Homemade Chocolate Hearts

These chocolate hearts are perfect for the last-minute gifter like myself! Why? Because you probably have all the ingredients you need in your kitchen, and they only take a few minutes to make!

Ingredients to Make Chocolate Hearts:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Toppings (such as M&Ms, cinnamon hearts, sprinkles, nuts, etc.)

Directions to Create Chocolate Hearts:

1. In a microwave-safe dish, melt the chocolate chips according to the package directions. Remember to melt them a little at a time...if you overcook them, chocolate will burn!

2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

3. Stir melted chocolate, and before it hardens, put it into a disposable decorating bag. I never spend the money on decorating bags, so if you don't want to use one, you can also use a normal gallon sandwich/freezer bag. Drop the chocolate inside, twist the top (use the twist tie from your bread to hold it closed if needed), and cut off one corner to create an opening.

4. Squeeze several "balls" of chocolate into your parchment paper. Don't worry about getting them perfect...you'll spread them out in the next step.

5. Use a spoon to shape each chocolate spot into a heart shape. Before the chocolate hardens, add your toppings (M&Ms, cinnamon hearts, sprinkles, etc.)

6. Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes, or until chocolate is hardened.
