My sweet little son is going through a lovey dovey phase. He prefers all his food to be served in the form of a heart. He slathers me with kisses and hugs. I know there will come a day when he will be embarrassed to show affection for mama. But for now, the sandwiches I eat usually look like this.
To make little chocolate heart cookies, use the classic tollhouse recipe and swap 1/2 cup cocoa powder for the chips. Leave out the nuts. Then roll the dough into a log with a diameter that is bigger than your smallest heart cutter. Wrap it in wax paper and let it chill in the fridge. When chilled, cut approximately 3/8 inch slices from the log then cut out mini heart shapes. I used this little heart cutter. Baking time will depend on the size of your cookies. I baked these 1 1/2 inch hearts for 8 minutes. Take the scrap dough and form a new log and rechill or you can do like I do just nom nom nom. I am hunting for smaller heart cutters now. I have this fantasy of making an all heart meal including mini carrot heart slices. Maybe I will somehow have to try and make my own extra mini heart cutter because I can’t find one small enough for my scheming!
