Sprinkled with Love {Vday Cookies}

Since I'm sending K to school with a non-sugary treat with her Valentine cards...I still wanted to give the kids a batch of yummies. Check out my Pin-spiration  :-)

"Love" the way mine turned out...even if a few were a little overcooked!

All I did was make the dough as directed on the sugar cookie package. While chilling the dough in the fridge, I unwrapped all my chocolate hearts. Then I used a tbsp to scoop out each cookie from the dough, rolled it into a ball, rolled the ball around in sprinkles (found mine in the dollar bins at Target), then baked for 10 min.

After they were done, I let them cool for a few minutes, then transferred them to a wire rack.

Then I lightly pressed in a chocolate heart into the middle. The cookies were still very warm, which melted the bottoms of the hearts just enough to act as a 'glue'. Then leave them completely alone & let them cool for an hour or so, before putting them in a plastic container...you don't want a big melted mess!

BE CAREFUL... if you press on one again to check if it has cooled & re-hardened...you'll end up with this...a very smashed heart {whoops!! haha}:
