Poverty, But Easy and Delicious Brownie Heart Cakes

So, we all know that today was Valentines Day. I am a bit late, but I hope you all had a fabulous day with your loved ones. Me, I spent it with my two beautiful babies, my hubby had to work :(

I decided to make some special treats for my kids and hubs, and so I went to work in that kitchen of mine. Actually I am pretty happy with myself, because I did not have little heart cake pans, so I improvised. I molded some silver foil around my heart shaped cookie cutter and made the little cake holders that way! Not too shabby, huh? We call them Poverty, But Easy and Delicious Brownie Heart Cakes!

My Silver foil heart shaped (maybe a bit poverty??) cake pans…

How To Make:

You will need a box of brownie mix and the ingredients on that box. A can of chocolate frosting, red hot candies, sugared nuts (that sounds bad…), and heath bits (or whatever topping you so desire…).

Make brownie mix

Pour into already made little silver foil heart tins

put into over at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes

Let cool

pop them out of the little heart tins

and decorate!

Easy, delicious and EVERYONE will love them!!

Before the oven….

After the oven (and out of their silver foil shell)…

Decorating and Enjoying!

And, one ESPECIALLY for hubby..

What did you do for Valentines Day? :)

    I spent valentine’s day with my cat. Yup, I put whip cream on his wet food as a special surprise.

  18. This is such a cute idea! I never thought of making mini-cake pans from foil and cookie cutters, but this would be a fantastic way to bake more on a college budget. They make such cute and appropriate serving sizes, too.
