Chocolate Hearts

Yield: 100 Cookies
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Additional Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 33 minutes

These cookies look sweet as sugar and are simply irresistibly chocolaty!


For the dough:

  • 4.5 ounces (125 grams) cake flour *
  • 2.5 ounces (75 grams) cornstarch
  • 3.5 ounces (100 grams) sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (16 grams) vanilla sugar **
  • 1 teaspoon (3 grams) of cocoa powder
  • 2.5 ounces (65 grams) almonds, grated
  • 3.5 ounces (100 grams) dark chocolate, grated
  • 4.5 ounces (125 grams) butter, cold, cut
  • 1 egg

For the glazing:

  • 2 ounces (50 grams) dark chocolate coating
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. Quickly work all ingredients into a smooth dough. (see picture)
  2. Flatten the dough a bit and wrap it in foil (see picture) and let it rest in the fridge for about one hour.
  3. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 360 Fahrenheit top/bottom heat (180 degrees top/bottom heat). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  4. After the dough chilled in the fridge, roll out the dough on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1/5 inch (about 5 mm).
  5. Use a heart-shaped cutter to cut out cookies and place them on the prepared baking sheet. ***
  6. Knead the rest of the dough again and process in the same way until the whole dough is used up. If the dough gets too warm, let rest it in the fridge for a while.
  7. Now bake them in the preheated oven for approximately 13 minutes.
  8. Let the cookies cool down completely.
  9. Melt the chocolate with the coconut oil over a water bath.
  10. Sprinkle the chocolate hearts with chocolate using a spoon.
  11. Now, wait until the chocolate has set again.
  12. Keep the cookies in a tin. I always wait a day before I eat them, then they are softer. If they are too hard, just put an apple slice in the tin (but not directly on the cookies, maybe on parchment paper).


* For Germans type 405 flour

** For Germans two bags vanilla sugar

*** I have cut out big and small hearts
