Valentines day, can be simple and easy. Normally, I bake from scratch. However, for these decadent dark chocolate brownies, I made Duncan Hines dark chocolate extra fudgy brownies. Yes, decadent dessert from a box.

I made this the easy way because everything doesn’t always have to made from scratch. What matters is we take the time to make something for the people we love.

Besides, I took the extra time to make these extra special, using a heart shape cookie cutter.

Instead of using my usual brownie pan I added the batter to a 9 x 13 pan. Instead of parchment paper I greased the bottom only of the pan to be sure the brownies would come out easily.

After cooling turn the pan over tom release the brownies and cut out the heart shape. Because brownies have a rough top, I cut these on the underside. This keeps them neater.

  2. These are almost too pretty to eat, Cindy! I love how rich and velvety they look and also how you added the dusting of sugar too. That was such a special touch! As always loving and pinning, CoCo

  3. These are so fun and perfect for Valentine’s Day! I think it would be cute to use the parts with the cutouts, too! Square brownies with heart shaped holes – have you ever done that?!

  4. What a fun way to make Valentine’s just really special! I’ve cut brownies before with a cookie cutter, but I have not dusted with a stencil and powdered sugar, I just love that look! And your carnations and table setting are just delightful! May you have a very special weekend!
