Valentine ice hearts, ice cream between two homemade chocolate cookies. Baked with love and therefore with extra flavor
Valentine’s Day, you love it or you hate it. Something in between doesn’t seem to exist. I think it’s a great idea for a day to do something special for your love, but you really do that every day anyway?
I hate the commerce around it, by buying a gift for your love. Just to easy. No. I like to do something special. A nice DIY, a delicious meal or bake something sweet. Like this Valentine ice hearts. Delicious ice cream surrounded by two chocolate biscuits. You can vary it to your own taste. I used strawberry ice cream (just because it’s so beautiful pink), vanilla ice cream (delicious with chocolate) and chocolate ice cream (if you’re a true chocoholic I can’t say no to that). Of course I used a heart shape for the cookies and the same cookie cutter for the ice cream. So it suited all nicely together.
- The cookie dough should be very cold. That way, the hearts won’t run out and they hold their shape (if you want more cookies bake tips, you’ll find them here. (Following these tips for baking cookies they simply can’t fail anymore).
- Roll the cookies out between two sheets of baking paper and remove the top sheet before you cut the hearts. If the dough should stick, put it briefly in the freezer.
- Allow the cookies to cool to room temperature after baking (otherwise the ice melts right away).
- Press the shape with a cookie cutter into the ice, take out and put it between two cookies. Then pack it in baking paper (so you do not get any ice crystals on the outside). Place the package for at least 20 minutes in the freezer so that it becomes hard. This way you can save them for a week.
