- 10 oz (or 1/2 bag) Melting Chocolate
- Food Coloring (gels are the best) or Food Tattoos
- Preheat oven to 340º (170oC) (DO NOT PREHEAT ABOVE 340º, this will weaken your brownies)
- Follow the directions on the back of the brownie box SUBSTITUTING canna-oil or melted canna-butter for the oil in the recipe
- Spray heart shaped molds lightly with cooking spray
- Spoon 1 heaping TBSP of batter into each mold (should fill about 2/3)
- Bake at 340º (170oC) for 25-30 Mins (add a few mins for higher altitudes)
- Brownies are done when you can stick a toothpick in the center and it comes out dry, without wet batter stuck to it.
- Let cool for at least 30 mins
- Place melting chocolate in a microwave safe glass bowl and microwave on high for :10 seconds
- Using a spatula, vigorously mix chocolate as it melts and gets smooth and creamy right before your very eyes!
- If chocolate is not totally melted after 2-3 mins of vigorous mixing. Microwave again for :10 seconds and repeat the process.
- Once chocolate is melted, smooth and creamy….
- Using a toothpick or small 2 prong fork to hold the brownie, carefully coat the brownie with the chocolate using a spoon or spatula.
- Shake off excess chocolate by taping your wrist a few times.
- Place smooth, chocolate covered brownie on parchment paper
- When all the brownies are coated, refrigerate for 30 Mins
- To add color swizzles, melt colored or white chocolate in the Microwave following steps 1-4
- Using a knife or thin decorating spatula, scoop up some colored chocolate and vigorously shake back and forth over brownies creating the “swizzled” look. It helps to tap your wrist as you go along. (you may want to practice a few times over the bowl before you attempt on the brownies).
- Refrigerate for another 30 Mins and Voíla!
