Celebrating the Two Hearts

Saturday we went to celebrate the baptism of a precious new gift from above given to dear friends of ours.  I had offered to bring some snacks to share.  Being that we were celebrating the feasts of The Sacred Heart of Jesus and The Immaculate Heart of Mary, I checked out Catholic Cuisine for ideas.  I was thrilled to find these awesome and easy ideas!

For the first tray, I hand shaped a block of cream cheese into a heart and placed on a small plate.  I then added salsa and broken pretzels to form the crown of thorns.  Next, I added shredded cheese for the flame coming out at the top.  I put the small plate onto a larger one and surrounded it with tortilla chips.  (Using the two plates keeps the chips from getting soggy.)

For the Immaculate Heart, I also hand molded a cream cheese heart.  I put some pretty little artificial flowers across the center and placed a sword plastic toothpicks through the side.  Ritz crackers surrounded this also in the form of a heart.
I think these both were a special addition to a beautiful day!  Thanks again ladies for sharing your creativity with us all!
