DIY Heart Shaped Tortilla Chips

Is it too early to make Valentine’s Day treats?  Maybe not if love is celebrated all year long! These Heart shaped tortilla chips were just an added bonus and very fun for the kids. Add them to your Valentine’s Day occupational therapy activities or as a crunchy snack option to a sensory diet.
Whether you make star shaped tortilla chips or heart shaped chips, they are a fun little detail and perfect for dipping.  And this mama-to-be KNOWS her chips 😉

DIY Heart Shaped Tortilla Chips

We started with corn tortillas.  These had been sitting in the fridge for a while since I bought the wrong ones and no one liked them as wraps.  They came in handy for this recipe.  {While you are cutting hearts, preheat the oven to 350.}

I pulled out the smallest heart from my Heart Cutter Set
and started cutting hearts from the tortillas.

DIY shaped tortilla chips:

Once I had a pile of hearts cut out, I spread them out on my jelly roll pan.  Then I added a drizzle of olive oil over them
and tossed them around with a spatula to cover the hearts with olive oil.  These were thrown in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes.  I made sure to keep a close eye on them and pull them out every once in a while to flip the chips around.  At one point, I sprinkled a little chili powder on the chips.


If you are using regular or whole wheat tortillas, the amount of time needed to brown the chips may vary.  When we made our star shaped chips, it took 20 minutes to get them to a crunchy state.  And they puffed up a bit more than the corn tortilla version did. 

We dipped our DIY tortilla chips into a taco filling-type dip.  Perfect yumminess!
