If your special someone has a sweet tooth, do them a favor and make a batch of these ridiculously easy and moist frosted Valentine’s Day brownies.
Valentine’s Day is upon us! I hope you’ve got plans to show those you love how special they are. I know we do that every day of the year but it never hurts to do a little something extra, like make these Valentine’s Day frosted brownies on a day like this.
Valentine’s gestures don’t have to be a big production, cost an outlandish amount of money, or take weeks to plan in order to make our loved ones feel special. All it has to do is come from the heart. No matter how busy you are, there is always time to do something special for Valentine’s Day.
To help you out a bit in case you need it, today I’m going to show you a yummy dessert that you can throw together in just minutes: delicious Valentine’s Day brownies! All you need is a box of brownie mix, a tub of red frosting, and some chocolate chips to sprinkle on top. This is the easiest (and most delicious) treat to bake for Valentine’s Day. Fudgy, sweet, and so moist, what more could you want?
- Package of brownie mix that makes a 9×13 pan
- Tub of pink frosting
- Vanilla and milk chocolate chips
You’ll also need whatever ingredients the brownie mix calls for, which is usually a little bit of vegetable oil, water, and eggs.
Mix up your brownie mix according to package directions.
Grease a 9×13 baking dish.
Spread the brownie batter into the greased 9×13 baking dish.
Then sprinkle about half of the chocolate chips over it.
Bake the Valentine’s Day brownies according to package directions.
Then allow them to cool completely.
Now it’s time to make them frosted brownies with your tub of frosting.
Sprinkle the remaining chips over the top of the frosting.
Then it’s time to cut and serve your delicious brownies to your loved ones.
Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day!
Your Valentine’s Day brownies will last in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze them for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.
- Walmart often has limited edition red chocolate chips on sale around Valentine’s Day, so feel free to sprinkle them on top instead of (or as well as) the other chocolate chips.
- Instead of chocolate chips, sprinkle the brownie batter with M&Ms instead. Bonus points if they’re festive red and pink M&Ms.
- You can easily adapt this frosted brownie recipe to suit other occasions too. For example, use simple chocolate frosting year-round, sprinkles for a birthday celebration, or red and green M&Ms around the holidays.
- You can easily find a heart-shaped cookie cutter on Amazon if you want to cut your baked brownies into hearts. I’d do that before frosting.
