Valentine's Spam Musubi

Want to make your valentine’s heart skip a beat? We’ve got a Hawaiian-style snack that’s sure to win their affection: Heart-Shaped Spam Musubi!

Spam musubi is one of the most popular snacks in Hawai‘i. Locals love them, and tourists who try them can’t get enough. We’ve made these onolicious treats available through a care package with all the ingredients and tools needed in a Deluxe Valentine’s Heart Musubi Care Package.

Start by getting that rice cooking and making heart-shaped Spam cutouts. You can also make toppings from scrambled eggs to add another fancy layer.

Cut nori seaweed strips

Prep nori (seaweed) strips by cutting them into thin pieces, about a quarter inch thick. Then mold the rice using either the heart shape mold or the rectangle rice molder. Hint: wet the mold first to keep rice from sticking.
