We’re turning the quintessential Valentine’s Day candy into a must-make dessert with this Giant Conversation Heart Cookie Cake. Enjoy!
A giant conversation heart cookie cake?! That doesn’t taste
like off-brand, expired chalk with a hint of cherry cold medicine?! That’s
actually made of cookie dough and filled with festive candy?!
Yes, that’s what we’re doing today.
Although, you don’t need to do it all today. Or even in one
day. I didn’t. I made the cookies and frosting one day, decorated it the next,
delivered it to my mom the day after.
But, I highly, highly recommend doing it for
Valentine’s Day. For someone you love. Maybe for your mom? Because if she’s even
half as obsessed with cookie cakes as Melba is, she’ll go bonkers for this!
Peppermint Mocha Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches are a delicious make-ahead frozen dessert that boast all the wonderful flavors of winter! Buttery, chocolatey shortbread cookies sandwiching creamy peppermint ice cream – what could be better?!
If I’m being honest, these Peppermint Mocha Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches were not the original plan. There was going to be a pavlova situation happening, but it didn’t…uh…y’know…happen.
That’s ok! We adjust and change and frankly, make the thing
that feels right and lights us up instead of what we feel we should do
or what the original plan was.
I’m really softening with age.
These shortbread cookies though? They’re not soft. They’re
crisp and buttery and crumbly and perfect for sandwiching layers of creamy peppermint
ice cream. After they’re dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint
candies, of course!
