Have you seen those cake pops that everyone seems to be making right now? They look a little too labor-intensive for me but I did find a cute brownie version for Valentine's Day here and I decided to try it.
Simply make a batch of brownies using your favorite recipe (I used a mix). After the brownies have cooled thoroughly, cut out the heart shapes using a cookie cutter. Melt a little bit of baking chocolate in the microwave. Place the ends of some sucker sticks into the melted chocolate and then insert the chocolate covered end into the heart shaped brownies. Place them on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper and put into the freezer for a few minutes. (This step ensures that the sucker sticks will stay put when you dip them - brilliant). Microwave some more baking chocolate for 30 second intervals until melted. Dip the suckers into the chocolate until well coated. Gently tap the suckers to remove excess chocolate and place back onto the waxed paper to set up. Add any decorative sprinkles that you would like before the chocolate hardens. I'm pretty sure your Valentines will be excited to receive such a decadent treat! Give them a try!
