When a box of chocolates just won't cut it, you can make your own chocolaty Valentine's Day treat with a little something extra inside. A heart-shaped brownie treasure box can be filled with chocolate kisses, candy or ice cream and wrapped with a personalized Valentine's message for your main squeeze.
Skip the traditional card, and give your honey an edible valentine instead. Who could resist breaking into a heart-shaped brownie treasure box to find out what sweet surprise is hiding inside? These boxes are bursting with love and will bring a smile to your loved one's lips.
Yields 5 – 8 completed brownie treasure boxes, depending on size of mold
Bake the brownies in a 9 x 13-inch pan, according to the directions on the box. While they are still warm, cut the brownie hearts with a cookie cutter.
Place each brownie inside a heart-shaped acrylic container.
Press them down inside the molds with a spoon or small melon baller. Allow them to cool completely.
