I actually whipped these up on the weekend but I thought they would make an awesome Valentine's day dessert! Aren't they pretty! Eating these would definitely be a good way to start or end your Valentine's day, who says you cant have dessert for breakfast.
I hope you enjoy this healthy dessert as much as we did. There are many different raw brownie recipes that I have played around with, this is my compilation of all of the recipes and experiments I've done.

I thought I would also throw in some other craft ideas that I have made for Valentines Day.
Mike is a huge tea drinker! He loves tea! He has multiple cups a day, every tea from earl grey, green tea, rooibos, and all herbal tea's!
So I made him a special teabag for his morning tea on Valentines Day. Isn't it Cute!
We use loose leaf tea a lot, gotta love Davids Tea! So I filled one of our tea bags with some loose leaf tea, folded the corners and the top and put one staple through it to hold it in place. Then I took these cute felt hearts that I found at Michaels on the weekend and stitched some embroidery thread to them and attached the heart and thread to the tea bag, and TA DA a wonderful straight from the heart Valentines gift.
This is another great idea which I made for Mike for one of his Christmas Presents but would work perfect for Valentines Day too. This is no new idea it is all over Pinterest! But I thought I would share with you what mine looked like and some of my favourite ones.
