Please bear with the somewhat long question. I am looking for a recipe for a very soft chocolate cookie that I can make heart-shaped. Think extra soft whoopie pie cakey texture.
My little girl was in a bad sledding accident last week and is on soft foods. I would like to make a special Valentine dessert for her and her brother, but after a week of only being allowed to eat puddings, yogurt, ice cream etc things like chocolate mousse or pudding would NOT be special for her. She is able to eat muffins in small pieces, so I thought of whoopie pies.
BUT, to add to my requirements list: she has a vision impairment, so to make it truly special for her I'd like to make it heart-shaped so she can FEEL that the treat is heart-shaped.
However, my (pretty limited) experience making whoopie pies or other cakey cookies is that the don't hold any real shape other than round. Ordinarily I'd just do a sugar cookie or shortbread recipe with heart shaped cookie cutters, but those would bee too hard for her to eat.
Any ideas for me? (Oh, and in case it wasn't clear - chocolate is very important for this one!)
