There’s no better way to spread love than with a homemade chocolate treat on Valentine’s Day. These adorable heart shaped cookies are made with a basic chocolate shortbread and drizzled with more chocolate and heart shaped sprinkles. Best of all, the cookies are so cute that you don’t need to spend a fortune on fancy packaging. Wrap them in cellophane bags tied up with ribbon, and add a note for each of your valentine’s.
These chocolate sugar cookies boast wonderful chocolate flavor, crisp edges, and keep their shape when baked. I love that they also have a lot of room for decorating. Use your favorite cookie cutters and try my recipe for a chocolate glaze or butter cream frosting.
*Makes about 36 cut out cookies.
*To decorate, drizzle with melted chocolate or frost with buttercream frosting. Add sprinkles for even more pizzazz!
