Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays for cooking every year because I usually teach a Kid’s Valentine Cooking Class and share my recipes with children. This year I have a great class scheduled along with a few television appearances lined up in Birmingham and Nashville preparing Valentine treats. These Valentine Brownies are just one of the recipes I will be making for the kids as well as television. This easy brownie recipe was shared to me by the editors of the Tables of Content Book from the Junior League of Birmingham (one of my must-have cookbooks). These are so easy, and you make them all in one saucepan. Use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter and decorate with your favorite icing. They are almost too simple to be so divine.
Since I have been getting many requests for a quick brownie recipes, I thought I would give you a semi-homemade idea: Almond-Butter Topped Brownies. Start with your favorite brownie recipe or brownie mix (I used Duncan Hines) and top with almond butter, nuts and chocolate. These also work great with your favorite peanut butter or Nutella. These make a quick party dessert, bake sale item or Halloween treat.
