Some things just go together. Peas and carrots. Bert and Ernie. Mac and cheese. One pair that I only recently discovered, and really love, is chocolate and cinnamon. My first taste was when I shared this Starbuck’s Chocolate Cinnamon Bread. I thought it was wonderful. So I looked through my cookbooks for anything with that combination and found this recipe for Chocolate Cinnamon Heart Cookies. Simple yet so pretty.
This recipe went together in just a few minutes. I made the dough while my dinner was in the oven, stuck it in the refrigerator overnight, and made the cookies the next day. They felt like they took no time at all to make.This would be a perfect recipe to make with kids. They could help cut out and then also dip the cookies in the chocolate after they have cooled. The sprinkle part would probably be the most fun!
I packaged a few in cellophane bags so you could see what a cute gift they make. I used different sized heart cookie cutters and tiny sprinkles. I also used Wilton Chocolate Melts but you could use any kind of chocolate you wanted or had on hand.
I hope everyone is doing OK…this winter weather is beginning to wear some of us (including me!) down a little. If you need a distraction you can look around at these other Chocolate Recipes!
