Sweetheart Sandwich Cookie Recipe

When I was brainstorming about Valentine's Day blog posts, my first thought was a cake that looks like an actual human heart. 

But that, my friends, is beyond my skill level. I'll try to get a degree in anatomy real quick before next V-day so I won't disappoint you again. 

Instead, I put together some very cute, very yummy and pretty easy Sweetheart Sandwich Cookies. They're heart-shaped sugar cookies with a divine chocolate filling finished with sprinkles for extra cuteness.
