Ever heard the term, "brownies are love?" Well, we made these decadent treats with love in mind. Our Blushing Frosted Brownies are heart-shaped gestures of affection to show your Valentine just how much they mean to you. Topped with a smooth, raspberry buttercream, this is the perfect dessert after your romantic candlelit dinner.

What You'll Need

  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk

What to Do

To Make Brownies:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a 9-x 13 pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. 
  2. In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine 1 stick butter and chocolate. Heat until chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time and whisk until through combined. Stir in flour and salt; mix well.
  4. Pour batter into baking pan. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool completely. 
  5. Lift brownies from pan and place on cutting board; remove foil. Using a 1-1/2 inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, press firmly into brownies. Gently press brownie out of cookie cutter. Repeat until only brownie scraps are left.

To Make Frosting:

  1. In a medium bowl, beat 1/2 stick of butter and jam until smooth. Slowly add confectioners’ sugar and milk, beating until creamy. Place frosting into pastry bag and decorate the brownies as seen in the photo.

Fun Fact!
  • Did you know that one theory about the origin of Valentine's Day is that it was originally to celebrate St. Valentine or Valentinus (who may have actually been more than one person), because he married soldiers to their sweethearts during wartime, when it had been forbidden by the Emperor? All is fair in love and war.
