I’m always on the hunt for festive Valentine’s Day recipes that don’t necessarily require pink and red food coloring to be involved. I’m not opposed to it don’t get me wrong, but it’s nice to have the option of a more natural looking treat that still packs a festive punch. These cookies are not only a favorite for their winning flavor combo and perfect cookie texture, but they’re just so darn cute aren’t they?
Similarly to the favorite Christmas variety that uses a chocolate kiss or peanut butter cup, this cookie involves a chocolate heart getting pressed into a warm peanut butter cookie. Any variety/brand of chocolate hearts will do, but I found that using the Reese’s brand was perfect as it added even more creamy peanut butter goodness. Freezing the chocolate ahead of time keeps them firm in the warm cookie and once the cookies cool you have a pretty perfect V-day treat.
