Brownie Hearts Recipe

With Valentine’s day coming up this Friday, the kids and I decided to make a little treat to enjoy. Because what’s better then soft, chocolaty brownies? Soft, chocolaty heart shaped brownies.

After seeing these on Pinterest, I thought it would be fun to create our own little heart shaped goodness, especially as Emma and Brendan both love using cookie cutters whenever they can.

We used our favourite brownie recipe from All Recipes, but decided to leave off the icing so they would be less messy for the kids to cut into hearts and dusted them with icing sugar afterwards instead.

Brownie Hearts

1 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons icing sugar


In a pot on the stove, melt butter over low heat. Remove from heat and add in sugar, eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together cocoa powder, flour, salt and baking powder. Combine wet and dry ingredients together and pour into a buttered, 9″ x 11″ baking dish. Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until you can poke the center with a toothpick and it comes out clean. Let the brownies cool and then carefully remove them from the pan in one large piece. Set on a cutting board and use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out your brownies. Dust brownie hearts with icing sugar.

    Hi! I recently came across your blog! You have such good ideas! Love those brownie hearts! And, I am so happy to have seen your tutorial on making a material covered wreath. Your wreath idea is exactly the one I have been looking for! Love the folds of cloth on it! I have so much jewelry from my mom and aunt and I wanted to make a jewelry wreath and I think your idea is perfect for it. Also, your suggestions on your gallery wall are very helpful! Thank you!
