Valentine’s Day is so close! Guess how my husband and I are celebrating? By doing nothing. I will probably make him dinner like any other night and I may eat chocolate, like any other night. But this year, we do have a hot tub! So the hot tub will probably be included in our night. We’re romantic as sh*t.
You know what romantic thing we ARE doing? Getting Colorado-married tomorrow! Finally. I tried to get my Colorado license changed back in May since I had already changed my name through Social Security and they informed me that we had to get married in Colorado before I could change anything…even though Social Security had already changed my name. Stupid. And, well, we put that sh*t off because my husband works all the time. But he is leaving early tomorrow so we can head down to the courthouse, get hitched, then go to our favorite steakhouse! Too bad my wedding dress is 100% wrinkled and has lipstick and red wine stains everywhere or I would totally sport it. Totally.
I think the most exciting part of Valentine’s Day is seeing 50 Shades Darker. I know everyone thought that the first movie sucked, but I loved it. Sex, love and money…what is there to hate?! Sure, if you hate sexual tension, then maybe that’s not the movie for you. But I’m into it! And I never finished reading the second book so I have no idea what happens. And need to find out! The 50 Shades series is pretty much my non-Mormon version of Twilight. Kind of. Not really, but kind of. I miss those books. Anywho, I’m packing up my girlfriends and we are going to head to a theatre to watch it with other females. It’s gonna be weird. And wonderful.
OH! The one thing I’m actually doing on Valentine’s Day is getting my face numbed up and lasering the crap out of it! Exciting! I talked about my favorite laser recently and I’m doing it again on Valentine’s Day and it’s gonna be a real good time!
Wow. This whole conversation in this post is slightly pointless. Which is truly a shame because these cookies are a really REALLY good time. They’re absolutely delicious. And extremely easy to make. I gave multiple away after I made them so I wouldn’t eat all of them, but then I was so sad to see them gone. Clean ingredients, simple steps, and the perfect little treat. If you want to make it even more “romantic” then top these with ice cream. Totes romantic.
Go get chocolate wasted!
- In a double boiler or in the microwave, melt together chocolate chips and coconut oil until completely smooth and combine. Use a spoon to scoop the mixture into a heart silicone mold then place in the freezer to freeze for at least 2+ hours. I froze mine overnight to be safe.
- Once chocolate is hardened completely, pop the hearts out of the mold and place on a plate and keep in the freezer while the cookies bake.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut cookie dough into 8-10 cookies, shape them into round shapes then place on a parchment lined baking sheet to cook for about 10 minutes, until they are slightly browned on the edges.
- Pull cookies out of oven and hearts out of the freezer. You'll want to have a plate ready to go for these cookies to go on so they can go into the freezer right away. While the cookies are still warm, press a heart into the middle of each cookie then quickly put them in the freezer to set for at least 2 minutes or so. This will keep the chocolate from melting into the cookie and becoming a giant chocolate blob instead of a heart.
- Store in fridge but I highly recommend microwaving for less than 30 seconds before eating because it warms the cookie and softens the heart just a tad!
