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. ;)
