My husband, Brian, is an excellent cook. The first time he made these elegant cookies was the night we go engaged. He took them to the restaurant and had the staff arrange them on a plate along with my ring! —Beth Kelley, Indianapolis, Indiana

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (2 each) equals 263 calories, 16 g fat (8 g saturated fat), 45 mg cholesterol, 131 mg sodium, 29 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt; add to creamed mixture. Stir in hazelnuts. Divide dough in half. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. Working with one portion of dough at a time, roll to 1/4-in. thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with a 2-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes (cookies will be soft). Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon shortening; stir until smooth. Repeat with vanilla chips and remaining shortening. Dip right side of half of the cookies in semisweet chocolate; dip the left side of remaining cookies in white chocolate. Overlap two hearts before the chocolate is set. Place on waxed paper until set. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.
