Frosted Cookie Hearts

Is there anyone else out there that just doesn’t get the hype
of Valentines Day?Honestly, do we need another ramped up Hallmark holiday?
I think it is kind of silly that we NEED a day reserved for
telling our loved ones how much we love them.Seriously…shouldn’t we be telling them EVERY day
how much we love them?

And I think it means more when it it asurprise
on a random day, rather than on an appointed day!Ok, just had to get that off my chest:-)(and no, my hubby and I don’t buy each other gifts for ♥ day)

But that doesn’t mean I can’t bake my family
a fun yummy HEART inspired dessert for tonight:-)

Because nothing says I love you more than chocolate…right?

I had some leftover chocolate chip cookie dough
and chocolate cake batter that was taking up space in my fridge…
what to do with it????

Break out the fun heart shaped silcon muffin pan
that I found in the $Spot at Target!!!

I went ahead and sprayed it with some baking spray,
and then put a teaspoon of cookie dough…

(recipe found HERE…just use all vanilla extract)

…in the bottom and push it around and up the sides
to form a cavity for the cake batter.
If you need more cookie dough, go right ahead…
it will just be yummier that way:-)

Then spoon in a teaspoon of cake batter
and try to keep it in the center of your dough.
Go ahead and grab another teaspoon of cookie dough
and flatten it slightly with your fingers.
Put that on top of the cake batter and
try to seal the edges of the cookie dough with each other.
This will keep the cake from leaking out.

Bake at 350* for 15-18 minutes.
(metal pans might bake a little bit faster)
Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes
before flipping them out carefully onto a tray!
Let cool completely.

Then top them with your favorite
chocolate butter cream and sprinkles!

See how yummy this looks!
I just HAD to cut one open to show you…

it is quite possible that I ate
this bad boy as soon as pics were done;-)

What????
I couldn’t post a recipe without taste testing it first.
It was done in the name of research!

I also wondered how good it would be with other things inside…
(I was totally inspired by this post by Jenny from Picky Palate)
…so, I raided my cupboard & used up some of the random
candies that were hiding in there.

How about some Reese Pb Cup Hearts baked inside???

Maybe you would rather have a
PB Snickers bar inside?((have you had these new snickers yet???
I think they are better than the original!))


ok, one last one…
maybe you are a butterfinger kinda person??

I love how the centers fall slightly after coming out of the oven…
the perfect spot for some more choc butter cream!

Ok, I am out of here!
I have a house to clean
and REAL food to make…because nothing says I love you more
to my husband than those 2 things!

Happy ♥ Day!!!

    I’m so glad to read your post! I am not into the hype of Valentine’s Day at all, but I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb. Everyone at work has been asking “What are you all doing for Valentine’s?” The answer – going home, eating dinner, and simply being together. That’s it. No roses, no chocolates. We are doing fondue for the first time so there’s a teeny hint of something special. Glad to know there is someone else out there who doesn’t give into all the hype! :)

    Sorry you feel this way about Valentine’s Day!! I tell my husband every day that I love him but today is neat to get a box of chocolates from him. Also I gave special goodie bags with a bow and a handmade tag to numerous friends. Just a day to tell your friends how special they are. Yes, I know we can do that any day but… do we???

    These look so yummy. It looks like you really went all out with the various candy. Man my hubby would be so excited if he came home from work to these for Valentines Day, but instead, take-out it will be! LOL!

    Srsly. . .wish I lived next door. However – I would weigh like over 200 lbs. if I did. I have a super big weakness for any baked goods, but esp. chocolate! Have you seen the new baking goodies at Target? It’s kid’s stuff and they’re so cute and fun! I can’t wait to start stocking up a little at a time. They remind me of Williams Sonoma.

    I know what you mean about the commercialized holidays that seem like nothing more than a vehicle to sell stuff, but I have to admit that I relish any opportunity to celebrate and make something yummy or festive — not just on those holidays, of course, but on perfectly random days as well. Thank you for sharing another top-notch recipe at “A Little Birdie Told Me…” Fabulous, as always! The cookie with the peanut butter cup particularly captured my fancy!
