Valentine’s Day Cookie recipe aka brownies are so popular

This Valentine’s Day cookie recipe is so fun that they made me the most popular mom throughout all three of my kids’ younger years of school. Now my teenage daughters make them themselves, and they are requested by all their friends. And don’t count out the adults, as they’re usually the first to grab a brownie.   Cut into small squares to please a crowd. Using Valentine M&M’s or theme your brownies.  Not just for Valentine’s Day, adapt for Easter and Spring though, make year-round using the season’s holiday colored candies!  Save a trip to the store and get Valentine’s Day M&M’s here.
