All you need for this easy and delicious treat is a pan of brownies, a heart-shaped cookie cutter, ice cream and some festive sprinkles, and you will have a show-stopping Valentine's Day dessert. Make it special by serving it up on some fun Valentine's plates from your local dollar store.
A word on the brownies: Use a fudgey recipe or mix that will stand up to being made into a sandwich, i.e., one that's not too cakey. I used the Ghirardelli mix from Costco and it worked fantastically.
And if you're really not feeling the sandwich, just serve your heart-shaped brownie with a scoop of ice cream and top with chocolate syrup and sprinkles.
