Make Valentine's Day fun for the whole family with these simple 3-ingredient heart-shaped breadsticks!

My oldest son is 6 years old and very interested in learning to cook. Every weekend we choose a recipe and I teach him how to prepare it. Most of the recipes we have chosen to make have been desserts. This time, we went for something easier, but super fun and super cute for Valentine's Day, and we made these heart-shaped breadsticks.
You literally roll out the frozen dough in Parmesan cheese and garlic salt. Shape it into a heart, let it grow, brush it with a beaten egg and bake! So easy and so tasty! Even my 8 month old baby loved gnawing on these breadsticks. That was nice to see. 😉

Every time we have buns, breadsticks, garlic bread or pizza, I use Rhodes dough. It's too good and too easy to get the frozen dough out of my freezer and let it thaw for dinner time use. Also, I think it's important to note that we are obsessed with freshly baked bread, and Rhodes bread tastes homemade because it's freshly baked from its oven. That's why we use Rhodes white muffins for these heart shaped breadsticks. However, eventually I will have to teach my son how to bake bread from scratch, but not for now, and really, probably not while Rhodes is in business. 😉
We usually make a semi-chic pasta dinner for our entire family on Valentine's Day, and these heart-shaped breadsticks will go perfectly with her! Also, there is something about "fun food" that makes kids eat more. Not that my kids need help eating bread, but they sure did swallow these heart-shaped breadsticks!

Heart shaped bread sticks
- 12 Rhodes white rolls, thawed
- Grated Parmesan cheese (about 2 to 4 tablespoons)
- Garlic salt (about 2 teaspoons)
- 1 egg
- butter, for brushing hot breadsticks
Roll each breadstick on a long rope about ½ inch thick and over 13 inches long. Then sprinkle a little garlic salt and grated Parmesan cheese on your work surface and roll the breadstick into the toppings to cover the stick, leaving the ends bare for the next step.
Pinch the ends tightly creating a teardrop shape. Then pinch the top of the rounded end at one point, facing the same direction as the bottom point, creating a heart shape. Press more cheese and garlic salt into the bare areas of the heart. Repeat with each roll.
Place the heart-shaped breadsticks on a silicone-lined baking sheet about an inch apart, alternating directions to fit on a tray. Cover with a greased plastic wrap and let it grow for 30 to 45 minutes.
Beat an egg and brush it on the resurrected breadsticks. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden. Brush the top with butter and serve warm.
