I am back into the treats again! And just in time for Valentine’s Day! Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than chocolate…….and diamonds. And, since I know for a fact that I won’t be getting diamonds any time soon, I will settle for chocolate!

Today’s recipe was inspired by my recipe for Brownie Cheesecake Peppermint Bars that got me on Good Morning America. Those bars have 3 layers: (1) a sugar cookie bottom (2) a brownie cheesecake center and (3) a white chocolate, peppermint and candy cane top. So, I basically made the second layer (without the peppermint), pressed it into a small heart shaped cookie cutter and then dipped them in chocolate candy coating.

Wow, are these addictive! And because they are so little you think that eating 9 isn’t all that bad! Ha! As if……I probably had that many plus a few other {experimental} treats that will be posted later this week :)!! As I was making these, my

This is a great activity for kids to make and it comes together pretty easily with few ingredients. I used a chocolate candy coating because I had some in my pantry, but feel free to use real chocolate. You could even buy the colored chocolate wafers and coat these babies in red, pink and white! How cute would those be?! {FYI- You can pick those up at Wal-mart :) }

Anyways, I just thought these were adorable and so tasty that I had to post this recipe first! Stay tuned for lots of yummy treats to come this week! Yay for Valentine’s Day!

Ingredients:
1 box brownie mix
eggs, water, oil {for the brownie mix}
8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature

chocolate candy coating or chocolate wafers {I ended up using about 20 oz. of candy coating}
sprinkles, for decoration

Directions:
Make brownies according to package directions. Let cool completely. Cut off any hard edges and crumble into a large bowl. Stir in cream cheese until combined–there should be no large chunks of cream cheese anywhere; mostly uniform in color. Using a 1-inch heart shaped cookie cutter, press brownie mixture into shape and then gently push completely through to form. Continue this process until all hearts are formed. Place in refrigerator until ready to coat in chocolate.

Over a double boiler or in the microwave, melt candy coating or chocolate. Place one heart shaped brownie into the chocolate and spoon more chocolate over top to coat completely. Remove with fork, tapping off any excess. Place on wax paper or cooling rack to drip. Top with sprinkles, nuts or any other desired toppings. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

    Wow! What a treat these would be on Valentine’s Day. I would have to give most of them away to others so I wouldn’t consume the lot on my own.

    This is a cross between a chewy brownie and a creamy chocolate candy. Really nice mix together. And there you go making something unique and fabulous from what you have in the kitchen…
