Next use a vegetable peeler  to make a v shape on the bottom of the carrot to form to bottom of the heart.  You might need to round off the side a bit too. If  you stand the carrot on end, and look DOWN the carrot it is easier to see the shape you are making.

Going to surprise my little sous chef Monday when he helps me get dinner ready. I have a wavy cutter with a big handle that he likes to chop vegetables with safely. This will surprise him. And hopefully his little sister when it's dinner time. I have a few nice big carrots that will be easy I hope to prep for my little grandson (5yrs.old) to make his wavy slices that will be hearts!
