I saw these in an email and thought they'd be a perfect dessert for Valentine's day for my hubbby! And I was right! He said these were probably the best brownies I had ever made! He's a tough critic so that is high complements ; ) I pretty much followed the recipe, just deleting the red food coloring as both my son and I are allergic. I knew though that the addition of the "espreso" (or instant coffee like I used) would really just intensify the chocolate and not come across as a coffee flavor, which my husband is not so crazy about, and that was the case. I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut some out to serve on Valentines Day. Could pair with a simple raspberry or strawberry puree and whipped topping if you'd like. They were a huge hit and I will be making them again. As a matter of fact I'm having my 9-12 year old class make a version of this in tonight's dessert class!
