Summary:

You should be getting about 20 cookies, depending on your cookie cutter.

I am very happy to be in love with the best man on the planet – my husband. That is why I was inspired by him to make these Valentine Cookies. The combination of vanilla and coconut in them, made my whole house smell divine. I couldn’t wait for them to cool off to try them.

As you know, the place where I live is very limited in vegan options. That is actually  a good thing because it makes me be creative especially when it comes to decoration. The pink colour I had to make as I couldn’t find vegan version. Plus making your own decoration is very exciting! Don’t be confused by the ingredients. Trust me – you can’t taste the beets. LOL! So let’s make these cookies!

Decoration:

I used two colours – brown and pink. 

For the brown colour I’ve simply melted the dark chocolate and spread it on the cookie. 

For the pink colour I used 1 cup of icing sugar and 3 – 4 teaspoons of beetroot juice. You can adapt the colour to your preferences. 

I hope you like my Valentine Cookies idea. If you do, please, share it so that more people can enjoy these delicious cookies.
