Brownie Hearts with Raspberry Filling

We are definitely a family that loves sweet treats and baking so I regularly make brownies for the Mini Mes' lunch boxes or just as a dessert served warm with ice cream. With Valentine's Day just around the corner I thought I'd make a batch that are ideal to give as a gift or to share with loved ones - heart shaped with a delicious pink centre!




Ingredients (makes around 12 bites)
For the brownies
180g butter
100g chocolate (we used milk)
270g caster sugar
3 medium eggs
80g plain flour
40g cocoa

For the filling
55g butter
150g raspberries
300g icing sugar

Method
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
Line a dish 9" by 12" with foil and lightly coat with butter/oil
Melt the chocolate with the butter over a low heat and set to the set to cool slightly
Cream the butter for a minute in a bowl and then add in the sugar followed by the eggs
Pour in the melted chocolate mixture, sift in the flour and cocoa and then mix well
Pour into the lined tray and cook for 20-25 minutes until crisp on top but still slightly gooey inside
Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely
Using a heart shaped cutter, cut out pieces of the brownie and place them onto a plate, crisp side down so they don't stick

Heat the raspberries in a pan until they become a sauce then sieve to remove the seeds and allow to cool
Mix the butter with the icing sugar and mix in the raspberry sauce
Put the filling into a piping bag and add on top of half of the hearts
Add another heart on top to make the bites and pop in the fridge for an hour to set
Scoff!


*For an alternative, drizzle the raspberry sauce over the top of each heart*

  43. They look gorgeous. Is there a lot of wastage (leftovers for mum?) from you using a cutter? I have a silicone heart mould tray - I might try them in there & see if that works...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you position the cutter so the flat sides if the hearts line up there is less waste but generally they 'fall' into my mouth ;)
