Be my Valentine brownie


Just a quick note to wish all my readers Happy Valentine with these delicious brownies. They are the new hot thing this year so I baked a nice brownie and used a round cookie cutter to cut out small round brownies. Placed them in paper cups and piped a nice chocolate swirl with two pink hearts on top.

Happy Caking!

    Thank you !

    Andrea: I used the Quilting embooser from Patchwork Cutters. Roll out the fondant, emboss it and cut out the hearts. The hearts are sugarpaste with a little tylo added. They did not get soft from sitting in the frosting. I had one leftover and they next day it still looked fine.

  3. Andrea Kopp says

    One more question…
    The sugarpaste (?) hearts can be in contact with the frosting without melting ?
    Or you just put them right before serving ?
    thanks again

    Brownies are always “in” at my house!!! I love the idea of using a cookie cutter to make shapes though, I’m definitely going to do that from now on! Then that means, I get to eat all the scraps! Woo Hoo!!!

  9. Maria DiMauro says

    Thanks Louise. It is always a pleasure receiving your e-mails. I also enjoyed the Joys of Baking site you mentioned.

    Happy Valentines Day and keep the emails coming.

    Looks great. I was kind of thinking that brownies were “in” when I saw some special brownie boxes/packaging at a craft store.

  12. says

    How sweet! I think that is a lovely way to present brownies. I really like the pattern imprinted on the fondant hearts.
    I used your blog as the go too place when I made my Valentines cookies, thanks again for all your useful tips!
