Next week is one of the most popular holidays of the year… Valentine’s Day! And I wanted to create something super special to celebrate the day! Red Velvet Valentine Brownie Bites is what I made for you!
Two years ago for Valentine’s Day, I made chocolate cupcakes filled with cream and topped with a chocolate ganache and buttercream. Last year I made (I was about to have a baby and was nesting!) Dark Chocolate Raspberry Hug Cookies, Sweetheart Sugar Cookie Bars, Baked Sour Cream Donuts, and Frosted Sugar Cookies! This year needed to be different.
Red Velvet. Yes… but I’ve done Red Velvet cupcakes and brownies before, so I knew I had to mix things up a bit with this recipe. For the brownie, I adapted a recipe from How Sweet It Is and baked them in a larger pan so they’d be a bit thinner. I cut them into heart shapes, and piped white chocolate cream cheese frosting between two hearts to create a sandwich.
These are DEFINITELY a winner! The chocolate is subtle in the brownie but the white chocolate is explosive in the frosting… put the two together and you’ve got YUM!
