- 1 (19.5 oz.) package Pillsbury® Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
- 1/2 cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 large eggs

- HEAT oven to 350°F. Coat bottom only of 8-inch springform pan (or 8-inch round cake pan) with no-stick cooking spray.
- PREPARE brownie mix as directed on package using the oil, water and eggs. Bake 50 to 55 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around edges of brownie, remove outer sleeve from springform pan. If using round cake pan, invert brownie onto cooling rack, then turn right side up. Cool completely.

- POINT five-star tip straight down to outer edge of heart outline. Press nozzle gently (amount of pressure determines size of star). Release and lift nozzle forming a star. Repeat placing stars very close together to cover entire brownie.
- ROTATE brownie one-half turn or until heart is sideways. Point tip at a 45° angle at bottom of heart. Press nozzle gently, making one continuous ribbon to outline half of heart. Repeat with other side. Sprinkle stars with decorator sugar.
