Triple Chocolate Valentine Brownies
PREP TIME: 45 minutes
MAKES: 12 (3-inch) hearts


  • 1 ¼ cups flour, unsifted divided
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup margarine or butter, cold
  • 1 (14-oz can) sweetened condensed milk, (not evaporated milk)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 (8-oz) milk chocolate bar, broken into chunks
  • ¾ cup nuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with heavy foil. Set aside. In a medium bowl, combine 1-cup flour and the sugar; cut in butter until it resembles crumbs. Press on the bottom of a baking pan. Bake 15 minutes. In a large bowl, beat condensed milk, cocoa, egg, remaining ¼ cup flour, vanilla and baking powder. Mix in chocolate chunks and nuts. Spread over prepared crust. Bake 20 minutes or until set. Cool. Use foil to lift out of pan. For hearts, cut with heart-shaped cookie cutter, or with knife, cut around waxed paper heart shape. Or you can cut into bars. Store tightly covered. Decorate bars with white icing or gels if desired.
