Nutella Heart Sprinkle Cookies

Nutella Heart Sprinkle Cookies

...because you NEED one more treat for Valentine's Day. You do!

These peanut butter blossom-ish cookies are made with Nutella instead of peanut butter. There's also a bit of cocoa powder in the dough. Rolled in Valentine sprinkles (nonpareils) just before baking, the cookies have great crunch!

One of my favorite things about peanut butter blossoms holds true here...that chocolate heart pressed on top stays a little soft. So good! So pretty! So Valentine-y!

Did I mention that they're a snap to make? No? Well, they're a snap to make, so if you're looking for a last-minute cookie for lunch boxes, school parties, or to take to the office, you've found it!

I chose three faces that I thought captured Valentine's Day: the wink, the kissy face, and the heart eyes. I'll admit to using all three of these on a regular basis.

They're fairly simple to make, especially with one trick I'm going to show you for the base layer. I'll also share the step-by-step decorating instructions, the size cookie cutter for the perfect emojis, as well as recipes. Woo hoo!

I'm not sure how many times I've walked past this unassuming little box of chocolate-covered almonds assuming they were just that - chocolate-covered almonds.

For some reason, the small print caught my eye a couple of weeks ago. These are dark chocolate almonds WITH sea salt and turbinado sugar. A 10-ounce package costs $4.79.
