Valentine's Day is right around the corner and it's the ideal time to bake up something pink for your sweetie. My husband's Mamaw gave me this recipe years ago. It always reminds me of her. It also reminds me of my Grandmother Mary and her Strawberry Cake, but way easier. Only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes in the oven and you've got an adorable valentine in no time. I've included a free valentine printable that says "Shooting for Brownie Points Valentine," complete with cute little arrows. It's a very simple recipe that starts with a boxed cake mix. You could switch up the flavors and use a chocolate or lemon cake mix, but I think the strawberry makes a perfectly pink brownie that makes a great homemade gift.

1 box Strawberry Cake Mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan and set aside. With a mixer, combine cake mix, oil and eggs until well-mixed. Spread batter evenly into pan. (The batter will be very thick and sticky. I usually spray a spatula with PAM to help it spread easier.) Bake approximately 14-16 minutes, or until edges start to barely brown. While brownies are baking whisk together powdered sugar and milk to create a glaze. Spread glaze over warm brownies. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
