Ingredients

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
unsweetened
¾ cup margarine
(1 1/2 sticks)
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup nuts
chopped
2 ⅔ cups strawberries
halved
*
8 ounces whipped topping, prepared
or whipped cream for the ultimate treat

Directions

Heat oven to 350℉ (180℃) (325℉ (160℃) if you are using a glass or pyrex baking dish).

Line a 13 inch by 9 inch baking pan with foil, extending over edges to form handles.

Spray with non-stick cooking spray or grease.

Heat chocolate and butter or margarine in a small saucepan over low heat. Alternatively place in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at full power.

Stir frequently until chocolate is completely melted.

In a large bowl mix together the sugar and chocolate mixture until well blended.

Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well.

Add the flour and nuts and blend thoroughly.

Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Be careful not to overbake! You want the outside to be a bit crisp and retain a fudge-like interior.

Cool in the pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes for easier cutting.

Lift brownies out of pan with foil handles.

Invert onto back of pan. Carefully remove foil.

Carefully flip over onto a cutting board.

Cut into heart shapes with a heart shaped cookie cutter.

Place half of the brownies on individual dessert plates.

Arrange strawberries over the brownie. Top with whipped cream or whipped topping.

Top with another brownie creating a sandwich.

Garnish with a strawberry half.

Serve immediately.

Makes 10 heart shaped brownies (depending on the size of your heart-shaped cookie cutter or about 5 to 6 servings.

This is a great brownie recipe - very simple.
I wanted "valentine" brownies and if you follow the instructions, you'll be able to bake and cut them easily.
What I like ist that they are not overly sweet or gooey, but have a great chocolate taste and are very moist with a crispy top.
I cut out bite-sized hearts and iced them with a ganache and powder-sugard some. Served them on a platter as finger food desserts with a glass of port....perfect!
I'll make again, just as brownies. Even thought a dark chocolate lover, these are not dark - nor milk chocolate. They are just really good brownies!
Yummy! Thanks.

Definitely a group of pretty pictures, love the pink color, matches very well with the chocolate heart cakes and strawberries, and also fit for the Valentine's Day. Looking forward more nice pictures.
