For a nice valentines day touch, cut a small heart out of a piece of paper. Using the non-paper part of the heart image, place paper over a piece of brownie and using a strainer (or sifter), sift some powdered sugar into the heart shape. Remove the paper and voila! A lovely little heart shape on the top of your special (and delicious!) dessert.
