Valentine’s Day Heart-Shaped Brownies

I’ve never really cared about Valentine’s Day one way or the other. I like getting chocolate and flowers, so I won’t complain, but I’ve never been a girl to freak out about Valentine’s Day goodies.

More importantly, Valentine’s Day is mine and Zack’s anniversary! That’s so much more important that Valentine’s Day! I think everyone should celebrate our anniversary instead 😉

These brownies were actually quite fun to make. I made a TON of them. Oops. They all got eaten, though 🙂

Valentine’s Day Heart-Shaped Brownies

– 1 lb unsalted butter

– 1 lb semi-sweet chocolate

– 6 oz unsweetened chocolate

– 7 large eggs

– 2 T vanilla extract

– 2 1/4 c granulated white sugar

– 1 c AP flour, divided

– 1 T baking powder

1 t salt

– 1 bag melting candies (any color)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 12x8x1″ pan. Line with foil that hangs over the edge for ease in getting them out.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Remove from heat and add chocolate, mixing until smooth. Cool slightly.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla and sugar. Stir the egg mixture into the slightly cooled chocolate mixture. Cool to room temperature.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt then add to batter. Pour into prepared baking pan and smooth top with rubber spatula.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean with a few crumbs attached. Do not overbake. Let cool completely, then cover tightly and chill. (to expedite this process, I stuck mine straight from oven to freezer). Chilled brownies are easier to cut.

Put the whole slab of brownies on a large cutting board and start cutting out hearts. To make more hearts, cut one row right side up and the next row upside down.

Melt desired coating in a bowl, in the microwave, and stir until smooth. Brush crumbs off the top of the brownies and hold onto the sides toward the bottom. Dunk the tops into the melted chocolate and place on waxed paper to dry.
