Cupid Is At It Again

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. I have fond memories of Valentine's Day starting with heart shaped boxes filled with See's Candies, boxed Valentine's Day cards exchanged in Elementary School and Valentine Candy Grams in Junior High!

Edible Valentines! Could be a breakfast treat or different dessert!

Chocolate Heart Shaped Tortillas
makes one dozen

3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup Semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 cup warm water
1/4 corn oil

For topping and to make hearts extra special for your Valentine!

Cinnamon Sugar ready to sprinkle or Powdered sugar
Fresh whipped cream or cool whip
extra mini chocolate chips
Hershey syrup to drizzle
Cut Strawberries in their own juice with a bit of sugar

Mix first five ingredients in a bowl. Add vanilla and oil, stir. Add the water very slowly and mix. Dough should be smooth and pliable. If dough is dry add a little more water and knead. Form dough into golf ball size rounds. Rub each ball with oil and cover with a paper towel. Allow dough balls to sit for 15-20 minutes. Roll with a rolling pin until thin and rounded. Trim the top of tortilla to make the top of heart shape and then trim the bottom sides to form the pointed part of the heart. Smooth trimmed ends with water and your finger tips. Lightly brown on a hot griddle until bubbly and then flip and brown the other side.

Top with goodies and enjoy! Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
