Cupid’s Secret Kiss Cookies

IMG_3844

Do you remember when you were in elementary school and got to decorate baskets or papers bags for valentine’s day. Do kids still get to do that? If I got to decorate one today, it would be the cheesiest thing ever – there would be tons of sparkles, tons of paper lace … I’d go straight Martha Stewart on that bad boy!!

Why don’t we get to do fun stuff like that at work – seriously kids, I know it sounds so messed up, but DON’T BE IN ANY RUSH TO GROW UP … I mean yea, it’s cool .. I get to eat cookies any time of the day, I technically don’t have a bed time ( granted, I’m seriously dead tired by 11:00!!), and I suppose there’s no home work … unless you count; running errands – cooking – cleaning – laundry – paying bills … seriously SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY.

Eat as many fruitroll-ups as possible,  and pop tarts … and make cookies, and then eat them all warm from the oven. Okay, so maybe you can be any age to do that!!

Look at these puppies, just chillin’ out maxin – relaxin … heh, they look like regular everyday red velvets don’t they?!!?

Directions:

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl.

Gradually add flour and cocoa powder .

Beat on low-speed until well blended.

Repeat with remaining dough.

Chill all of the dough balls for 1 hour ( this allows the cookie to keep it’s ball shape)

Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 12 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Roll in powdered sugar.
