I’m pleased with the taste and texture of the brownies; nice and fudge-y, which is what I look for in a brownie. Not a fan of cake-like brownies. If I wanted a chocolate cake, I would make a chocolate cake instead.
What’s even better is that this is a one-bowl recipe~
When I made this the second time, I decided to decorate the brownies to make ‘love brownies’. Who wouldn’t love the cute effort?
So to start off, melt your butter and chocolate
Mix in your sugar, then add eggs and vanilla extract.
Then stir in cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, salt
Stir in chocolate chips
After the brownies have cooled, remove from the pan and cut into 16 pieces
This part is optional. Take out a heart-shaped cookie cutter and cut out the brownies. I made some big ones for someone who got engaged, small ones for a few friends, and the squares were for someone’s birthday
Melt some white chocolate (not a lot) and pour it into a ziploc bag. Snip off the end and pipe on the white chocolate in a zig-zag manner
Now for the cupid arrows. Fold a piece of pink paper in half, and draw the shape below. Cut the shape out and glue one side of it. I snipped off part of a satay stick, and its length depends on how big your brownies are.
Insert it into your brownies like this
