"Every year 18 of us get together for our annual 'Heart Party' in honor of Valentine's Day. Besides sharing a favorite craft, we bring 18 cookies and share a favorite recipe. This was mine from last year. The recipe is written using white chocolate, but you can use dark chocolate instead, or use half white and half dark. I like to decorate mine with candy sprinkles too." — Robin

semisweet chocolate chips
packed light brown sugar
unsweetened cocoa powder
12 (1 ounce) squares
1 1/4 cups
red food coloring
These turned out great, but we changed them a little. I wanted a light dough, so I replaced cocoa with same amount of flour. And we decorated the cookies with royal icing instead of dipping into chocolate. And finally, we made it a lot easier when we cut the cookies 1/4 inch thick instead of 1/8 inch. And instead of craft sticks, we used barbecue skewers inserted directly into the cookie dough before baking. We do many, many cookie bouquets and cookie pops and we never soak our skewers and we've never had a problem. Anyway, thanks for a great recipe, Robin.
These were ok. The cookie by itself was kind of dry and bland. It was better with the chocolate. My 4 year old daughter did like decorating and cutting them out though! I did like how you rolled the dough between the wax paper and froze it for a few minutes, easy and turned out good. I may look for a better chocolate cookie recipe next time though!
Very good! They took a bit of time to make from start to finish but were well worth it. I tasted without the white chocolate coating and thought they were dry; but tasting a dipped and cooled cookie I found them to be perfectly crunchy and delicious. The icing didn't set as expected, but I used powdered egg whites instead of the real thing. A 3" heart is much too big; a smaller, 2" is the perfect size for school parties. Thanks for the recipe! I’ll be making more this weekend!
Made these for the grands for Valentine's day. I agree w/ so many others...w/out the chocolate these were dry & tasteless. (I thought they tasted like cocoa-flavored cardboard). I suspect that the dryness may be necessary to maintain the integrity of the cookie as a lollipop though...if they were moist, they would probably crumble. They looked great & tasted fine after dipping them in the chocolate so I will probably use the recipe again. I sprinkled mine w/ red colored sugar before decorating but no way am I gonna post a pic & put it up next to SugarPlumsCookie's. ;o) Thansk for sharing the recipe Robin...my grands enjoyed them & I had fun making them.
I give this recipe 5 stars for looks, but 2 stars for taste, i followed this recipe to a T, but alas... I made these for my son's preschool class valentines party, they looked awesome and held together great (i thought for sure they'd fall right off the stick) the kids ate them and enjoyed them. My husband and i love cookies, but not these. I think the recipe calls for to much cocoa, and not enough sugar. The cookies tasted like cocoa powder. They were really hard too.
this was an ok recipe. it was the hardest cookie i have ever made. they took me 3 days to make and the recipe was miss leading on how easy they were.
I too thought the cookie itself was dry and not very flavorful. Also, I didn't have enough white chocolate to coat the cookies. But I used the conversion chart to double the recipe.
I must say though that these all sold within 5 minutes for our PTA fundraiser!
Made these for my sons easter party (not hearts lol) and they where a really big hit! i even bought little vases and put fake flowers with some of the lollipop cookies sticking up out of the flowers for his teachers! Was a really big hit!!!!!!!! :0)
