Spring Roll Strawberry Kisses

Valentine Heart Kisses

Wow this little Hallmark holiday caught me off guard. How about you?

Valentine Heart Kisses

Valentines day, when my boys were younger was such a fun and innocent time. We used to sit at the kitchen table and write out little love notes and wrap them around lollies and heart-shaped candies for all of their classmates.

Valentine Heart Kisses

Now, however,  if my teenage boys think about sending out cards and candies to their teenage 15-year-old going on 25-year-old sweethearts, it gives mom more gray hair and stress!

Valentine Heart Kisses

Today, I did not want this family tradition to come and go without recognition so I stumbled into the pantry to see what I could come up with to let Mr. Anonymous and the boys let them know how much mom loves them.

Valentine Heart Kisses

I had strawberries, a bit of 70% good chocolate, spring roll wrappers, heart-shaped cutters and a bit of imagination and bingo we have the Valentine strawberry kisses.

Valentine Heart Kisses

Valentine Strawberry Kisses are light, delicious and simple.  They are light and crispy on the outside and the strawberry filling is slightly sweet and tart on the inside. Spring rolls are such a fun way to make desserts in a flash.

Valentine Heart Kisses

I made this dessert from start to finish in less than 20 minutes and answered a phone call, finished up dinner and dealt with the kids, so imagine what you could do if you had 15 solid minutes...

If you can't get your hands on Chinese Spring rolls (usually found in the frozen food section of Asian food stores) you could easily subsitute sheets of phyllo dough or puff pastry or even use your own homemade pie dough.

Valentine Heart Kisses

You really could use any filling your heart desires. What do you think about these other alternatives... nutella, banana foster, almond butter, peach preserves, blueberry buckle, apples and cinnamon, brie and fruit, and oh my goodness the list goes on and on. However, it is Valentines day and strawberries were on sale in the market, so Spring Roll Strawberry Kisses are on the menu tonight in Bam's Kitchen.

Spring Roll Strawberry Kisses

By HWC Magazine  , ,

February 14, 2013

Quick and easy Valentine treats for a romantic dinner for two or as a fun surprise for an after school snack.  This recipe makes about 12 Valentine Heart Kisses depending on the size of your cookie cutter.

  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 4 Adults or 1 Hungry Teenager

Ingredients

Spring Roll pastry sheets - package

strawberries - 3/4 cup chopped finely (reserve some for garnish)

lemon juice - 1 tablespoon

sugar or sugar alternative - to taste (I used 4 packets of sweet and low)

cornstarch - 1 tablespoon

water - 1/2 cup

salt - dash

vanilla - 1/2 teaspoon

egg - 1 beaten (use for glue)

chocolate 70% - optional (melted and drizzle for garnish)

whipping cream - optional (garnish)

Heart shaped cookie cutter - optional (You could just wrap up strawberries like a Chinese spring roll)

oil for frying - small amount or can use spray oil

Directions

1Unthaw Chinese Spring rolls. (Please note that Chinese Spring rolls dry out quickly when exposed to air so unthaw and keep package closed until ready to use. Once you open the package keep the unused portion under a damp tea cloth to prevent from drying out)

22) Chop strawberries into small cubes. Set aside.

33) In a small cup add water, cornstarch, sugar alternative, lemon juice, salt and vanilla. Place into a small pot and cook gently until mixture thickens and the sauce is clear in color. Place a few tablespoons of the thickened cornstarch sugar mixture into the chopped strawberries and mix. Set aside.

44) Take about 4-6 of the spring rolls sheets together apart from the rest. Set out on the counter and use your heart cookie press to through your 4-6 sheets. You will need 2 heart shaped single pieces of spring roll for each Valentine Strawberry Kiss. Repeat process until you make enough hearts.

55) Separate the heart shaped spring roll sheets so they are only 1 layer. Be careful as the spring roll pastry is very delicate. If you want to make 12 hearts then you will need a total of 24 single heart shaped spring roll sheets.

66) Lay one heart shaped spring roll on the counter and brush the outside with a little egg wash. Then scoop about 1 teaspoon of your strawberry filling in the middle (keep the filling away from the sides and leave about 1/4 space around the edges to make a seal) Now here is your chance to get creative. Maybe instead of strawberries you want nutella or bananas or even cheese instead. Let your creative side rule and let me know what you come up with.

77) Lay another heart shaped spring roll warpper on top and press the edges to seal.

