“A perfectly decadent dark chocolate truffle brownie--perfect for Valentine's Day or other romantic occasion like anniversaries, -or- just because!. Tip: to take these brownies seriously over the top, lay a heart shaped stencil over each portion (before cutting), and sift powdered sugar over the top. Remove stencil, and oooh-la-la! Serve with hot fudge sauce or fresh raspberries and whipped cream, if desired.”
