Chocolate Dipped Heart Shape Cinnamon Cookies

Chocolate dipped heart shape cinnamon cookies - an easy-to-make and a special Valentine’s Day treat for loved ones !!




Nothing beats the homemade cookies for Valentine’s Day to share with friends and family. These heart shape cinnamon cookies are so simple but delicious. The aroma of cinnamon in the cookie, hmmm !!! can't be described. It's just awesome.  




The spiciness of cinnamon and the sweetness of chocolate are perfectly balanced here. If desire, then just decrease the amount of cinnamon as mentioned below in ingredients.These cookies are made with 100% wheat flour (atta) and flavored with cinnamon. Much better than store bought cookies (which are very sugary and most of them have all purpose flour content), these are. For the coming valentine day, I just prepared these cinnamon flavored eggless cookies in heart shape and then slightly dipped the edges into melted chocolate. 




Since these are lightly sweetened, so for tea time these cookies are best compliment (just skip dipping in chocolate), also a great snack for kids. So just go ahead and make these crunchy and crispy, easy to make eggless heart shape cinnamon cookies dipped in chocolate to show your Valentine how much you love them.
