My daughter had to run to the store Christmas Eve for some forgotten food items. I asked her how many frantic people were shopping. She looked at me curiously. As she thought about it, there were mostly men shopping the last minute to get a gift. This is not a bash men post but to point out that most occasions come up and take you by surprise. Don't let this Valentine's Day take you by surprise and make these ahead. Freeze them and then pull them out the day you need them. I am all about making life stress free. :)

Note from Paula: I doubled the recipe because we wanted a lot of brownie bites. These are so fun and festive for your Valentine’s Day celebrations.
