How-To Turn Regular Ol' Brownies Into Conversation Hearts!

/ Thursday, February 7, 2013

Valentine's Day-mania is almost over, I promise! I do get carried away but but I'll level with you: I often get so wrapped up in sharing sugar-sweet ideas with my lovely blog friends that I leave my own Valentine's Day baking and planning to the last minute—and inevitably end up scrambling to pull something together (sorry boyfriend). It happens every year!

I'm making an effort to square away my Valentine's Day surprises now but I wanted to share a last-minute idea with you, incase you're like me and need a "little something" back-up plan that you can make in a pinch. Here's how you do it...

1. Buy store-bought brownies or make brownies from a mix, it takes 30 to 40 minutes. 
(I love Betty Crocker—we actually just tested their Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie Mix at work and it was insanely delicious. I was so surprised!)

2. Cut brownies into heart using a cookie cutter.

3. Cover the brownies with a thin layer of store-bought frosting to make a smooth surface.

4. Roll out 1 small piece colored fondant. Drape over brownie, smooth with your hands and cut away the excess (save and re-roll, if desired).

5. Put some store-bought frosting in a resealable plastic bag, snip 1 corner and pipe a sweet-sexy-saucy saying onto your heart.
That's it, you're done! Personalized conversation hearts in minutes. What do you think!?
