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 for chocolate cinnamon heart cookies 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.

Chocolate Cinnamon Heart Cookies Tips:

  • 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!
  • These make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Think school parties or teacher gifts.
  • You can package them in cellophane bags tied with twine or use my free bag topper printable.

  1. Love the Valentine heart shaped cookies.
    Is it plain flour you have used ?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      I used regular all-purpose flour. Enjoy!

  2. I made 2 batches of these. The first ones lasted maybe 2 days in our house. So I had to make a 2nd batch to give to my son’s teachers. They raved about them! Big hit with us! Amazing blog all around!

  3. Tanya Simms says:

    These were as easy to make and as delicious as you promised. I will definitely make them again. Instead of dipping them in chocolate I swirled a design with cookie icing. Love these!

  4. Lucia Donahower says:

  9. mattsgramma says:

    Thanks for the chocolate cinnamon cut out cookies recipe!

  10. This recipe sounds yummy and I plan to make it for Church fellowship, but…how many cookies will get in one batch? I guess I don’t understand the knife and fork image.

    Thanks! Gail

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Gail,
      My apologies for responding so late to this…it got lost in my spam folder. It’s no wonder you don’t understand the knife/fork image because I never filled in the quantity number on my recipe grid! I will fix that right now. The recipe makes about 30 cookies. Again, I hope I’m not too late.

  11. Ann, you always have such pretty ideas. I love this cookie and bag topper. I teach Sunday school to children and this will be a project thy will enjoy doing. Bless you and thank you.

  12. Irene Kimball says:

    Yum, would love to taste one!

  13. Hi Ann~
    You are so sweet to always give print outs.
    I was wondering where you purchased the top to the cellophane bag.

    And there it is at my fingertips to print off.
    Thank you so much.
