As Valentine's Day approaches, the search for the perfect treat to surprise your loved one is on. What better way to express your affection than with a deliciously decadent dessert? Enter the Valentine's Day Brownie. Combining the rich, chocolatey goodness of brownies with the freshness of strawberries, the creaminess of whipped cream, and the playful touch of heart sprinkles, this dessert is not just a treat for the taste buds but also a feast for the eyes.

The Origin of the Brownie: A Sweet History

Before we dive into the recipe, let's take a moment to appreciate the origins of the brownie, a staple in the world of desserts. The brownie, as we know it today, was invented in the United States at the end of the 19th century. There are several versions of its origin story, but one popular tale credits the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago for creating the first brownie. This treat was requested by Bertha Palmer for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. The result was a fudgy, chocolate confection with walnuts and an apricot glaze, a far cry from today's variations but delicious nonetheless. The brownie has since evolved, traversing continents and delighting palates worldwide, making it a perfect base for our Valentine's Day creation.

Method:

Preheat your air fryer at 160c.

Prepare the brownie batter in a mixing bowl as directed on the box, using the required additional ingredients. Use the HM4 Electric Hand Mixer to ensure all the ingredients are fully mixed.

Pour the mixture into a baking tray lined with baking paper and smooth the top with a spoon or spatula.

Bake as per the box instructions until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow the brownie to cool completely in the tray.

Assemble the Delight: Once the brownie has cooled, place it onto a plate, add your whipped cream and fresh strawberries, ideally sliced.

Final Touches: Add a sprinkle of heart-shaped sprinkles over the strawberries and whipped cream for that perfect Valentine's Day touch.

Serve and Enjoy: Your Valentine's Day Brownie is now ready to serve. This dessert can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator until you're ready to surprise your loved one!
