Ingredients

  • 1 package refrigerated cookie dough, such as NESTLETOLL HOUSE Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour plus additional for rolling
  • 3-inch diameter heart cookie cutter
  • 1 ½ to 2-inch heart cookie cutter
  • 1 cup chocolate morsels, such as NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • Assorted Valentine sprinkles

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Crumble dough into medium bowl. Add flour; mix until combined.

Sprinkle work surface lightly with flour. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness, using additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Cut out hearts with the larger heart cutter. Transfer to ungreased baking sheets, placing about 2 inches apart. With smaller cutter, cut out heart in center of each big heart. Keep these smaller hearts; these hearts will be baked as well. Remaining scraps of dough can be rolled out again to make more hearts.

Bake larger hearts for 10 to 11 minutes and smaller hearts for 9 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Line one baking sheet with wax paper. Place large hearts with no center on prepared baking sheet.

Spoon small amount of melted chocolate in center of large hearts. Tap baking sheet to spread chocolate. Use remaining chocolate to lightly frost smaller hearts. Decorate melted chocolate with sprinkles. Refrigerate for 10 minutes to set chocolate. Store in single layer in airtight containers at room temperature.

Valentine Shopping Tip

Make sure you have all the recipes you are going to make ahead of time. Compile your grocery list from those recipes a week in advance. Make sure you allot enough time for the turkey to defrost.

Valentine Cooking Tip

Balance the amount of dishes prepared ahead and those put together last minute – serve cold dishes made in advance as well as items straight from the stove.
