Valentine Day Treats

This recipe came to me via email this week from General Mills.

Go online and sign up to get them. Not quite sure who contributes to their site these days but it is one of the better ones and is always loaded with fun, new ideas.

This is a cute treat to make for your wee and small valentines today.

One box Betty Crocker® Original Supreme brownie mix (with chocolate syrup pouch) or Betty Crocker® fudge brownie mix

Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box

One container (1 lb) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting

Betty Crocker® Decorating Decors multicolored candy sprinkles or colored sugar

Heat oven to 350°F. Line bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with foil. Grease foil on bottom only of pan with shortening or cooking spray. Make brownie mix as directed on box, using water, oil and eggs. Bake as directed for 13x9-inch pan. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Using foil to lift, remove brownie from pan; remove foil. With deep 2 1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut 14 brownies. Place brownie hearts on a cooling rack or waxed paper.

In microwavable bowl, microwave frosting uncovered on High 10 to 30 seconds. Stir; frosting will be thick and spoonable. DO NOT BOIL. Carefully spoon melted frosting over brownies to glaze, allowing excess to drip down sides. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles before frosting sets.

Bon Appetit!
