    Easy Dark Chocolate ~ Dipped Heart Cooki

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1 roll ~ refrigerated sugar cookie dough
    1/4 to 1/2 cup all ~ purpose flour
    2 cups semisweet dark chocolate chips
    1 tablespoon shortening
    Colored pink or red sugar


    Heat oven as directed. Remove half of cookie dough from wrapper; refrigerate
    remaining refrigerator cookie dough until needed. Sprinkle about 3 tablespoons
    of the flour onto the work surface; coat sides of half of dough with flour. With
    a rolling pin, roll out dough to 1/4 ~ inch thickness, adding additional flour
    as needed to prevent the rolling pin of sticking.

    With a floured 3 ~ inch heart ~ shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts. Gently
    remove the heart from the cutter and brush off the excess flour from hearts;
    place cookies 2 inches apart on a ungreased cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining
    half of the cookie dough.
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until the cookies are light golden brown. Don't over
    cook. Cool 1 minute; gently remove cookies on to a cooling rack. Cool
    completely, about 15 minutes.

    In a 1 ~ quart saucepan, heat dark chocolate chips and shortening over low
    heat, stirring occasionally, until dark chocolate chips are melted and smooth.
    Remove from heat. Dip half of each heart cookie into the melted dark chocolate,
    allowing excess dark chocolate to drip off; place on a waxed paper or parchment
    paper ~ lined cookie sheets. Sprinkle with pink or red colored sugar.
