Always a requested Recipe. Makes plenty of treats for adults and kids. I use a white chocolate ganache to frost the cutout brownies. I melt white chocolate chips and think them just a bit with butter and milk or cream. It adds suce a decadent touch. Holiday themed sprinkles add a fun finishing touch or a light drizzle of chocolate adds a touch of elegance.

Ii've made this recipe several times and it's always fun to give. I usually double or triple it and give it to many on Valentine's day. I now use a prepared chocolate or vanilla glaze and then use chocolate or multicolor sprinkles. The brownies are very tasty...thanks to the buttermilk, they are moist and tender.

Wanted to send valentines to grandkids across the country. Found this recipe on-line, and they turned out very flavorful, very pretty- plump cake-like brownies. These would be good for a group of young people to decorate. And the shape/cookie-cutter/imagination determines how else this recipe might be presented. Absolutely delish! Jack-O-lanterns easter eggs, draidels sp? angels ***** nuts, frosting, powdered sugar little candies, etc etc. raisins currants cranberries
