Valentine Chalkboard Cookies


Inspired by a recent inquiry into wedding chalkboard cookies, I decided to make some Valentine Chalkboard Cookies!  This is my small test batch, but I'm sure I will be making more in February.  I also had a ton of sugar hearts (idea from Wedding Chicks pin) which I intend to use on cupcakes and such, but 2 cups of sugar makes a lot! I added a few to the cookies here and there.



If you don't like to do a lot of piping/frosting, these cookies are for you!  You can do them with as little as one color icing (borders are optional.)  I painted the lettering on with a small brush and white food coloring.  It does take a little patience and getting the right consistency on the food coloring can be tricky, but the effect is well worth the effort.

Happy (early) Valentine's Day!

*Tip: Don't paint "I Love Joe" on your cookies unless you indeed, love Joe. ;)
