  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted sweet cream butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 ⅓ cups brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs

  • 4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups Hershey Cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoon instant espresso grounds
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

White Chocolate Frosting

  • 1 cup unsalted sweet cream butter softened
  • 12 ounces white chocolate melted and cooled
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Valentine’s Day sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 12x19 cookie sheet with pam spray. Cover the pan with parchment paper.
  • Using a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, coffee, and vanilla until combined and fluffy
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the cocoa powder, espresso grounds, flour, cornstarch, and baking powder
  • Gradually beat in the dry ingredients into the wet
  • Spread the brownie batter onto the cookie sheet
  • Bake in the oven for 22-26 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean
  • Allow to cool completely
  • Using the Heart cookie cutter, cut out 12 brownie hearts and place onto a wire rack.

White Chocolate Frosting

  • Using a standing mixer, beat the butter and vanilla until light in color Gradually beat in the melted white chocolate
  • Beat in the powdered sugar until combined
  • Scoop the frosting into the disposable piping bag and cut the tip off Pipe an outline around the edge of the brownie hearts
  • Fill in the center with the frosting and smooth with an angled spatula Sprinkle some valentine's Day sprinkles on top

Notes

  • The baking spray helps keep the parchment paper in place. 
  • Also, make sure to line your pan with a good amount of overhang. This will help you more easily pull out the brownies once they are done baking and cooled.
  • You don't have to use instant coffee grounds for this recipe or the prepared coffee if you are not a fan of the flavor but it does add a nice richness to this recipe.
  • If the frosting seems too thick add a tablespoon of milk at a time until it reaches the consistency you desire.
  • Make sure that your brownies are completely cooled before you frost them.
 
Store the brownies in an airtight container for up five days. These brownies are also freezer-friendly if you don't eat them all right away.
