does anyone get real mail anymore?
i mean the real stuff like written letters
from family and friends.
i'm asking cuz it seems like forever ago
when i got one. i guess that's the times
these days, and all we get now are
bills and junk mail.
so i made some valentine envelope brownies
to comfort my old melancholy days.
you'll need this if you wanna make some.
but of course you can use any brownie mix and
just bake it in a regular pan.
i like this pan cuz it makes every piece
exactly uniformed which is highly important
for my crafty OCD personality.
the poof part is not really necessary,
it's just that the brownies poofed
while baking. just allow to cool a few
minutes and then flip over on a cooling
rack to cool completely.
now to decorate, i actually decorated the
bottoms of the brownies because i wanted
a flat surface, not a poofy one.
then grab some red melted candy or bark or
frosting or royal icing or whatever you want
and add the envelope lines. then if you want, write
happy valentine's day or whatever sentiment on the sides.
next candy glue your tiny heart for the envelope seal.
i have a million valentine sprinkles but these tiny hearts
i got at 7-11 (yes! 7-11?!!)
seemed to fit the size that i needed.
when all is done, you'll have your yummy delicious truffle valentine envelope brownie.
they're a whole lot more fun to open
than dumb ole bills in the mail.
here's to sweet mail for everyone!
