Easy Valentines Day Dessert

One of the things I like about this dessert is that since it based on a boxed brownie mix,  it is very quick and easy to make. I like to make treats that look complex but are really simple.

The brownies are frosted with a simple strawberry frosting, and then topped off with a layer of gooey melted chocolate.

A pink cake is being dipped in chocolate.

Then they are finished off with a layer of crushed strawberry candies. My kids loved these, but they are pretty sweet!

A box of chocolate covered in red and white sprinkles.

So if you have a little bit less of a sweet tooth you could leave off the crushed candy and it would be more chocolatey.  Next time I am going to make half with the crushed candy for the kids and half without for the adults!
