My daughter was out of school on Friday, today and now tomorrow also because the school parking lots were not cleared. No one knows where to put all this snow. And today we had freezing rain on top of it. Sorry for the rant, but I have been stuck in this house for too long. Hopefully, it will be safe to go back to work tomorrow. If not, I may have to bake again. We only have four more of these cookies left.
You can leave them plain or decorate them with some frosting and sprinkles. I used some Betty Crocker Decorating Icing. It worked out well. You just can't stack them, because the frosting doesn't harden. But it sure is easy and quick to use.
Plain or decorated, they taste just as good. So make some for your sweetheart or treat yourself to some.

Keywords: bake dessert snack mocha cappuccino spread cookie American
Ingredients (36 cookies)
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup Jif Mocha Cappuccino spread
- 1 cup M&M's
- 1 can Betty Crocker Decorating Icing
InstructionsFor the cookies
Preheat oven to 375ºF
Blend together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
In a stand mixer, beat together butter and shortening until creamy.
Add sugar and vanilla and beat medium speed until well blended.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, mixing well in between.
Add flour mixture, and beat on low until all incorporated.
By hand, mix in the Mocha Cappuccino spread just until you get a marble effect.
Then mix in M&M's by hand as not to break them.
Then drop by cookie scoop full into the heart cavities of you greased baking pan or on a greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
If using the heart shaped baking pan, flatten out the dough by hand so it evenly fills out the heart cavities.
Bake at 375ºF for 7 minutes, then remove from oven and wait 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
Allow the cookies to cool completely before adding any toppings. (Or just eat one now, no one will notice.)For the topping
Attached one of the enclosed nozzles to the Decorating Icing can. I used the star tip. Decorate as desired, then add sprinkles if you want.
