A Little Heart on the Side




Ghirardelli Chocolate Classic Brownies






Life is uncertain, eat dessert first!

Recipe for these rich classic brownies here.










I've a reputation for serving heart 

shaped decorated cookies for Valentine's Day.





Last year I found these cute 

"heart on the side" cutters.

I now make cutout brownies instead.

With a Side of Heart Brownie!

  41. Hi Sarah, Just popping by. I happen to be out of chocolate, a very rare occurrence in my home. So even though I can not eat a brownie unless it's gluten free, your cut out looks yummy.
    Have a great week,

  46. Hi Sarah what sweet red and white plates you have! I made Ghiradelli brownies but I just used the mix from Costco! I've never see a cookie cutter like that it it sure is perfect for putting on the edge of a dish like you did here.

    Love how you added fresh berries and cream and styled it on the darling plates.
