We get a little crazy for Valentines Day at our house, oh who am I kidding we are just plain crazy! Every year I make the kids Valentines treats. Usually it's cakes, but this year I decided to change it up. This year I made brownie cookies on a stick. I have my fingers crossed that the kids won't be disappointed.
(look at our Valentines tradition)
I made the brownie cookie recipe that is on the Golden Crisco box. It's a tried and true recipe at our house. The problem was forming them into a heart. I thought that I was so smart when I formed them into cookie cutters... that was short lived. When that first batch cooked, there was no sign of the heart shape.
The second batch came out better. I decided to do my usual cookie ball, and then I cut them in the middle, and separated them a little. When they were cooked they looked much more heart shaped.
After I had shaped my cookies into heart shapes, I put in a wooden skewer in the bottom and baked them for 11 minutes.
After the cookies were baked and cooled I melted white chocolate chips and drizzled it on the cooled cookies. I then used the white chocolate to stick on a little conversation heart.
I'm hoping that the kids all like them, I guess we'll see.
