Sweet Hearts in a Snap!

I was thumbing through the February issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine and came upon THIS simple cookie idea from Matthew Mead. You simply put a thin layer of some type of icing(I used royal icing which I had on hand for my current sugar cookies) on a chocolate wafer cookie(which I had leftover in the pantry, and that's why I made these) in the shape of a heart, and then cover with sanding sugar. That's it! I love the contrast of the bright colors against the dark chocolate cookie:)
So sweet and simple! These could easily be bagged and tied with a pretty ribbon. Tasty too!
