Easy Chocolate Hearts

IMG_1516Here’s a fun thing for your g-free kids to help make this Valentine’s Day season, which for us, lasts throughout the month of February…

All you need are cookie cutters, chocolate chips or chocolate disks to melt, and toppings. This time we chose to use healthier options such as dried fruit, nuts and coconut, but you can also use sprinkles, M&M’s, etc.

IMG_1479Start with a tray that will fit into your freezer, lined with wax paper. Just place your cookie cutters onto the wax paper, melt the chocolate and (while holding the cookie cutter down with one hand) spoon it into each shape, pushing it around a little to fill the entire cookie cutter. Make the chocolate as thick as you want, then drop your toppings onto it, creating patterns if your g-free kid feels like it… After it hardens in the freezer, just pop each heart out of its cookie cutter and enjoy. These also make sweet gifts for grandparents, teachers and other family and friends.
