Caramel topped Brownie Hearts for your Valentine
Last Valentine's Day, I made this very simple, but wonderful dessert for my husband. When I shared the photo on facebook, I had to laugh as the comments of others were praising me for my culinary efforts, when this was an EXTREMELY easy dish to prepare.
It begins with a BOXED brownie mix. (Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines are my choice).
*Prepare according to directions.
As soon as you take it out of the oven, poke holes over top with a fork. Drizzle choclate sauce and caramel sauce over top (Smucker's is a good brand....ROBERT ROTHSCHILD'S is even better, but pretty pricey).
Let stand at room temp.
Cut heart-shaped pieces with a cookie cutter.
Plate it, add vanilla ice cream then drizzle again with sauces for a nice presentation.
In the photo, you will see a chocolate-covered strawberry that I dipped, then added red sugar sprinkles and whipped cream.
Really- ANYONE can make this. EVERYONE will love it! Give it a try!
