These caramel swirl gluten-free brownies are such an indulgent, delicious Valentine’s Day treat. And, a bonus they boast a surprisingly gooey center that will melt your heart! The secret to achieving a gooey center for any brownie recipe you follow is to watch your oven carefully and underbake your brownies slightly. There is really nothing worse than a dry brownie!
I love the surprising touch of baking in different shaped pans and for Valentine’s Day there’s nothing more enjoyable than using a heart shape! You could also bake these in individual heart shaped silicone molds for the perfect brownie portion.
To remove the whole heart shaped brownie without it falling apart, it’s best to cool your brownies first and then refrigerate them to harden. Then the entire brownie will come out easily, and you can plate and slice it.
Treat yourself and your valentine to these brownies; love knows no bounds, and neither should your indulgences.
