A Little Brownie Pick-Me-Up

Now you would think in my house that naturally everyone loves my baking. It's like a 24-7 bakery over here on Silvana Crescent right? Think again. Wrong. My family is actually in fact, SICK of it. Sick of the cupcakes, the cookies, the cakes, the frosting (oh don't get me started on the hatred towards buttercream!) I sometimes get fearful of pulling out my icing sugar and mixer because it sends them all running.



With that being said, when my mom asked me the other night if I could make her some brownies I was floored. I was being ASKED to make something. Boy was I excited. Now this was at 8:30 at night so from-scratch brownies weren't in the works but a boxed mix from the cupboard seemed to be calling my name. And from there, voila!


Brownie Hearts

A heart-shaped cookie cutter is the secret to making these adorable little treats. I baked the brownies in a 9 inch silver cake pan for about 30 minutes and the results were PERFECT. A soft center with the perfectly hard outside shell. I cut out a whole bunch and eventually mom gave in, dad came and had some and Josh woke from his teenage slumber to see what the commotion was about too. And they say they hate my baking...

Love your idea with the brownies. Will definitely try that sometime! I LOVE chocolate and strawberries. One of my fave things to make is tuxedo strawberries. So fun!

PS...love the new design! Looks perfect! I need a new one myself. I just don't know if I want to fork over the money when I'm not even making any money on the blog itself. Can I justify it? What do you think?! Who did you use and how much did it cost? You can email me with this info if you want

I linked here from Love, Actually, and this is a darling idea! My favorite cookie cutter is the Wedding Cake Cookie Cutter because I'm looking ahead to a bridal shower and think those would be perfect.

MamaJoss said...

OMG - Love you NEW design in here!! You NEED a MATCHING link/button....the other one was to hold you over LOL :) I'll get on that and then you can use either. Haven't walked down to our mailbox in about a week, so I'll have to check today...we're in a Townhouse community with a huge mailbox/storage unit that I never get to...ugh.

As for the brownies...you are AWESOME...what a treat...and love the cutters too...of course the Princess one.
