Toddler Recipes: Heart Shaped Brownies

Toddler Recipes: Heart Shaped Brownies


Yummy brownies with a cute shape! Decorate them with your child! Make a batch for that Valentine's Class Party


  • Box of Duncan Hines (or similar) chewy brownie mix

    • -Most require egg, water, and oil

  • White Frosting


  • Pan

  • Heart shaped cookie cutter 3.75" is size used in picture.

  • Food coloring

  • Small containers to mix food coloring and frosting

  • Spatula

  • Betty Crocker Easy Writer Food Decorators

  • Cutting Board of flat surface to press cookie cutters on


    1. Bake Brownies as directed.

    2. When cooled, cut into squares a little larger than your cookie cutter. The box I made used a 9 x 9 in pan so I cut the brownies into fourths and lifted each piece out onto a cutting board.

    3. Press cutters into brownie. Peel excess brownie away from the cutters and then lift the cutter for best results.

    4. Decorate with icing using spatula.

    5. Write your favorite conversation heart saying on each brownie.


  • Letting brownies cool before decorating with icing or it will melt and blur.

    Mini Heart Brownies

    small brownies

    Using a heart cutter about 2" across and colored frosting. Mixing the food coloring to get purple and orange was a great "lesson". A cutter any smaller and you lose the heart shape.

    Here is a great recipe if you wish to make your brownies from scratch.
