Since it is Valentine's Day weekend, I thought I would have a little fun doing something that says "I Love You" to my family. My husband was away for a few days for a work conference and I wanted to do something special for him when he got home.
Thursday night I ended up baking brownies because we had family over to visit but we didn't end up eating them. So I thought that it would be fun to use my little heart shaped cookie cutter to make brownie hearts. But why stop there? Why not make them even more chocolaty? Dangerous I know.
So over my kids nap time, I cut out heart shaped brownies.
I used left over Chocolate Almond Bark and some chocolate chips and 1/2 tablespoon of Crisco to melt my chocolate.
Want a fool proof way to melt chocolate? Take a pan of water several inches deep and warm it up. Add a glass bowl to sit on top with your chocolate and stir away. I turned down the heat once it was all melted. This worked great for me as it didn't burn or scorch!
Now just dip the brownie bits into the chocolate with a fork and tap your fork on the side of the bowl until excess chocolate drops off. I used the tip of a sharp knife to slide it off my fork on waxed paper.
Now for a pretty presentation....
Arrange hearts on 1 paper doily on a colored plate.
