Valentine’s Day Ideas 2 & 3: Heart shaped candy coated brownies and pretzels!

This post may contain affiliate sales links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Man, do I have your back or what?! Two more cute Valentine’s Day ideas for your honey that don’t take a whole lot of time or effort! Just in time and they are pretty delicious, too! So, for these heart shaped brownies, I baked a whole pan and used a cookie cutter to make the heart shapes. Then I melted some white and semi sweet chocolate chips, smothered the tops and topped them off with colored chocolate candies! These are so cute, especially when you pair two of them together! And, imagine the possibilities! You could leave them plain, choose different candies or drizzle different colored chocolates over them all. Pack them all in a cute red box and you are set to have a sweet Valentine’s Day!

Now this next idea is more for the kids in your life! This dessert is so easy for them to make and clean up is a breeze! I invited my niece and nephew over to help me make these chocolate covered pretzels and it kept them quiet and entertained for at least half an hour! Its a lot of fun dipping the pretzels, but even more fun to decorate them. And if your fingers happen to ‘slip’ and get covered in chocolate, so be it! Thats just a risk I’m willing to take.
If you’re feeling like making a cute little present, pop the dried pretzels into cellophane bags and tie them with some cute ribbon! I thought they were pretty adorable.
