Once the cake is out of the oven, top it off with a cute phrase and you’ve got yourself a giant conversation-heart-inspired treat:
On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you’re crunched for time, this recipe from Gimme Some Oven should do the trick. This one simply requires sprinkling conversation hearts onto brownie batter before baking.
