i’m posting this tonight in hopes that it gives you enough time to make these treats if you want before the big LOVE day!!

i have no idea what their real name should be, but i’m gonna call them…

i saw the idea and recipe here, and just adapted to make them heart shaped.

start with just a couple ingredients:
1 box Red Velvet Cake mix
1 stick of butter
2 eggs

now…i have to pause and show you this next tool. i’ve wanted one for about 3 years, have looked at them about 10 times in Walmart, and finally just spent the $5 for one. it was totally worth it!

this springloaded mini cookie scoop does WONDERS in getting cookies a uniform size (or for filling mini muffin tins, etc)
so using your new tool :) or a spoon, which will work just fine…

while cookies are cooling, make the filling by creaming together:

(note…i tried filling the cookies first, and then cutting the whole thing together. didn’t work as well! so cut first, then fill.)

scrape off excess filling from edges with an offset spatula or the dull edge of a knife.

now step back and admire your cute little cookie!
serve these Heartbreakers up to your little heartbreakers, and they’ll be sure to be your Valentine forever!
hope you’re having a “sweet” weekend,
