Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
For Icing
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • drop of gel food coloring of your choice
Special Equipment Needed:
  • food safe popsicle sticks
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a walled cookie sheet with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oil, sugar, and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients then stir into the first bowl.
  4. Beat in eggs.
  5. Pour into prepared baking sheet, and bake for 10-15 minutes or until poked toothpick comes out clean. *These are thinner than regular brownies, so they take less time to cook.
  6. When fully cooked, set aside to cool completely (around 30 minutes).
  7. Once cooled, take a cookie cutter and cut out heart shapes, using the whole sheet of brownies. There will be some waste but you could turn those into brownie pops or something.
  8. While the brownies are cooling, make your icing: combine 2 cups powdered sugar with 2-3 tablespoons of milk and a drop of gel food coloring of your choice. Whisk until smooth. Texture should be thick and not runny - you may need to add more powdered sugar or more milk to get desired texture.
  9. Once icing is mixed together, scoop into ziplock bag and cut small corner off the tip.
  10. With icing bag, squeeze out while drawing a heart shape close to the edges of your brownie. Wait a minute and fill in the heart.
  11. Add sprinkles, insert popsicle sticks, and serve!
