Easy Heart Brownies

Can we all agree that brownies are delicious? These fun heart brownies are delicious, fun, and perfect for Valentine’s Day…or any day for that matter!

I’m crazy and won’t go out of my way for chocolate…unless it’s a brownie. There’s something about the mixture of gooey chocolate and that sweet chewy crunch that I love.

In my mind brownies are like bacon: you really can’t go wrong when making them, and pretty much everyone will be drawn to the kitchen when that sweet scent wafts through the air.

Point in case:

My daughter was supposed to be taking a nap while these were baking, but when she came down the stairs she exclaimed, “Mama! I was trying to go to sleep, but then I smelled brownies, so I had to come down and see if there really were brownies, and there ARE BROWNIES! So, Mama, can I have a brownie now?”

Bless her little heart.

How to Make Heart Brownies

All it takes to make these fun heart brownies are some little rolled up balls of foil—a little bigger than the size of a marble—some fun cupcake liners, your favorite box of brownie mix, and a Brownie Pan.

Here’s my tip for you: fill the batter into the cupcake liners first, and then add the foil ball in the corner of the square well, it helps make the shape of a heart a little more pronounced, and you can manipulate how you want the heart to look.

You can totally make this with cake mix, too—red velvet would be perfect.

While you’re picking up your brownie mix, grab some pink frosting and sprinkles, or make plans to dust some powdered sugar—top those hearts for a little extra love.

Brownie Pan for the Win

For the record, if you’re rolling your eyes about needing a whole special pan to make these, hear me out. You can use a Brownie Pan to make waaaaay more than just brownies in it.

Check out my Banana Blueberry Bread, Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Cakes, Apple Spice Cake, and my Pinterest board with more ideas.

I also love making (and freezing for quick lunches): mini lasagnas, mini meatloaf, and little pizzas in it—my kids eat just about anything I make in the Brownie Pan, and I call that winning.
