Valentine's Day Brownies

As much as it pains to me to say, my days of macaron making have been put on pause for the foreseeable future... but just because I don’t have three hours to put towards baking doesn’t mean that I have to sacrifice fun holiday treats – it just means I have to go about them a bit differently!

Here’s a quick way to dress up a box of brownies and turn them into a sweet Valentine’s Day treat. Simple, festive, and tasty!



All you need is a box of brownie mix (and the ingredients required according to the box) and powdered sugar.



Bake the brownies according to the boxed mix instructions, and let fully cool. 
I used a round, springform pan, but any shape (or baking dish) will do!



After the brownies are fully cooled, cut a heart shape out of a piece of paper. Place the heart centered over the brownies and sprinkle with powdered sugar.



Carefully remove the paper, leaving the powdered sugar heart. And that’s all you need to do to turn normal brownies into a holiday treat!



Looking for other simple holiday desserts? How cute are these finds from Pinterest?!
