Cream together sugar and butter in a large bowl. Whisk in egg and vanilla, then whisk in melted dark chocolate until smooth. Stir in flour and baking powder until combined, then cover and refrigerate cookie dough for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Lightly flour the surface on which you will be rolling the dough. Do not flour the rolling pin or the top surface of the dough. Roll dough out to 1/4-inch thickness, then cut out cookies using a 2-inch heart-shaped cutter.

Break remaining dark and milk chocolate bars into small squares and gently press one square of chocolate into each cookie. Place cookies on cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Set aside to let cool, then serve.
