Today I have a yummy Valentine’s Day treat for you today.
I made these over the weekend to share with our friends that were coming over to watch the Super Bowl and here are so good.
They are pretty easy to make too!
Here’s how to make your own.
-Brownie Mix or your favorite brownie recipe
-Candy Melts (2 bags)
-Sprinkles and or Sanding Sugar
Bake your brownies according to the directions.
I didn’t want super thick brownies so I used the largest baking dish that I had to make sure they were on the thinner side.
Using a small heart shaped cookie cutter, cut hearts our of the brownies.
Try to keep the hearts as close as possible so you can get as many hearts as possible.
Place the hearts on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper and place in the freezer for at least 15 mins but more if possible to firm up the brownies so they won’t fall apart in the chocolate.
Melt the candy melts according to the directions until totally smooth and then pull the frozen brownies back out of the freezer.
Drop a brownie heart into the chocolate.
Using a fork, spoon, spatula, whatever, cover the heart completely.
Using two forks, pull the heart our of the chocolate.
Let the extra chocolate drip off the heart and alternate forks to ensure that the chocolate drips off.
Place back onto the wax paper to set.
Now I have a second option for you in case you don’t have chocolate sitting around but you do have a can of frosting and it is also utterly delicious!!
I learned this trick from my blogging friend Courtney from Sweet C’s Designs and it is sooooo awesome!
Place your brownie hearts on a cooling rack with wax paper UNDER the cooling rack.
Then in the microwave heat up the frosting for two 15 second intervals stirring in between.
You want the frosting to be runny but not too runny so if it is too thin, let it stand for about a minute to thicken back up.
Now it is time to frost the brownies.
Guys, this part can be difficult if you don’t use frosting a lot.
Are you ready?
Pick up the can of frosting, and POUR, yes pour, it onto the brownie hearts.
Let the frosting drip over the edge and if there are areas that don’t get covered, then just go back and pour more near the edge where it needs to be covered.
Told you, SOOO difficult! 😉
Let the brownies sit for a few minutes and let the extra frosting drip off onto the wax paper.
Top with sprinkles or sugar or whatever and let the frosting firm up for a while.
You could also place them back in the freezer to help firm up the frosting.
These are seriously so good!
They taste just like a Little Debbie cake! YUM!!
I hope you make one of these versions for yourself!
They are so fun and easy!
