Recipe Ingredients

  • 15 small heart-shaped baking molds
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 (19.8 ounce) package chocolate chunk brownie mix
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Butter the heart-shaped molds.
  3. 3 Beat brownie mix, vegetable oil, water, and 1 egg together in a bowl until smooth and well mixed.
  4. 4 Pour the batter into the prepared heart molds.
  5. 5 Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Beat in 1 egg until smooth.
  6. 6 Spoon a dollop of the cream cheese mixture into each heart mold and mix slightly with a knife to make decorative swirls of cream cheese filling in the brownie batter.
  7. 7 Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  8. 8 While brownies are baking, place chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30-second intervals, stirring after each time, until the chocolate is warm, smooth, and melted.
  9. 9 Stir heavy cream into the chocolate. Mixture will be clumpy.
  10. 10 Remove hearts from oven, and immediately spread about 1 tablespoon of chocolate mixture over each heart.
  11. 11 Return the hearts to the oven and bake until the chocolate topping spreads out, about 5 minutes. Cool before serving.
