Chocolate Filled Valentine Sugar Cookies

Chocolate Filled Valentine Sugar Cookies

It's what's on the inside that counts -- that's why these sweet sugar cookie hearts are filled with chocolate!


18 sandwich cookies


  • 4 (1.55 oz) milk chocolate candy bars
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup Domino® Granulated Sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • additional chocolate for decorating
  • 18 craft or lollipop sticks


Unwrap chocolate candy bars. Break each bar into small pieces; set aside.

Beat butter and sugar together in large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. In separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to sugar mixture. Divide dough in half; shape each section into a disc. Wrap each disc in plastic wrap; chill 1 to 2 hours, until firm enough to handle.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

On lightly-floured surface, roll out one-half of dough at a time, to 1/4-inch thickness. Use heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out even number of hearts and place half on prepared cookie sheet. Add one small chocolate piece in center of each heart. Insert sticks lengthwise, just below the chocolate. The stick should be at least one inch into the cookie. Moisten the edge of the cookie lightly with water and cover with another heart-shaped cookie. Pressing gently, seal cookie edges.

Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until lightly browned at edges. Cool on wire rack. When cookies have cooled completely, melt remaining chocolate and drizzle on top of cookies.


To melt chocolate, place in a microwave-safe bowl, cook for 30 seconds. Stir and continue for intervals of 15 seconds, stirring in between until melted.
