I get asked often if recipes can be halved and that really depends on the recipe. It is tricky to split baking recipes, because you want to ensure you still have the proper amount of levying.
With Valentine’s Day in mind, I made a small batch of brownies! This is the perfect way to say ‘I love you’ without having leftover treats for a week (although that wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world).
This recipe makes about 4 large pieces of brownie, but I cut mine using a heart shaped cookie cutter!
These brownies are really fudgey and have an extra ‘kick’ that comes from a dash of cayenne pepper 😛 But feel free to omit that if you don’t like heat in your dessert.
