These valentines cookies have a lovely marsh mellow centre sandwiched between two shortbread biscuits and dipped into chocolate….lovely. The marsh mellow only takes a few seconds to melt in the microwave but be on watch since it happens very fast. When the shape of the marsh mellow deforms then it is ready to take out. Also trimming the marsh mellow to the shape of the biscuits can be a sticky affair, have some warm water nearby to rinse those fingers or you will end up being entangle in marsh mellow string!
