Umm.. I had nothing valentine-y planned for this year's Valentine's Day.. nothing at all! But when I woke up to flowers, desserts, chocolates and cards - I kinda felt compelled to make something for the Valentines of my life! Well, at least for one of them! The husband is traveling (he left this morning), so his treat will have to wait!

Though I am not too big on these 'special days' anymore, I would be lying if I say that I wasn't pleased to see the red tulips and the salted caramel cheesecake and salted almond chocolate and the cute cards!

I am still recovering from a fever (and the whole jing-bang of ailments it brings along with it), so this was the easiest treat that I could pull-off in under 30 minutes! I think it took me longer to take the photos! I just couldn't make the light work for me yesterday! That's what happens when the brain is all muddled up and under the influence of fever + cold medication.

But the smile.. the smile on his face was all worth it! Happy kid, happy Ma!

How to make Fudgy Brownie for Two (Small Batch Brownie)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease two 8 oz ramekins and keep aside

Melt 4 tbsp of butter in the microwave (I used a microwave safe measuring cup). Add the sugar to the melted butter and nuke it in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Take it out, give it a vigorous stir and put it back in for another 30 seconds. Stir in the cocoa powder, instant coffee granules and vanilla essence along with the fat pinch of salt.

Once the mixture has cooled down a bit, crack in the egg and stir to combine.

Next, sift the flour and baking powder into the measuring cup and mix in well.

Lastly fold in the chocolate chips and divide the batter equally into the two prepped ramekins.

Bake for 17 to 20 minutes till done.

Let the brownies cool down a bit, dust with confectioner's sugar and decorate with sprinkles and serve.
