Chocolate melted hearts

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup unsweetened chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons condensed milk

 

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and white sugar until fluffy. In an other mixing bowl, beat in eggs, vanilla extract and cocoa powder. Mix creamy butter with beaten eggs, until well combined.

Combine dry ingredients (all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt) and gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Cover with plastic bag and chill for 2 hours. Roll chilled dough on a floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness.

Cut with cookie cutter and place 1 inch apart on greased sheets. Bake at 375 degrees Faraday for 5 minutes, or until lightly brown. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.

Melt unsweetened chocolate chips with condensed milk over double boiler. Spread carefully over hearts.
