Can be done any time

We make these with chocolate kisses and it is my brother's favorite cookie- no need to wait until the Nestle Crunch heart shaped chocolates are in the stores! Great hit at parties, too!

Heartfelt Treat!

These little gems aren't just for Valentine's Day! They turned out absolutely delicious (and I'm not even a big Butterfinger fan-I couldn't put them down!) and were very easy to make! I will definitely make these again!

My first treat!

I'm venturing into baking and choose this as my first treat. Since I'm not baking savvy it took me a bit longer to complete, but the outcome was worth it! My sweetheart loved these "sweetheart cookes"!

Easy and yummy

These are easy and good cookies. I made them with the 'kisses'. They tasted good and are easy to make. All ingredients right out of the pantry. The basketball team I made them for gobbled them up.
