These turned out pretty despite the vague directions and misleading name...I used 12 ounces of white chocolate to the 2 tbsps of crisco, this ratio seemed to work well. I also added a few drops of cherry flavoring to the red food coloring. The chocolate set pretty quickly, but the darker and thicker (and prettier) swirls of red color took much longer to dry. I did not attempt to cut out hearts, but instead broke the candy up into slabs. I like that this was easy, fairly quick and looked like Valentines candy.

Such a genius idea! I used 12 oz white chocolate chips and 3 tablespoons shortening. Also added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Instead of using toothpick, I cut the cookies with a heart-shaped cookie cutter. They turned out so lovely. Thanks for this amazing candy recipe!

I gave these five stars for two reasons... One was the easy of recipe. Two was great taste. To me those two ingredients makes up for a little clean up here and there. I did make these with regular semi sweet chocolate as well as white chocolate. I did go with Rohanlori's use of 2tbs as well. It did work out very well. These can be made for any season or just because. Thank you Cherry for listing a simple and delicious recipe!
