But first, let’s make some chocolate heart cookies! You guys, these are so moist and chewy but thin and delicate, I really really love how they turned out. And it turns out I’m super into cookie cutters, so it’s one of those fun-for the whole family kinda treats.

Chocolate Heart Cookies

In your bowl, mix together the almond flour, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, and sea salt. Add the ghee, egg, and vanilla. Fold until combined. 

Place the dough in between two pieces of parchment paper or cling wrap and roll it until 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut 12 hearts and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes. 

Chocolate Heart Cookies

Allow the cookies to sit on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. In a small bowl, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. 

Dip half the heart in the chocolate and place it back on the cooling rack or onto a piece of parchment paper. Add sprinkles on top of the melted chocolate and chill for 5 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
