An easy and cute treat for valentine’s day.


  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp unsalted butter (125g) *room temp

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (100g)

  • 1/3 cup sugar (75g)

  • Large egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1+1/2 tsp or more of red food coloring

  • 1+2/3 cups flour (200g)

  • 1/2 to 1 tbsp cocoa powder (9 to 15g)

  • 1 + ½ tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp baking soda

  • A pinch of salt

  • White chocolate for the “hearts” or white chocolate chips


  • Using a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer, cream butter and sugars until fluffy.
  • Add in the egg, vanilla and a little bit of red food coloring, and mix until combined, remember to scrape the bowl down and mix again.
  • Mix in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. *If you’re JUST using white chocolate chips (not making the hearts) mix them in the dough in this step*
  • Roll the dough into 20 cookie dough balls (around 1+½ tbsp each one).
  • Let the cookie dough balls rest in the freezer for about an hour or in the fridge overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 356F/180C.
  • Carefully transfer to a baking sheet with parchment/wax paper and bake for 9-12 minutes.
  • While the cookies are baking, make the chocolate hearts using melted white chocolate and a heart shaped silicone mold, leave them in your freezer (I found these silicone molds on amazon and they have the one I used).
  • Once baked, leave them to cool on the tray for about 15 minutes and after that you can add the heart chocolates.
  • Let them cool for 10 minutes more and ENJOY!
