Homemade Raspberry Heart Shaped Pop Tarts for Valentine's Day

We've made Pop Tarts before and absolutely loved them.  Who doesn't love a good Pop Tart???  We've even made them over a campfire.  So making them for Valentine's Day was a no brainer.  Heart shaped, filled with Homemade Jelly?  Yes, please.
