Valentine's Day Brownies with Chocolate Chia Buttercream

Square Root products

The perfect gluten free treat to share with your loved ones this Valentine's Day! Boxed brownies keep this recipe super simple and a heart shaped cookie cutter keeps them extra festive! These brownies are topped with homemade Chocolate Chia Buttercream and sprinkles for the ultimate dessert. 



  1. Bake boxed brownies according to package directions. (My favorite gluten free options are from Aldi - LifeGFree - and Simple Mills.)
  2. When completely cool, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut the brownies into hearts.
  3. Combine butter and chocolate chia nutnola butter in a large bowl and use an electric mixer to beat until creamy and well-combined.  
  4. Gradually (about ⅓ cup at a time), with mixer on low speed add powdered sugar until completely combined. Be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl so all ingredients are well-combined. 
  5. Stir in vanilla extract and salt.
  6. With mixer on low-speed, add milk and mix until well-combined. Gradually increase speed to high and beat for 30 seconds.  
  7. Spread or pipe frosting onto brownies and top with sprinkles!
