I’m trying to think ahead to Valentine’s Day this year and come up with an easy, creative dessert just for me and my hubby. I wanted something that I could quickly and sneakily make after the girls are in bed that we could enjoy together. These 5 minute brownies for two are just the ticket! They turned out moist and yummy, and they seriously took me less than 5 minutes to make.
