TIP OF THE DAY: Heart-Shaped Brownies

If you have a heart-shaped muffin pan (mini cake pan), it’s easy to turn out heart-shaped brownies. And if you don’t, no problem: Turn a pan of brownies into a Valentine treat with your heart-shaped cookie cutters.

1. BAKE your favorite brownie recipe and cut into heart shapes. If you are using a small, shallow cookie cutter, you may wish to divide the batter into two pans, so the cutter will get through these “shorter” brownies.

2. SERVE plain, like cookies, or with ice cream (try strawberry!) or whipped cream.

3. FREEZE all the leftover brownie scraps and use them for ice cream, vanilla yogurt, pudding, etc.

 
VARIATIONS

  • Mix chocolate chips—your choice of butterscotch, mini, peanut butter, white chips, etc.—into the brownie batter.
  • Sprinkle the top of the batter with sanding sugar, silver dragées or cinnamon candies (like Red Hots) before baking.
  • Avocado in your brownies? The California Avocado Commission chefs substituted heart-health avocado for half the butter in a conventional brownie recipe, and the brownies in the photo are gluten-free. Take a look.
