These chocolate dipped sugar cookies are simple to make and fun to decorate!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I had shared earlier in the month that we are not huge celebrators of Valentine’s Day; but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the yummy chocolate treats that go along with it!
I was in the baking mood so I rummaged through the cabinets and found some sugar cookie mix. I had just picked up a heart shaped cookie cutter for another project that I never got around to since we all were down for the count with a germ bug these past two weeks. So I figured I’d make some heart shaped cookies!
We didn’t have any frosting and I find plain sugar cookies a little bland. Don’t get me wrong, I’d still eat them plain…but they always taste that much better with some extra something on them.
So I decided to dip them in melted chocolate! I had some extra chocolate chips left over from when I made Magic Cookie Bars. I dumped them in a bowl, heated them on 50% in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until they were melted.
I dipped one side of each cookie in the melted chocolate and placed them on some wax paper to harden. Before the chocolate was hardened, I added some M&M’s to each cookie. Sprinkles would also work great for this! To speed up the process, I popped them in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
If you want to make these chocolate dipped sugar cookies for non-Valentine’s day treats, you could cut out circles and make them the same way. They are sure to be yummy in any shape!
