Sweet!







Are you tired of the traditional box of candy for Valentine Day and want to do something special for your honey? This is a great idea that doesn't require culinary skills, but a quick trip to the store, a little planning, and some patience.

Sorbet Sandwiches
1 small container raspberry sorbet
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 package brownie mix

Soften the sorbet enough to mix with frozen raspberries. Line an 8x8 baking dish with wax paper. Pour in the fruity sorbet and spread evenly. Freeze until firm.
Mix brownies according to directions. Pour into a well greased 9x13 baking dish. This will make the brownies about 1/3 inch thick. Bake @ 300° for 15-18 minutes until a tooth pick comes out clean. It is easy to over bake because they are so thin. Allow to cool.

Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut 2 brownies per cookie. ~save the remainder for munching. Using the same cookie cutter, cut the frozen sorbet. The wax paper will make it easier to handle~ the extras are for more munching. Stack brownies and sorbet like an oreo cookie, return to the freezer until ready to eat.

I would much rather have these for breakfast in bed than a chocolate pop tart! If you are still looking for the unique Valentine gifts check out Daily Candy , I may get one of those list pads myself.
Y'all enjoy!
Sandi

That's my type of recipe - nice and simple but resulting in something great at the end. Good work.
