Surprise your loved ones on Valentine’s Day with these yummy and easy to make red and white decorated heart shaped brownie bites!
When it comes to Valentine’s Day treats, chocolate is a must! And nothing satisfies my chocolate craving quite like brownies.
I gave my regular brownies a Valentine’s Day makeover by cutting them into heart shapes and adding frosting and sprinkles.
How to Make Heart Shaped Brownie Bites with Frosting and Sprinkles
I’m a bit embarrassed to call this a “recipe”, as I used boxed brownie mix! On the other hand, it doesn’t get any easier than this to make a treat that looks and tastes great 🙂
Make the brownie batter as directed on the box.
Pour the batter into a 13×9″ baking dish lined with parchment paper. I strongly recommend using parchment paper, as it keeps the brownies from sticking to the pan and it makes clean-up a snap! Bake as directed on the box.
Remove from the oven and let cool completely in the pan. Lift the brownies out of the pan with the parchment paper and place on a cutting board. I also used this parchment paper technique with my Coconut Apricot Bars.
Now for the fun part…cutting out the brownie hearts. Believe it or not, my cookie cutter is from my daughter’s play dough set LOL! However, it works great, and it’s just the right size.
I was able to get 20 hearts out of one box of brownie mix. If you need more hearts, make two sheets of brownies. You’ll have leftover brownie scraps for snacking 😉
Ice the brownie hearts with frosting. I used my favorite cream cheese frosting.
Add sprinkles to the frosting. Put the brownie bites (one at a time) on a plate. Shake some sprinkles onto the brownie, then turn the brownie upside down and dab sprinkles from the plate onto the frosting. Continue until all of the brownie bites have sprinkles. Done!
These brownies now seem “gourmet” with their heart shape and frosting. They taste great, too. I love the crunch from the sprinkles!
I just love red and white for Valentine’s Day! I chose the same color combination for my Dollar Tree Valentine’s DIY Puzzle Piece Heart Craft. You can use whatever colors you’d like. Pastels would be pretty!
I styled my Valentine Brownie Bites on a red and white tablecloth with tea and vintage creamware china. Enjoy!
