Heart Shaped Brownies with Fresh Raspberry Buttercream
Heart Shaped Brownies with Fresh Raspberry Buttercream are the perfect Valentine (or any time!) brownies. Fudgy, decadent brownies sandwich a creamy homemade buttercream flavored with real raspberries. I’m in love!
Every time I make these Heart Shaped Brownies with Fresh Raspberry Buttercream, our girls go crazy.
But really, what’s not to love?
Fudgy, decadent brownies sandwich a sweet and creamy homemade buttercream frosting flavored with real raspberries. It’s a match made in heaven, the perfect Valentine brownies!
If I had to choose just one dessert as my favorite, it would have to be a fudgy, chewy brownie.
And when you throw in some berries…well, I’m a goner.
I like to make these brownies because I know how much our daughters adore them. But it’s true. I like them, too!
The fresh raspberry buttercream tips these heart brownies over the top when it comes to special Valentine’s Day treats.
The frosting is bright and tangy, full of real raspberry flavor. And the vibrant pink color is compliments of the beautiful red raspberry alone. No artificial color is added.
Heart Shaped Brownies
I use cookie cutters to create the heart shaped brownies. With this recipe, I can make six larger brownie sandwiches, plus a number of smaller ones. Sometimes I choose to make a whole pan of smaller heart sandwiches, a nice size for a smaller piece of dessert.
After the brownies are cut out, I pipe the raspberry buttercream (with this piping tip) over one heart and gently press a second heart over the top.
Then I give the tops of the chocolate brownie hearts a little dusting of powdered sugar with a powdered sugar shaker. This not only adds pretty detail, but also helps to hide any imperfections made when cutting the brownies.
If you’re looking for a fun and super flavorful dessert for Valentine’s Day, give these brownies a try. They’re visually impressive, yet comforting like only a brownie knows how to be. Just ask the girls in this house. We’re in love.
