Valentine’s Day Brownies

My daughter and I got a little creative this past weekend making Valentine’s Day brownies. Chocolate is a huge hit in my house, as you can imagine, so ooey-gooey brownies were on the top of our baking list.

You’ll Need:

  • Brownie Mix – We used King Arthur’s Gluten Free Brownie Mix for the first time and I have to say they were so tasty! I highly recommend it.
  • Frosting – Chocolate and Vanilla
  • Pink food coloring paste
  • Large and small heart cookie cutters
  • Candies – Heart-shaped York Peppermint Patty, Valentine’s Day M&M’s
  • Gum paste
  • Sprinkles, sprinkles and more sprinkles

1. We baked the brownies in a large baking dish (9 x 12) since I wanted them to be flatter so we could make a sandwich. I cut down the baking time by about 5 minutes since these brownies were thinner than indicated on the package. Let them cool.

2. Use the large Heart cookie cutter to cut your brownie shapes. Cut some small hearts out of the remaining brownie pan left-overs or cut a small heart out of the center of one of your larger heart brownies.

3. Add pink food coloring to the vanilla frosting. We wanted hot pink so we added quite a bit of pink food coloring paste to get the intensity we wanted.

4. Now decorate. You can frost the brownies and decorate with sprinkles, make shapes with candies, or put two brownies together to make a sandwich or whoopie pie effect. My daughter created the white bear and white heart out of gum paste. While she had fun making shapes with the gum paste, no one really liked it enough to eat it.

My favorite was the mouse. Which do you like best?

No matter how you decide to decorate your brownies, they’ll all taste great.

  7. [...] There are so many fun things you can do with a heart-shaped cookie cutter! For my daughter’s lunch, I cut her sandwich into a heart shape to surprise her when she opens her lunch box. Last night we took pound cake, cut heart shapes out of the slices, drizzled chocolate over it and added a dollop of whip cream. Easy and yummy! You can also spread a thick layer of whipped cream out on a cookie sheet, freeze it and then cut heart shapes out while frozen. Drop that creamy heart in a mug of hot chocolate for some fun! Finally, here are directions to make super-fun, heart-shaped brownies. [...]
