After you cut out the hearts, roll the brownie leftovers into bite-size morsels. Once coated with cocoa or sugar, they resemble truffles. You'll get about 44 bites.

Cook's Notes

If you don't have a heart-shaped cutter, you can cut the brownies into squares or other shapes. If you like, add 1 cup chopped nuts to the batter, or decorate the top of each brownie with a whole pecan or walnut.

    The only good thing about the brownies were the shape. The brownies had such a deep dark chocolate taste there were not sweet at all. I will not try these brownies again. Shame on you Martha!

    Such a creative and frugal idea! Especially using the leftover brownie bits to prepare truffles. For those of you whose brownies crumbled, you have to let brownies cool to just the right temperature before cutting them. Yet, please note, I haven't tried out this recipe yet :-) I might have to eat my words (and the crumbs) later.

    Total disaster. Tasted great, but completely cracked so you couldn't cut hearts out of it. Unfortunate experiment the night before a kindergarten party, but I find most of MS baking recipes are either fantastic or a disaster.

    A perfectly fine brownie recipe, but WHY it tells you to put a piece of wax paper in the bottom, I have no idea. TERRIBLE! Never put wax paper in the oven! It will get totally baked into your brownies and either ruin them, or you'll waste time trying to pick it off as it rips. Use parchment or aluminum instead.

    This is my go to brownie recipe. It's easy and always a hit. I don't usually do the cookie cutter part, however.

    The recipe I use everytime for brownies, excellent-moist and flavorable. I often use different shaped cookie-cutters depending on season-holiday.
