Variations to try

  • Heart-shaped Cookie Cutters. Cut out heart shape pieces of brownie before serving.
  • Sprinkles. Try topping with festive Valentine’s Day sprinkles.
  • Box of brownie mix. Instead of homemade brownies, use a box mix and add the festive mix-ins to the chocolate mixture.
  • Frosting. You can frost the brownies with your favorite icing. I love Strawberry Buttercream Frosting because it is pink!
  • Toppings. Try adding crushed oreos, nuts or candy to the top.

Step by step instructions

Pro Tips

  • Don’t overmix the batter. Mix together until the ingredients are just combined.
  • Allow to cool before slicing. Give the brownies time to cool completely before cutting. This will ensure nice clean slices.
  • Try other holidays. Swap the M&M’s for other holidays or use regular M&M’s to enjoy any day of the week.
  • Prepare the pan. Line the pan with parchment paper to make it easy to remove the brownies and cut them.
