Conversation hearts are the iconic candy of Valentine's Day, but candies themselves could use a taste boost. What if you could send sweet nothings and enjoy some chewy chocolate, too? These brownie hearts are easy and charming for an after school treat or a romantic finale to a dinner in.
Pull out your heart-shaped cookie cutter, a box of brownie mix (or make from scratch if you're ready for that), and bamboo skewers. These arrow skewers are my favorite! Use a permanent marker to change their natural tone to something more heartastic for Valentine's.
Bake your brownies as usual and let them cool completely. Press cookie cutter into the brownies and remove onto another plate.
Finally, put on your cupid wings, and push the skewers through the heart, like arrows, and present to the one you love.
Looking forward to sharing another Valentine treat with you tomorrow! It's become a favorite at our house.
P.S. If you're looking for an easy way for your child to bring in classroom Valentines, turn one of her or his shirts into a fun, no sew bag!
