See, look. I even got all festive and made heart shaped cookie dough bites to celebrate. Never mind that I’m easily distracted when shaping cookie dough and it took be approximately 3.7 hours to make them all. It was worth it.
Because aren’t they just so cute?
I love Valentines Day because it’s one of the only times ever when you’re allowed to eat obsene amounts of chocolate and it’s not even weird. I mean, I could eat 4 cupcakes and no one would even look at me funny. I wish everyday was Valentines Day.
But since that’s not the case, I’ve gotta make that one dessert filled day of the year count. Which is why I plan on having chocolate with every meal (and sometimes twice in one) on February 14. I’m thinking cupcakes for breakfast and a glass of chocolate milk. Lunch will be some sort of normal thing, followed by a cookie of course. Dinner should be some sort of mole dish, or maybe a chocolate chili. That’s sounds good.
Well, it’s gonne be
one three of these delicious chocolate drizzled cookie dough hearts!
Cookie Dough Hearts (or Balls)
- 1 15-oz can chickpeas
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
- 4 prunes
- 1 tbsp peanut butter (or another nut butter)
- 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (mini, of possible), plus more for melting
What do you plan on making or eating this Valentines Day?
I’m thinking that, along with these hearts, I’ll also make this cake and maybe try out a new recipe. One thing I can say for sure is that there will be a lot of chocolate!
