For me, the holidays are always about food. I mean that in the most sincere way. The holidays give me an excuse to make excessive amounts of treats and devour them with only a few second-glances my way. Perfect, no? Colorblocking is a popular trend and has been for quite some time. Why not bring that trend in the kitchen and incorporate it into food with these colorblocked valentine brownies?? Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to do it. Let’s talk about these colorblocked brownies, m’kay?
To make your own colorblocked valentine brownies you’ll need:
- pan of brownies in assorted colors (recipe at bottom of this post)
- heart-shaped cookie cutter
Once your brownies are baked and cooled, lay them out on a flat surface and carefully push the cookie cutter down into the brownies in different places to get different color combos. And that’s it. Easy, right?
Lay them on some cute valentine-y napkins with a big ole’ glass o’ milk and enjoy them on your own. Errr, I mean share them with a loved one.
Colorblocked Valentine Brownies
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon of milk
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- red food coloring
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, mix together cake mix, egg, milk, and brown sugar. It will be sticky! Divide the batter equally among three bowls and add different amounts of food coloring to two of the batters. Pour all three batters into a greased 9 x 13 pan and spread so batters are connected, but not mixed. Bake for 25-30 minutes until done. Let cool and start cutting! https://www.mabvi.org/wp-content/languages/new/motrin.html
Do you have any special treats that you make for v-day? Or do you buy? If you buy, I’m not judging. I can never get enough Reese’s hearts. 🙂

Oh my goodness, these are so adorable! Just pinned it so I’ll remember for next valentine’s day (or, uh, next week, more likely)!
Bahahaha, Melissa. That is the story of my life. I make treats on a regular basis! We are so healthy over here….
These are adorable! I wish I had seen this in time for Valentines, but with a different shaped cutter they’d be great for Easter too!
