If you know how to make mini heart shaped donuts, I would go for it. And, thne make a raspberry or strawberry glaze to top it off. Who doesn't love donuts...heart shaped doughnut pans are available in many stores.

What about rice crispy treats in the shape of hearts with red candy on top?

This is kind of cheesy but I did it for a bridal shower brunch, so...it kind of fit the theme. I got those small pumpernickel square loaves of bread and a heart-shaped cookie cutter that fit the square pretty perfectly (minimal waste of bread). We used the cookie cutters to cut the bread into hearts, toasted it lightly (on a cookie sheet in the oven -- seemed too fragile for the toaster). We spread the toasts with cream cheese, and then put some smoked salmon on top. We served it with the usual accoutrements. So if you're looking for something savory, maybe this would fit the bill.

This is a little involved, but it's a good alternative to sugary sweets, if that's what you're trying to avoid. Got it from David Lebovitz who made pickled turnip, but you can use large daikon radishes. So here goes:

- Peel a large radish or turnip and slice thin, then cut out hearts with a knife or a cookie cutter. Alternatively (and this works better with the long daikons), carve out a heart-shape cylinder and then slice thinly thinly, each slice is a heart already (no cookie cutter needed).

- Then pickle in a sweet & sour brine with some peeled red beets. The beets will color the white radish/turnip a nice pink shade.

Here's Lebovitz's pickled turnip recipe: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2012/09/pickled-turnips-turnip-recipe/

Is this for a child's event? You could purée strawberries and mix them with cream cheese, then cut thin white bread with a heart shaped cookie cutter and make little pink and white tea sandwiches.
I think I have seen heart shaped molds for cupcakes at speciality cooking shops like sur la table. If you could find one you could make vanilla cupcakes with strawberry frosting.
