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.
