The day of affection is quick approaching, and I’m right here to provide you inspiration on one other bake for good ol’ valentines day. Whether or not you wish to make this for a beloved one, your self, or pals.. it’s a cutie. 

A thick chocolate brownie is what all of us want on valentines day, particularly when it’s do-it-yourself and completely delicious. I needed to make a cute coronary heart formed one, however in fact you would simply make any of my brownie recipes as a present! 

Valentines day

Valentines day for me is a little bit of a blah day, as a result of I have a tendency to search out issues are very overestimated, and I simply wish to do one thing good at residence. I at all times suppose making a dinner at residence, or making a do-it-yourself present is a stunning concept for Valentines, and this recipe is certainly a kind of. 

In fact, it’s possible you’ll wish to make a cute coronary heart formed bake in your pals, a member of the family or something actually… so don’t fear, this recipe can be utilized for any event. Galentine’s day, anniversaries, and so on. 

The brownie

  • Chocolate – for the bottom of a brownie combine, I at all times use darkish chocolate. I like 70%+ in cocoa content material as a result of it’s extra constant within the baking and creates a greater base for the combination. 
  • Butter – you should utilize both baking unfold or precise butter for a brownie combination
  • Eggs – as it is a smaller recipe than my regular brownies, I exploit two medium eggs in complete. Two massive must also be high-quality. 
  • Sugar – caster sugar, mild brown smooth sugar, golden caster sugar and so on… all of them work properly. 
  • Flour – plain flour is the very best for this, you wish to keep away from utilizing any elevating agent in any other case you’ll get an odd cake texture. 
  • Cocoa powder – I exploit a robust cocoa powder for the very best flavour


When it got here to the flavour of this brownie, I went with what I had within the cabinet and fridge, but additionally what I knew my boyfriend want to eat. For this brownie, I made a decision to swirl by way of some barely melted down Nutella because it’s simpler to swirl. You may in fact use biscoff unfold, a special chocolate unfold, and even depart this bit out. 

I additionally added in some white chocolate chips. I like how the white chocolate chips look within the brownie, but additionally once more, the flavour. You may swap these to take advantage of chocolate, darkish chocolate, M&Ms and so on. Something you mainly fancy. You may even swap among the chocolate chips, or the Nutella, for chopped nuts. 

The tin

For this recipe, I exploit a 22.5cm coronary heart formed cake tin. I needed this recipe to be as cutesy as potential, and utilizing a coronary heart formed tin is 100% the way in which to do that. Nonetheless, in the event you don’t have a coronary heart formed tin, you should utilize a 7″ sq. tin for this recipe. 

The amount distinction between this recipe and my regular brownie recipe is about half, and the odd form of the center tin works out at about half of the 9″ tin as properly. Therefor, half of a 9″ sq. tin is  a 7″ sq. tin. 

When baking this stunning recipe, you wish to bake them till there’s a slight wobble in the course of the tin. Then, I allow them to cool totally within the tin after which ‘set’ the brownies within the fridge in a single day for an excellent fudgy texture to the brownie.  

Ornament concepts

When it got here to adorning this brownie, I went comparatively easy as a result of I actually didn’t know what to decide on! In my large valentines cookie recipe I exploit a pink buttercream so I didn’t wish to try this once more. I form of needed to essentially wham the chocolate into this one. 

I used a whipped darkish chocolate ganache which is simply unimaginable luxurious, and is really easy to do. I let the melted ganache combination cool and begin to set a bit, then I whip it on an excellent excessive velocity and it creates a luxuriously clean whipped ganache. 

Add this to a piping bag along with your favorite piping tip, and pipe away. Enhance with some raspberries for the crimson color, and a few valentines sprinkles, and you’ve got the very best valentines brownie recipe going.
