Kneaders Stuck Up Brownies

This recipe Kneaders Bakery showed on Good Things Utah a while back-- I think they would be so CUTE for Valentine's Day!

I added my favorite brownie recipe as well!

Brownie Ingredients:

1 cup butter
4 oz unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (mexican vanilla)
4 eggs
1 cup flour
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Brownie Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. In a saucepan melt unsweetened chocolate and butter, stirring constantly. Let mixture cool slightly, then add sugar, eggs and vanilla and mix well with spatula. Add flour and stir to combine. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread into a prepared 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan. Baker for 25 minutes, careful not to overcook. Let cool completely before frosting with Fudge Frosting (recipe follows).

Fudge Frosting Ingredients:

1 square Bakers unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
pinch of salt
dash vanilla (mexican vanilla)

Fudge Frosting Directions:

In a saucepan place chocolate, sugar, cream and salt. Cook over medium heat to soften. Try to resist stirring once it has melted to avoid sugaring of the frosting. Remove from heat and transfer to clean mixing bowl of an electric mixer. Beat until cook and thickened to fudge frosting consistency. Stir in vanilla to taste. Frost cooled brownies and let set.

Stuck Up Brownie Ingredients:

9-inch by 13-inch pan of frosted brownies
3 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup dark chocolate coins
25-40 wooden skewers

Stuck Up Brownie Direction:

Using a 1 to 1 1/2 inch ice cream scoop, scoop out level scoop of frosted brownies. Deposit on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Insert wooden skewers into the top of brownie mound, almost all the way to the bottom. Put sheet into freezer for about 5 minutes so they can set. Melt milk chocolate. Talk the brownies out of the freezer and dip each one in the milk chocolate up to the stick. Fill cookie sheet back up with dipped brownies, and place then into the refrigerator until set. Melt dark chocolate and drizzle over the tip of the brownies after they have set completely. Tie with Valentine ribbon and serve.
