250g plain flour
80g rice flour
20g icing sugar
85g caster sugar or coconut sugar
210g butter, chopped into cubes
1/4 cup plain flour, extra for dusting


For the Filling:
1 cup Mayver’s Smooth Peanut Butter or Mayver’s Extra Crunchy Peanut Butter
40g cup coconut oil, melted


For the Topping:
250g dark chocolate, melted
Freeze dried raspberries (optional)
Mayver’s Smooth Peanut Butter for drizzling (optional)



  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celsius, fan force, and line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flours, sugars & salt and whisk to combine dry ingredients.
  3. Add in the cubed butter and using your fingertips, press together until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Pour dough onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
  5. Roll dough out until it is 1.5cm thick, and use a heart shaped cutter to cut out cookies, from the outside of the dough inward in order to maximise space.
  6. Place cookies on prepared trays and bake for 40 minutes, swapping trays in the oven half way through.
  7. Remove cookies from the oven when ready or golden on top.
  8. Whilst cookies are cooling, prepare your filling by beating or whisking together the peanut butter and coconut oil. Ensure ingredients are well combined.
  9. Place filling in the fridge for 1 hour.
  10. Once filling is ready and cookies are cooled, use a spoon or piping bag to place filling on one love heart cookie. Top/ close sandwich with a second cookie.
  11. Once you have made all your cookie sandwiches, place in the refrigerator for 1 hour to allow filling to further set.
  12. Once the cookies are ready to remove from the fridge, place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high in 30 second increments until chocolate has melted.
  13. Dip one side of the cookie sandwich into the melted chocolate and place back onto the lined tray. Repeat the process with all cookies and place in the fridge for a final time in order to allow the chocolate to set. NOTE: if you are topping with freeze dried fruit, do so before you place chocolate dipped cookies in the fridge.
  14. Once set, serve and enjoy!
