So we all know if it had been my choice I would have been baking up some Valentine's Day cupcakes but since Valentine's is all about the one you love and he loves brownies then that's what he got.
I have had this King Arthur recipe bookmarked for months in my 'brownies' folder of bookmarked recipes. It is described as being super fudgy and super moist which is always a good combo in my book so I thought it was about time it made it's debut. I made a few slight alterations and the end result was delicious and more than enough to impress the one I love!
I had bought a bag of 'Valentines M&M's' just because there was this huge aisle of 'Valentine's candy' at the supermarket and we never get stuff like that in England! so I bought a bag of the red, white and pinks just because I could and decided they would be an appropriate topping for the brownies!
I also threw some white chocolate chunks into the brownies to beef up the chocolate-ness of it all! So here is my adapted recipe:
Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies for Valentines:
