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

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.
