Chocolate Heartthrobs

How to Pipe Chocolate Heart Shapes: Place 3 unwrapped squares of BAKER'S Chocolate in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after each minute. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Spoon chocolate into plastic sandwich bag; cut a small piece from 1 of the bottom corners of bag. Close bag tightly, then pipe chocolate into a heart shape onto top of each cooled brownie.

Jazz It Up: Garnish each brownie with a gumdrop heart. To make hearts, flatten gumdrops with a rolling pin. Then, use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out a heart shape from each. Place 1 on top of each brownie just before serving. Reserve gumdrop trimmings for snacking or another use.
