This recipe need not be made from scratch. I created a recipe that is really a doctored brownie mix and simple frosting. The frosting is homemade however because I just cannot stand the gummy, too sweet, canned stuff.
You will need:
-Brownie Mix (and eggs, oil, etc)
-1/4 cup sour cream
-1/3 cup melted semi-sweet chocolate chips
-Small heart shaped cookie cutter
(Bake according to box directions)
3 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup milk, 1 stick softened butter, 1/2 tsp vanilla, i pack of chocolate pudding mix. (Add milk in tiny increments as needed)
