Chocolate & Buttercream Heart Cookies
These heart shaped chocolate cookies were sandwiched together and filled with a buttercream icing colored pink for Valentine’s Day.
My idea was to make a thin chocolate cookie that was somewhat crispy, like an Oreo. I used a basic sugar cookie recipe, and substituted half of the flour with a good cocoa powder.
The filling is the same recipe I used in my thumbprint cookie icing recipe. I was pretty frugal with the icing here, however, you could easily double the recipe and make the filling nice and thick.
The cut out cocoa hearts were pretty tasty by themselves, but not super sweet.
On their own, they would be more suited for dunking in coffee or milk.
