Valentines Day Chocolate Brownie Hearts

Chocolate Brownie Heart Platter
I'm not really into Valentines Day - it's a bit commercialised for me, but even though hubby and I don't celebrate (it's been about 10 years since we last went out for a meal on Valentines Day I think), I do like to make a bit of effort these days for the kids.

If you're of my persuasion and not really fussed about it, but feel like you ought to make the effort for your loved one or the kids, these easy chocolate brownie hearts are the perfect recipe for you!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING A CHOCOLATE BROWNIE HEART PLATTER

  1. I added some fudge pieces to the brownie batter but  you could use chopped up chocolate bars (Mars Bars and Double Decker's work well), dried fruit or nuts instead (in the same quantity as I used the fudge).
  2. I made a quick salted caramel sauce to drizzle over the brownie hearts and the red raspberries added a nice colour contrast. You could even use a shop bought sauce or coulis and decant it into a nice jug.
  3. Once out of the oven, chill the brownies for a few hours before cutting into heart shapes with a heart biscuit cutter. They will be much easier to cut when cold.
  4. Dust with cocoa powder or icing sugar and serve. A dollop of clotted cream would make it the ultimate indulgent treat.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
