Have ever been voted best mom of the year by your kids? I was the day these Valentine cookies were waiting for my kids when they got home from a long day at school. It’s love like that that keeps me going on a day-to-day basis. There was a ton of cheering, shouting, hugs, smiles, and kisses when I gave each kid a plate of cookies. The best part is…they are so easy and you can be voted best mom of the year too if you make your kids these Valentine’s Chocolate Chip Cookies this year! Surprise them or better yet..have them help!
What’s better than one fabulous heart-shaped Valentine treat? 12 heart-shaped Valentine treats from my friends in the 12 months, 12 bloggers, 12 ingredients group! We each created an amazing treat for you this month. I hope you will stop by their sites and check out their amazing treats. You will find links to all these wonderful creations below my recipe.
To create these adorable, bite-sized treats you need some chocolate chip cookie dough. I’ve used pre-made dough, I’ve made chocolate chip cookie dough from scratch, I’ve even used a gluten free/dairy free dough too….it all works. So depending on how much time you have to make these Valentine’s Chocolate Chip Cookies..use the best cookie dough method for you.
In order to fill the cookies, you will need a pan that bakes an indent into to the cookies. I used a pan, like this one, to bake the cookies to have a little indent cavity….which makes for easy filling. I used semi-sweet chocolates and also red candy melts to keep them festive! Of course an assortment of Valentine’s sprinkles is a must too.
So…are you going to be voted best mom in the world this Valentine’s Day? I hope so!
Valentine’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Make chocolate chip cookie dough according to recipe (or use premade cookie dough). Fill cavity of mold about 2/3rds full and bake according to instructions or until lightly golden brown. Allow cookies to cool for 10 minutes and then take them out of mold and let them continue to cool for about 20 minutes on a cooling rack. (Use a butter knife or skewer to help cookies out of mold, but use caution to not break them apart.)
- Meanwhile, melt chips (and candy melts in a separate bowl) in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and then return to microwave in 15-0 bursts, stirring in between each time until melted and smooth. Let it cool just about minute or so and then pour chocolate into a zip top baggie and red melts into another baggie. Cut a small snip in one corner of the chocolate and fill half of the cookies with chocolate. Repeat for remaining cookies with the red melts. Top with a variety of holiday sprinkles.
