Valentine Baking Trick

I wanted to give a friend some “Valentine’s chocolate” and have it be home made. But I did not want to invest in Valentine-specific cooking gadgets I would not use the rest of the year.  So here was my solution: heart shaped brownies.


To do this, I mixed and poured out the brownie batter as usual, then after it had settled out flat, I put heart shaped cookie cutters in it.


Here is what it looked like when it came out of the oven.


The larger heart got swallowed up because it is a less tall cookie cutter.  I think with a little practice I will have fun making all kinds of shapes, without having to buy special molds or learn new recipes.  Easy!
