Sweethearts Conversation Heart Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

IMG_4703

When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of life being like a box of chocolates, your boyfriend getting in trouble for not booking that restaurant reservation sooner, a dozen red roses, meaningless store-bought cards, and those chalky sweetheart candies that come in pastel colours and are have cheeky quotes stamped onto each one.

I can’t say I’ve ever been a fan of conversation heart candies, I’ve always associated the flavour and texture to that of a TUMS antacid tablet so not really something I would enjoy eating mass quantities of. However I have always loved reading each individual one and chuckling at the bolder statements.  Enter these sugar cookies! They resemble the traditional sweethearts but taste so much better.

I actually had a lot of fun making these and picking out what I wanted to write on each one. I’m planning on bringing these in to the hospital tomorrow for my department so I kept my statements on the safe side but you can be as bold or creative as you like. Tell your Valentine how you really feel! 😉
