“Mix Up a Moment” with Brownies for Your Valentine!
In my case, I made these delicious Dark Chocolate Strawberry Brownies for my ValentineS; my Clifford and my kids. I went on a little mini retreat to my parents house this weekend to get some work done sans kids and used a Pillsbury™ Brownie Mix and Frosting to mix these up as a special “thank you” treat for the family upon my return. But don’t you think they look decadent enough to give as a special Valentine gift, too?
Easy Dark Chocolate Strawberry Brownies – Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
Remember how I stocked up on Pillsbury™ Brownie Mixes and Frosting from Walmart before making our Football Brownie Cupcakes? I’m glad I did, because it meant I already had a Pillsbury™ Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix, Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme® Strawberry Frosting and Chocolate Fudge Frosting on hand for this special treat.
Other than the brownie mix and frosting, I only needed the oil, water and egg (according to the brownie mix box) and fresh strawberries!
I used a heart shaped cake pan to make these brownies Valentine themed, but you could make them square, too.
It only took a few minutes to whip up the brownie batter (according to the instructions on the brownie mix box).
But before pouring the batter in my heart shaped pan, I traced the heart shape on some parchment paper, then sprayed it with nonstick cooking spray and lined the bottom of the pan with the parchment paper so my big heart shaped brownie would flip out of the pan easier.
While my brownies baked in the oven, I cleaned and prepped the strawberries. I cut a “V” in the top of each and then cut them in half to make cute little heart shapes.
After the brownies were done, I flipped them out of the pan onto a plate and allowed them to cool to room temperature before icing with pretty pink Strawberry Frosting.
I added some strawberries to the top. Then I microwaved a small bowl of Chocolate Fudge Frosting for about 30 seconds to make it easy to drip all over the top.
Isn’t it beautiful?! It was delicious, too!
