When bagels are made, ropes of dough are twisted into the familiar circular shape.
So why not twist them into heart shapes?
That’s what the bagel makers at Einstein Bros. Bagels and Noah’s New York Bagels have done—and they’ve thrown in some dried cranberries to replace the raisins in a cinnamon-raisin bagel.
The love-worthy bagels are available at select locations through February 14th.
To go with your bagels, how about making cranberry, strawberry or raspberry cream cheese? Even if you only have conventional bagels, pink cream cheese will make your Valentine’s Day breakfast special.
