Cream the butter in medium speed until smooth.
Add the sugar to the butter in a steady stream and beat until pale and fluffy.
Reduce speed to low and the flour mixture in three batches, alternating with two additions of the milk mixture, and beating until just combined. I totally forgot to take a picture of this step so on to the next step!!
In another bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Fold one-third of the egg whites into the batter to lighten. The gently fold the remaining whites until just combined.
|Looks like big blobs of marshmallows!! And FYI this isn't combined yet just wanted to show off the egg whites :)|
|Had help from my little valentine|
|Make sure it's taste tested too!!!|
Melt the chocolate chips using a double boiler and set aside to cool.
After the chocolate has had time to cool mix together the butter, sugar and salt on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy.
Reduce speed to low and add the melted/cooled chocolate, beating until combined.
|Looking good but not done yet|
After the cake has had time to cool cut out the heart shapes with a cookie cutter
|Make sure to setup a wire rack over a cookie sheet.|
Now add the hearts to the top.
With the extras I topped them with hearts and chocolate sprinkles.
