I know that when most people think of Valentine's Day that they think of it as a romantic holiday filled with roses and fancy dinners out with your significant other. But Valentine's Day has always been more of a family holiday to me. When I was growing up, my parents always made sure that my younger sister and I were included. We always received a card, a little red foil heart filled with chocolates, and other little goodies from them. And this is a tradition that I have continued on with my kiddos as well. In fact, I have already went out and bought all their Valentine's Day goodies for next Sunday. ;)
My youngest is now finally old enough to give her mama a helping hand in the kitchen, so this Valentine's Day we decided to whip up some special cookies for our family and her preschool classmates. At first we were thinking brownies, but then she suggested cookies. I happened to have a box of our favorite Pillsbury™ Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix in the pantry, so I thought why couldn't we have both? With just a few simple ingredient tweaks, you can turn your favorite Pillsbury™ boxed brownie mix into fudgy & chewy cookies or what I like to call brookies (Get it? Brownies + cookies = brookies). ;) And to make these brookies perfectly festive for the Valentine's Day holiday, we topped them with a simple frosting made from Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme® Frosting in Vanilla & crushed conversation hearts. I mean, what says Happy Valentine's Day better than pastel colored candy conversation hearts?
