Legend has it that the original heart shaped treats were made from chocolate, but since they would melt, a Munich Master baker named Gustav Teschernich decided to bake the hearts out of gingerbread. Instead of the usual Christmas colors, he chose to decorate the hearts with poems. As time passed, the poems got shorter, and eventually became just short sayings or expressions of love.
