I have been making these brownies for years. The brownies are always a hit where ever I go: to a party, the office, or just at home. Not only are they delicious, they have the cutest design; perfect for Valentine's (or Galentine's) Day!
This recipe is the best for lazy winter days (& lazy bakers haha), because the recipe is essentially one bowl. Say good bye to the usual 5-bowl, sticky, chocolatey mess you're used to cleaning up and say 'hello' to free time lounging and munching on these delicious brownies.
Fun fact, the MF made me that heart cookie cutter. I was in a rush, and didn't have a heart cookie cutter. When I made my way to the usual stores, they all somehow sold out of theirs or had ridiculously huge ones. MF decided to make it into a hands on project! It's not store bought, but it's sincerely one of my favorite items in the world. I use it constantly, and it means so much to me, because MF made it for me so I could spread the love (& chocolate)!

2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon table salt
