Red Velvet Brookies Recipe

I wrapped up some of these in cute little heart bags I picked up in the “dollar section” at Target… oh yeah, you know the section, where you must buy everything because “it’s only $1.. or $3… or $5″… $70 later, you’re like, look at all these cute random things I got that I totally love but totally didn’t need, haha, yeah that section!

Anyway, the bags came in handy to wrap these up and take them to friends so that I didn’t eat them all myself… because that totally would have happened!

What do you have planned for Valentine’s Day?

I’m heading to Arizona to visit some of my best friends. My friend Bradie will be my Valentine’s date, and we’ll be going to Jimmy & Joe’s Pizzeria for a heart shaped pizza, yes, those exist!  If you’re in the Phoenix, AZ area you should totally grab a heart shaped pizza from Jimmy & Joe’s (owned by my other bestie Amy & her family!)

And then I’ll probably have to bake up another batch of these Red Velvet Brookies for the ladies… because, well, they’re amazing 😉
