These are made with a marshmallow filling (see previous post for recipe).
I decided to make these heart shaped at the last minute, so I didn't use a heart shaped template to pipe them - I just piped a circle, then dragged the piping nozzle downwards to make one side of the heart, then repeated on the other side. Be careful not to make the hearts tilt to one side (unless you pipe half of them as mirror images to tilt to the other side) otherwise you won't be able to sandwich them together!
Give it a try and see how you go - it's a lot easier than you think!
