I wouldn't say I'm a hopeless romantic, but I sure am a sucker for any holiday that revolves around sweets. I have one small problem, I don't necessarily want to make said treats as much as I want to just eat them. My friend (and new fellow bay-area-er) Courtney from The Oven Mitt hooked us up with these insane red-velvet-chocolate-chunk-crazy-mind-explosion-brownies and stopped by last week so I could make them all pretty and we could stuff our faces.
I paired the brownies with some good ole fashioned milk, which I added a few drops of red food coloring to just because I can. And trust me, with these brownies you'll need milk.
Valentine's Day doesn't have to be extravagant or expensive. Sharing a simple special treat with your special ones and covering every visible surface with hearts is really all it takes.
