After all, what better way is there to treat your loved ones on Valentine’s than with a scrumptious dessert? Plus, if you’re too busy writing valentines to bake brownies from scratch, you can totally use store-bought mix — just remember to pipe on a personalized message in frosting for an extra sweet touch your S.O. will love.
