Brownies for Valentine's Day? Why Not?

Although there's a lot of merit to looking for cake ideas for Valentine's Day -- heck, I wrote a whole article on some tasty Valentine cupcakes just because I thought they were pretty.

However, Valentine brownies make a lot of sense, too, especially if you're baking for a chocolate lover. The best brownie recipes that I've found really capitalize this catnip for the taste buds.

And some of them, like the heart brownies shown at the top of the screen actually make really easy Valentine's desserts even if they don't look like it.

V-Day dessert recipes also make really excellent Valentine's Day gifts for loved ones, so be thinking of ways that you can put one or more of these yummy ideas into a gift tin or basket. Just add a homemade Valentine's card, and you're set.

They're some of the best brownie recipes I've ever seen. I'm sure you'll enjoy these V-Day desserts as much as I have.
