These cutie hearts are super simple to make and look adorable on top of cupcakes, cookies, or any baked item. Even better, garnish them with white morsels and they make pretty little stand-alone treats.
1 cup (6 ounces) NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Dark Chocolate Morsels
NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Premier White Morsels (optional)
1.Melt chocolate morsels in a microwave safe container for 30 seconds. Stir chocolate and then continue to heat for 30 more seconds. Stir again. If needed, heat for an additional 10 seconds.
2.Place a plastic baggie into a tall kitchen glass and press it down. Fold the edges of the baggie over the top of the glass to secure. When chocolate is done melting, pour it into the baggie. Lift the baggie out of the glass and gently press all of the chocolate to the lower corner of the baggie, removing as much air as possible. Now press and seal the baggie. Cut off a very small tip from the corner.
3.Pipe hearts onto parchment paper. To make a chocolate heart outline, simply pipe the outside shape of the heart. To make a chocolate heart candy, pipe the outline of the heart then fill in interior with chocolate. Chill chocolate hearts for 1 hour. If desired, melt white morsels using same directions listed above. Place melted white morsels in plastic baggie, snip corner, and drizzle over dark chocolate hearts. Use the hearts to decorate cupcakes, cookies, cakes, or serve alone.
