Googly-Eyed Heart Valentines

It all started with these silly stickers.

I felt the need to cookie them…but then was not at all happy with the results. These have the potential to be the cutest classroom valentine treats!

But as they were coming together, all I could think of was the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland.

And that was NOT the look I was going for!

My suggestion to you is to use 2 shades of red or pink, rather than my red and white combination. But that’s merely a suggestion.

What you’re going to need:

  1. A large heart cookie cutter as well as a smaller heart cookie cutter.
  2. Flooding consistency royal icing
  3. Optional: disco dust or sanding sugar
  4. Paint brush – only if you use the disco dust though…
  5. Piping consistency royal icing for face.
  6. Optional as well (but highly recommended): Cute bag toppers!

Let’s get started!

Cut out your large heart cookie and place it on your parchment paper covered baking sheet. Take the smaller heart and push down on the dough just hard enough to make an impression.

Bake them up!

I started with flooding the outside first. I added some red disco dust to these while wet. If you don’t have disco dust or have an

aversion to eating glitter, you can use sanding sugar. Or omit all together! Let the royal icing dry.

Once they’re dry, use your paint brush to brush off the excess disco dust and flood the center heart with royal icing. If you decided to take my advice, and go with 2 shades of the same color, you don’t need to wait as long before filling the center. I had to wait several hours so that there was no bleeding of red into the white.

Once your center heart is dry, you can start to add your face! I love how different and individual you can make each cookie. Be careful with the eyebrows though. No one wants an angry or worried heart! I used piping consistency royal icing for the faces but you can always use pre-made eyes for this project as well.

And then, since I wanted them to be classroom treats, I added a cute little topper to my bag. I printed it off (for free) from Inner Child Fun. You can find the toppers at:
