Chocolate heart cookies with red pepper

Red (pink) granular pepper - dried berries of the Schinus molle plant - "Peruvian pepper tree".

Slightly spicy and sweetish, milder than black pepper and more aromatic.

Cookies with red pepper in a chocolate coating, in addition in the shape of hearts, can fit well into the Valentine's atmosphere :-)


200g butter

150g cake flour

150g wholemeal flour

100g sugar

2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar

30g cocoa

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

package of red peppercorns - 20g

1 egg

Chocolate topping

100g dark chocolate

25g of butter

1 tablespoon of milk


red peppercorns


We crush 15 pieces of red peppercorns in a mortar.

On the pastry board, mix the cake flour with krupczatka. Add cocoa, baking powder, sugar, vanilla sugar, salt and crushed red pepper.

Add the butter in pieces to the dry ingredients and combine by chopping with a knife. For ease, butter can be mixed with dry ingredients in a blender to the so-called "wet sand".

Add the egg and knead the dough. When ready, wrap in cling film and put in the fridge for at least an hour.

Roll out the chilled dough to a thickness of about 3mm. Use the cookie cutters to cut out the cookies.

Bake for about 10 minutes at 180°C, being careful as the cookies can burn very quickly.


Break the chocolate into cubes, dissolve in a water bath (in a bowl over boiling water), while stirring constantly, slowly add the butter and milk.

Dip the cookies halfway into the glaze and decorate with a grain of red pepper.
