Heart Shaped Brownies

Elliot works with Mr Carinae. Elliot made me happy. To show my appreciation, I decided to bake. My baking is better than my cooking.

I ate a cookie when I was in Carson City, Nevada, 2 weekends ago. I thought it was a plain old chocolate chip. Au contraire, mon frère! This cookie startled me – it was stuffed with a freakin’ brownie! Or was it a chocolate cookie? At any rate, I was bound and determined to replicate it.

I used my Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe, but this time I used mini chocolate chips instead of regular sized ones.

I made brownies, let them cool and then used a cute little 1 inch diameter heart shaped cookie cutter. Pretty little heart shaped brownies!

Look! Dough ready to wrap up the heart shaped brownie.

This is how I do it – I based my stuffed cookie structure on a Juicy Lucy. Hey – I was trying to think of a way to do it and then describe it.

Stuffed and ready to be baked.

Right out of the oven. I let it cool for 15 minutes. I couldn’t wait for it to cool completely because I was *dying* of curiosity. I really wanted to see the innards of this bad baby. Yea, it’s a little thick and it looks a bit lumpy, but I have an idea of how I want to do this later on.

Here it is, in all its naked glory…I called this a diabetic’s nightmare – I’m sure blood sugar levels will rocket if you eat even a fourth of this. Is it worth it? It might be for some. I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but…it’s a little too sweet for me. If you have a sweet tooth, this bad ass is for you. I hope your pancreas goes into overdrive.

PS I will be adding my brownie recipe because I also made brownies today as well.
