What a fun recipe this is and so perfect and personal for that special someone on any holiday really. I can totally see these being made into eggs for Easter with pastel-colored frosting, little pumpkins for Halloween, ornaments or trees for Christmas, and how about customizing them to look like mini birthday cute would that be? I can't wait to try this recipe...Oh, my gosh, shamrocks for St Patricks Day would be cute too!

These look so awesome. I don't love candy but I love baked goods! I am definitely going to make some of these. The frosting looks so yummy. They don't have to be made for valentines day, you can make them with any special message on them such as for a teacher at school. I never thought of doing something like this which is personalized. Thanks for this idea!

1000000x YES! Brownies are already a fave. Add frosting to them, and I'm in heaven. Kind of want to make these for my goddaughter's Valentine's Day party at school now. I'm sure they'd be a hit!

These brownies were so good! I think these would be amazing for Valentine's Day or even as an anniversary dessert.

These were SO delicious and cute! Loved the brownie recipe!

These were so yummy! Brownies are my weakness and these weren't too overly sweet. It would pair perfectly with a scoop of ice cream, too!

By the time I got to these, there were only crumbs left. Tasty crumbs.

Cute idea! And, they taste MUCH better than the actual conversation hearts that are sold around Valentine's Day. Delicious!

OMG these tasted great, but were also SO cute!

Loved them. Dense, chocolately, and fun! They're the perfect finisher when you're having company. I'd recommend serving them right after you enjoy a pizza!

These were so yummy and I love how they were styled like conversation hearts. So adorable and sweet!

WOW! These were delicious brownies. Bonus points for being incredibly cute.

I loved that these brownies were chocolatey but not too chocolatey. They were fudgy and rich without being overbearing or too sweet. Delicious!

Delicious! And super soft, too. I often don't like brownies because they get all hard around the edges, but these were perfection.

I loved these! The brownies were soft and moist and rich, and the brightly colored frosting was so cute and festive. Perfect Valentine's Day treat!
