Valentine Brownies Recipe

In Austin, Texas, Susan Ohlendorf found a fun way to show her loved ones how much she cares. She prepares brownies from a mix, cuts a heart shape out of each one and fills the center with homemade frosting. "Our grandson loves to eat the little heart-shaped brownies that are left over," she notes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. YIELD:15 servings


  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa


  • 1. Prepare and bake brownie mix according to package directions for fudge-like brownies. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, cream the butter, confectioners' sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Place in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag; set aside.
  • 3. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Dust with cocoa; set aside. Cut brownies into 15 rectangles. Using a 1-1/2-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out a heart from the center of each brownie. Reserve cutout centers for another use. Place brownies on prepared baking sheet. Pipe frosting into centers of brownies. Yield: 15 brownies.

"I baked my brownies on a jelly roll pan so they were very thin. I then cut out designs from half of them & frosted the other half with jam. I then topped those with the brownies that had cutouts, & filled with cream cheese frosting. Thanks for the fun idea! Kids would love to help make these."

"I made these for the ladies that I work with and they were very happy! I had to thin the frosting out with a little milk and I used powdered sugar instead of cocoa to dust the bottom and sides of the brownies. Thanks for the cute idea!"
