I’m calling these guys VDay Explosion Brownies because that’s the first thing I thought as I was making them. You may have even caught a glimpse of them on my Instagram last week. Sorry if I caused any mid-morning drooling! I love brownies for any holiday, or any day for that matter. I especially love making them even more now that I’m an adult. I can go all the way around the pan & eat the crust, because no one’s there to stop me! Just livin’ it up over with my pan of brownies y’all. I’m sure someone can relate…anyone?
Anyways, dressing things up holiday style is one of my major callings in life (if you have yet to notice). Brownies & Valentine’s Day are no exception. Really, no limitations exist on my holidaying. Just ask my wonderful husband.
I started with my all-time/favorite/go-to brownie mix in a box & prepared it almost according to package directions. I switched out the oil for melted butter & OMG life changed. Never going back to that basic oil stuff again. Amen. Feel free to do the same or use your totally amazing homemade version.
Pour the batter into your brownie pan. Then top it with all the fun Valentine’s Day goodies you have! Conversation hearts are a must here- I used 2 different sizes, as well as M&M’s & lovey dovey sprinkles. Now, bake according to the directions. You may want to check halfway through & add an other dash of M&M’s &/or sprinkles, as they tend to sink a bit more than the conversation hearts.
**PS- I totally use the as seen on tv- perfect brownies every time pan & I probs couldn’t live without it. I got it for Christmas when I was in highschool & it is seriously up there on my best gifts of all time list. Only downside is the effort it takes to clean.
Don’t the sayings on these guys just crack you up? ‘On Fleek’ is totally my new favorite! What does that even mean?
Indulge in these brownies immediately.
They are great with a glass of milk or a few scoops of good old BlueBell country vanilla, which is what I’m literally eating them with the right now. Don’t judge! I’ll go to my cardio dance party class in the morning.
