More About This Recipe
This Valentine's Day, don't just tell that special someone you love 'em; show them – with these cute brownie hearts!Bake some rich fudgy brownies, shaped like hearts and stuffed with pink raspberry cheesecakes, and I'm bettin' you'll be gettin' a whole lot of lovin' this Valentine's Day. I know I did.
Chocolate is said to have the power to make one feel love intensely, and these deep dark chocolate Betty Crocker™ brownies are sure to do the trick. Whether you serve these to your spouse, partner or even your kids, they will probably shower you with affection!
Each little dessert packs a big punch. The intense chocolate flavor is balanced with the creamy cheesecake center. I flavored my cheesecakes using raspberry puree, which not only added a wonderful fruity note to the dessert, but also made them pink. To really punch of the color, I added a few drops of Betty Crocker™ Neon Pink Gel Food Coloring.
The recipe will make 24 tiny heart-shaped cheesecakes. One Betty Crocker™ Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownie mix will make 12 brownies, so you'll either have half of the cheesecakes left over to simply enjoy, or you can use two mixes to make 24 of these desserts.
If you don’t have the heart molds, you can bake the cheesecake in an 8-inch square pan. Cool it, freeze it, and then cut out hearts using a small cookie cutter.
Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to a month.
Bring to room temperature before serving and watch your loved ones swoon over this adorable dessert!
