

Pinch the ends together tightly creating a tear drop shape.

Then pinch the top of the rounded end into a point, facing the same direction as the bottom point, creating a heart shape.

Press more cheese and garlic salt into any bare areas of the heart. Repeat with each roll.

How to make heart shaped breadsticks: Pinch ends of breadstick together, then press the rounded top down into a point like the bottom of the heart.

Place the heart shaped breadsticks onto a silicone lined baking sheet about an inch apart alternating directions to fit them all on one tray.

Cover with greased plastic wrap and allow to rise for 30 to 45 minutes.

Beat an egg and brush it on top of the risen breadsticks.

So easy and very tasty! Even my 8 month old baby boy loved gnawing on these breadsticks. That was cute to watch.

We usually make a semi-fancy pasta dinner for our whole family on Valentine’s day, and these heart-shaped breadsticks go perfectly with it!

Plus, there’s just something about “fun food” that makes kids eat more of it. Not that my kids need help eating bread, but they sure gobbled up these heart shaped breadsticks!
