The Only Dessert You Need This Valentine’s Day

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at La Verne chapter.

Can you believe it’s already almost Valentine’s Day? It seems like just yesterday that we were worrying about what to get our loved ones for Christmas. Well, what better way to express love to your loved ones/significant other than giving them something homemade? And for those single ladies, what better way to spend Valentine’s Day than indulging in chocolate heaven? I know, for you non-creative gals out there the word ‘homemade’ is your “enemy”, but this Valentine’s Day Brownie Truffle is a piece of cake (haha).


What you need:

  • 1 box of fudge brownie mix
  • 1 can of 16 oz cream cheese frosting
  • chocolate chips (of your choice)
  • sprinkles
  • *40~ sticks
  • mini muffin paper
  • *cake pop holder

*If you want to make it into a cake pop.



1. Follow the instructions on the brownie mix to make the brownie.

2. After the brownie is done, let it cool.

3. Dump cooled brownie into a bowl, and crumble it into tiny pieces.

4. Add ¼ of the cream cheese frosting into the crumbled brownie (1/5 if you don’t want it to be too sweet).

5. Mix mix mix!

(It will look like this).

6. Take one spoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball.

7. Put it on parchment paper.

8. Continue rolling each spoonful into a ball.*

9. Put it in the fridge for 1-2 hours OR in the freezer for around 45 minutes (I actually let mine “cool” in the fridge overnight.)

10. Melt the chocolate according to the directions on the back of the bag (you’ll most likely use only half of the chocolate chips).

11. Dip the brownie balls one at a time into the melted chocolate with a spoon covering every spot needed to be covered.

12. Put it on the mini muffin paper and add sprinkles on top.*

*Cake pop instructions: after rolling it into a ball, add the sticks. After cooling it, follow the chocolate instructions, stick it into the cake pop holder, and add sprinkles.
