Yay! It’s another edition of the Leftovers Club reveal! I was paired up with Dining with Dani, and I was excited to send her something Valentine’s Day related….I decided on brownies with conversation hearts on top.
If you can believe it, I had never made brownies from scratch before.
I was always baking with my mom, but mostly baking from the box– see picture above But baking brownies from scratch was so much easier and more delicious than anticipated (thanks to an awesome recipe from Bake Your Day/a guest post from Gimme Some Oven). I have had some TERRIBLE made from scratch brownies where I was wishing they were just made from a box! I hope that Dani enjoyed our “leftovers” with some conversation heart brownies!

- 1 1/2 sticks (aka 3/4 cup) unsalted butter
- 2 ounces dark chocolate (mine was 75%) broken into pieces
- 1/4 cup and 2 tbs cocoa powder
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- about 1/4 cup conversation hearts
- Difficulty: easy
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a medium baking pan with parchment paper, and set aside.
On the stove in a medium saucepan (over low heat), combine and met the butter and dark chocolate. Afterward, turn off the hear, and which in the cocoa. Once the cocoa is completely combined, whichk in the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and flour.
Pour contents of saucepan into baking pan, and sprinkle the top with sea salt. Drop conversation hearts on top (conversation side up). The conversation hearts will sink in a little while baking.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until the edges are set , expect the center to still be a little underdone. Let the brownies cool and set.
