Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Valentine’s Hearts are irresistible cupid inspired dessert. Chocolate, peanut butter and cookie dough in the shape of a heart – do I need to say more?
It’s been barely a few days since I shared with you my Red Velvet Truffles . If you read my post then you know that I was determined, this year I want to make changes and I won’t make heart shaped Valentine’s treats like I did a last few years. But, never say never…
You may have read it, but obviously my dear hubby didn’t. He arrived from work yesterday and so proudly handed me a small package . It was a set of heart shape cookie cutters in different sizes. He said that was a little early Valentine’s gift. He had already learned that food bloggers make Christmas recipes for Halloween, and after Christmas and New Year we start baking Valentine’s desserts. So he assumed that I’ll need these cookie cutters . I did not want to disappoint him so I had to try them immediately. Finally, I really have to appreciate his good intentions, you must admit that rarely any husband would bought kitchen supplies.
And here I am again, going back to the good old hearts…but I have a good excuse. I wanted to return the love to my husband and decided to make him one of his favorite treats.
If you are wondering what does this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles have to do with heart shaped cookie cutter here’s the answers. I used recipe for popular cookie dough bars that you’ve already seen on many blogs, but I made a little twist. I didn’t make the classic bars. I used my new cookie cutters to cut off the hearts and than dipped them into the melted chocolate. I haven’t use my gift to bake good old cookies, because my husband is one of many who rather steal raw cookie dough than eat baked cookies. Whenever I bake cookies, especially those with chocolate chips he always seems to find something to do in the kitchen and while I turn around he managed to steal some cookie dough .Well, now he will get the whole portion for itself.
My husband didn’t even imagine what yummy surprised was waiting for him inside these irresistible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles. He probably thought that’s Oreo truffles or something like that. You can’t imagine how happy he was when take a first bite and find out that peanut butter cookie dough overloaded with chocolate chips was hidden inside crispy chocolate shell.
