Looking back on Valentine’s Day as a kid always makes me smile.  Putting together your Valentine’s for your classmates, and decorating a shoe-box clad with construction paper and glitter for receiving Valentines from your friends, to proudly display at school.  Sometimes were even able to sneak in a hand-made sugar cookie or popcorn ball colored brightly with pink and red frosting.

Unfortunately, the last couple years, due to allergy and dietary restrictions, my son’s school has asked that no food be included with Valentine’s.  I do understand, really, I do.  Although, I must say, that having a food blogger as a mama, Harrison is seriously missing out on having his mommy make some impressive sweets for his buddies.  ( I guess that’s what birthday’s are for, right?)  So while were not able to have those yummy Valentine’s treats at school, I thought that Harrison and I would enjoy some treats here at home during our snow day.

These bars are the perfect treat reminiscent of Valentines Days of the past.  The sugar cookie bottom, and the brownie top, combine two tasty treats into one pretty bar.  Drizzled with white chocolate, they are great to customize for any holiday, birthday, or celebration where treats are in order.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13" pan with non-stick foil.
  2. For sugar cookie layer: in a mixing bowl combine flour and salt. In a separate bowl with mixer, beat butter and sugar on low until creamy. Gradually add the flour mixture and combine. Stir in the white chocolate chips. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the lined pan. Put the pan into the freezer while preparing the brownie layer. (Don't skip this step, as it ensure that the sugar cookie and brownie stay separated, achieving two defined layers.
  3. For brownie layer: In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, sugar and salt. In a separate bowl, combine melted butter, egg, milk and vanilla. With mixer, gradually combine dry and wet ingredients. Beat on low just until ingredients are combined stopping to scrape down sides of bowl. Stir in chocolate chips to batter. On top of the cold sugar cookie layer, dollop the brownie batter, and spread evenly.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool completely after baking. When cooled, lift the foil and bars from the pan. But the bars on a cutting board, and drizzle with the melted candy melts. Serve.

  9. That is sad he can't share his momma's awesome treats at school. When we lived in the bigger town, we couldn't bring anything from home.... but I actually snuck my treats in. This is so bad, but I grabbed a box where you gather donuts from the grocery store bakery and I put the treats in there for my little one to take them to school! I know, that is way bad! Doesn't really make sense, I was giving credit to the local store! This brownies are gorgeous. The how you created the layers!