88) Place a little oil in a frying pan and bring temperature up to a medium high heat and carefully add your Valentine Heart Kisses to the pan. Fry gently for 1-2 minutes on each side or just until golden brown and crispy on the outside. Remove from pan.

99) Decorate and garnish Valentine Heart kisses with melted 70 percent chocolate, fresh strawberries, whipping cream or whatever your little heart desires. Serve warm or at room temperature and watch your loved ones and families smile.

  • Well aren’t these just the cutest! What a fun and delicious idea Bam. My daughters would love these and love to make them. Happy Valentine’s to ya 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy Valentines Day to you and the Family! This would be a great kid friendly dessert to make together. For certain they could do all of the assembly and then depending on their ages maybe an adult could help with the quick fry at the end. (I suppose that one could bake these as well but i would need to test that theory first.) Take Care, BAM

  • Nicely done! Like the idea of a strawberry filling! Too bad we are traveling or I’d try it… Interesting, Australia is probably the only country I’m aware of that doesn’t really get into the whole Valentine’s thing at school.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Martyna… I hope you are having a super time during your travels and looking forward to reading about the culinary inspirations. Take Care, BAM

  • Really cute! And they look awfully tasty. This really is a recipe where you can change out flavors and play with things – you could make these a dozen times, and each one could be different. Really fun. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy Valentines John and to Mrs. KitchenRiff too! I can think of at least a dozen versions to make every one palate happy and even some savory ones as well. I guess the sky is the limit with this idea. Give it a try and let me know what drink you end up pairing it with. Take Care, BAM

  • Very clever and cute indeed. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy Valentines Day Norma! How about if we change up the ingredients. Maybe we can stuff some of the hearts with some sweet black bean paste and then top off with a slightly honey sweetened compote of gogi berries, Chinese dates and jasmine. How fun is that! I hope you are doing well. Take Care, BAM

  • This looks insanely good and I’ve never seen anything like it which makes me like it even more!!!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy Valentines Day to you and your family! This idea was created by what we call the lack of ingredients Bam’s Kitchen’s Mother’s Hubbard situation. Sometimes the most interesting recipes are created by the law of substitution. Happy cooking! BAM

  • WOW!!! Your hearts look so fancy dancy … just like your new site 🙂 I may be making them today!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Brenda thank you for your kind comments. I am hoping that if I spend enough time around you that all your sweet and creative ideas will rub off on me. You always have such fun ideas for sweet treats and my teenagers adore your recipes. Take Care, BAM

  • I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe. And those strawberries are definitely calling me.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you and Happy Valentines Day to you Kate!

  • I love this

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy Valentines Day to you! I can’t wait to head over to your site to see what lovely things you have been making in the kitchen. Take Care, BAM

  • What a beautiful idea, love it. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!!!! What a great way & day to roll out the new website. I love the looks of it. It has such a clean & bright look to it, very appealing to the eye, just like all of your recipes. I really like how you’ve got the recipe in the box at the end – makes it so much easier to print off, which I find I do with so many of your ideas. I can see how much work you must have put into getting this up & running, but great job.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Diane, thank you very much for your kind word and support! Wishing you and your family a very special Valentines day. I also love using my new format as it has so much more potential and much easier to keep things organized for the reader. I say it is a “work in progress” as I am not done and have many more fun ideas for the site but for now I just need to get my backlog of recipes posted and out there before I forget what I put in my dishes. Please take care and I am looking forward to reading more humorous stories from dianeskitchentable. Take care, BAM

  • Anne ~ Uni Homemaker

  • So cute! What a nice thing to make for your family. Happy Valentine’s Day BAM!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy Valentine’s Day Korena! These are not elaborate or take hours in the kitchen like many of your baking master pieces (you are the baking pro) However, these are perfect when you have last minute guests and no time but want something special. Do you have any of those little lemon danish’s left or did your kids inhale them? Take Care, BAM

  • Another great use of sping roll wrappers very creative Bam.
    Have a happy Valentines day

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy Valentines Day to you too Ray! I think that spring wrappers must actually have an expiration date, not that I have ever found one on the package, but they are great in desserts. Take Care, BAM

  • Buona sera, BAM!
    May I just say how nice you new home is? Your hard work really paid off and the site is perfect for displaying your posts and photos. Well done!
    And what a nice treat for Valentine’s day! Each looks the part and tastes like one expects a Valentine confection should taste.
    I hope you and your family spent a wonderful Valentine’s Day together, BAM!

