My Valentine cookies are simple this year, but still CUTE! Two-Tone Chocolate Heart Cookies!

What makes these Valentine's Day cookies easy? ONE consistency of royal icing.

I originally planned to outline these in black icing, then flood with red and pink, but I realized that the dark chocolate cookie actually acts as a visual outline.

How to Make EASY Two-Tone Heart Decorated Cookies.

Mix up your royal icing and divide into two bowls. Tint one bowl red and the other pink. Cover both by pressing plastic wrap directly onto the icing. 

Swap the tips on the squeeze bottles for #3 tips. Or, fit icing bags with #3 tips. 

Add water, a bit at a time, to one of the bowls of icing. We'll start with pink, but it doesn't matter. Thin until a ribbon of icing dropped back into the bowl disappears in about 4 seconds. This is a little thicker than I thin it for filling outlines. 

Cover the bowl with a damp dishtowel and let sit for several minutes. Uncover, stir, and pour into a squeeze bottle.

Use the icing to create an "outline" and immediately fill it with the same icing. Use a toothpick to guide icing and pop large air bubbles as needed. Do the pink sections on all of the cookies. 

Let the cookies set for about an hour. Letting the first color set up for a bit helps prevent bleeding.

Repeat the process with the red icing, completing the heart shapes. Use a toothpick to bring the icing right to the edge of the pink icing. 

Let the cookies dry uncovered for 6-8 hours or overnight.
