Heart-Shaped Fudge Brownies! Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

February 4th, 2011 by Jennifer Leigh

I love being a Wilton Mom Ambassador. I know I say it over and over again, but it’s true. I love it. I never knew just how much fun baking could be! After reading Wilton’s new Pops! book, I was inspired to try brownie pops. They got rave reviews at my house, and I really wanted to start doing more with brownies. This brought me to my latest fun project, Heart-Shaped Fudge Brownies!

Of course you’ll first need to bake your brownies. I wanted mine really fudgy so I made two boxes in a 9×12 baker and took them out the moment the cake tester came out clean.

Meet the Push N Pop Brownie & Treat Cutter. This thing is so cool. I want to bake brownies every day just to play with it. It worked great and I bet it would work just as well with cake too!

It was SO easy to use! Once it’s pushed down, pull it out. The brownie will be in the treat cutter still.

Here you can see all my brownies once they were cut. They looked so cute!

Next I took the Chocolate Fudge Icing and threw it in the microwave for 30 seconds on 50% power.

Now make sure you remove every piece of the foil that is on it. This itty-bitty piece made a spark in my microwave.

Now don’t they look even better?

I found these sprinkles at Walmart and just couldn’t resist! I knew they’d be perfect for some of my Valentine’s Day recipes I have planned. You can also purchase both the Micro Hearts Sprinkles and the Valentine Nonpareils Sprinkles online too!

Now this icing is a bit like using frosting directly out of the can too. It dries quickly. I recommend sprinkling each one after icing or the icing will dry up too fast and the sprinkles will just sit on top. At this point half of them almost immediately disappeared. My family found them incredibly good!

I did manage to get a few away from them to pack up for family. I took one of the Square Nesting Trays and placed two of the Tissue Squares on the bottom. I twirled them to make them more decorative.

The Square Nesting Trays fit perfectly inside the Red Metallic Valentine Treat Boxes.

Don’t they look adorable? The Red Metallic Valentine Treat Boxes were definitely the perfect touch for presenting them. My mother-in-law thought it was darling and treated it like the best present ever.

    Jennifer, thanks a million for this idea! I made these instead of cupcakes for my daughter’s first grade class and they were a huge hit!

    I used the comfort grip heart cookie cutter placed them in heart printed cellophane bags.

    They were a huge hit.
