Cover the dough and refrigerate for one hour or until easy to handle.

On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness using a rolling pin. Using the heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut 25 cookies.

Place cookies in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.

Next place cookies on a greased baking sheet and bake 10 minutes until light golden. Let cool.

After that melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Once chocolate has melted, remove it from the heat. Taking one cookie at a time, dip one end of each cookie in the melted chocolate and place it on a parchment lined baking sheet. Once chocolate has set, transfer cookies to cooling rack to dry thoroughly.

Serve and enjoy.