      Happy Valentines Weekend to you and your family Geni! Do you ever feel like sometimes your family expects something always special from us. I do not know about you but I have been chained to the stove by my teenage boys ever since I started Bam’s Kitchen. Have a super weekend. BAM

  • Did somebody say Nutella, again! You’re driving me crazy, BAM, leading me astray. I’m going to pin this one anyways and come back to it at a future date when my resistance is higher, and make it with strawberries. Which reminds me, somewhere today I saw strawberries hollowed out and stuffed with N… Arghhhh!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Kathleen, once you have one taste of nutella it is like an addiction. I’m sorry I should have warned you or put you on alert. I think they sell the industrial sized containers at costcos if you are so inclined…LOL. Thanks so much for the pin and wishing you a very special Valentine weekend. Take Care, BAM

  • These are just little beauties! What an amazing treat for the holiday — hope you had a wonderful one! Love the new site!!!!!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Danny and wishing you a very sweet Valentine weekend. Take care, BAM

  • How sweet are you? These are so cute and clever 🙂

      Wishing you and your family a very sweet and happy Valentines weekend. The boys and I had fun making them. Let me rephrase that… I had fun making them and the boys had fun eating them. Take care, BAM

  • These are just darling Bam! What a neat idea! Happy belated Valentine’s Day 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Kristi and a very Happy Valentines weekend to you! Take care, BAM

  • These are beautiful little Valentine’s day gifts, straight from the heart! They look very delicious!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy Valentines weekend to you and your family. Thank you and I think I made my hearts were too small as my teenagers inhaled them in one bite. Take care, BAM

  • These are definitely better than a card!

    • Bams Kitchen

      They taste a lot better too… LOL. Wishing your family a wonderful Valentines Day weekend. BAM

  • Oh these are to die for!
    Good to read you again, BAM and congrats on your new blogging platform: it really looks great!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Stefano, it so good to hear from you. Thank you for your kind words and looking forward to keeping in touch. Take care, BAM

  • Great idea to go sweet. The strawberries and all suggested fillings sound yum… I’ll throw a little scoop of ice cream on there too!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Wendy! I love where your head is at as icecream on top of this would be perfect. I have made these many times with many different fillings and it is very fun to switch it up. Wishing you a super week. Take care, BAM

  • What a nice idea Bobbi! I bet they were gone quickly! 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Sibella. I am glad that I kept a few back for myself as you know when I bring sweet treats or anything to the table, unmonitored, it is inhaled. Take care, BAM

  • Hey, Bam! I saw these on Facebook the other day. They are adorable! I bought a bunch of strawberries the other day. I know they’re not in season, but I really just can’t help myself.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Heather, so nice to hear from you! I know that strawberries are not in season, but it was Valentines day. However, this idea would work well with many kinds of fruit such as apples, bananas, even pumpkin and nutella. Super easy to make and the kids lived making them into the heart shapes. Take Care, BAM

  • Sugoi! What a great idea to use spring roll to make heart shape. I would roll up (yes I’m not so creative) but never thought of making into a shape…. love this idea!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Arigato gozarimashita Nami-san, A fun activity to do with your little ones. Take Care, BAM

  • Liz

    Mmmmmm….what a yummy way to show your family you love them! It would work for mine 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Liz. You know the best way to a mans heart is through his stomach… I hope my boys are feeling the love. Take care, BAM

  • Yummmmm……

  • Very cute idea. The spring rolls look mouthwatering.

  • Hi Bam,
    Happy Valentines day! These look so yummy and so very creative! Love!

  • oh wow. these little packages are so adorable and pretty. Really sweet and romantic recipe to serve the love ones! 😉

  • This is such a beautiful and delicious idea for Valentine’s!

  • What a beautiful Valentine’s Dessert! We had leftovers…I’m such a bad food blogger wife 😉

  • Hotly Spiced

    It’s great that you didn’t let the day come and go without celebrating it. And what a lovely and creative dessert you came up with. It looks very yummy. And like you say; I can think of many other fillings for these hearts and yes, I’m particularly thinking of Nutella xx

    • Bams Kitchen

      Nutella would rock in this recipe. I have an addiction to nutella and can’t have it in the house or otherwise I would just eat it straight up by the spoonfuls. Hence, I had to use jam for this recipe. Take care

  • What a great idea for a tasty dessert BAM, and I love the heart shapes.
