There are oodles of recipe variations you can follow to make Valentine Brownies. But this is one of my favorites!
It’s easy to make, especially when you use a mix. Stir up a simple icing topping while the brownies are in the oven, spread it on top when the brownies are done, and add some sprinkles.
You can stop there and simply cut the brownies into traditional squares.
But here’s a little secret: cut the brownies with a heart cookie cutter … and you’ll win the hearts of your Valentines.

Special Baking Tips for Valentine Brownies
Use a deep-sided cookie cutter, preferably with sharp edges, in order to cut through thick brownies. Shallow plastic cookie cutters don’t work as well.
You can use different sized heart cookie cutters to make a variety of heart brownies.
