No, I’m not back to cooking just yet although the little one is 3 weeks old now so I should consider it . . . Had this in my drafts. Enjoy!
My husband’s favorite cake is Red Velvet. I get tired of just having the cake sometimes so I knew when I saw this recipe in Southern Living Magazine that we had to give it a try. They were a huge success. They are VERY rich which means that they lasted us a long time . . . who am I kidding? I was 9 months pregnant and NAILED those suckers. :) Yummy!
-1 (4oz) bittersweet chocolate baking bar, chopped
-3/4 cup butter
-2 cups sugar
-4 large eggs
-1 1/2 cups flour
-1 (1 oz) bottle red liquid food coloring
-1 1/2 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1/8 tsp salt
-Your favorite Cream Cheese Frosting

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line bottom and sides of a 9” square pan with foil or spray with non-stick spray.
2. Microwave chocolate and butter on High for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring at 30 second intervals. Whisk in sugar. Add eggs, 1 at a time, whisking just until blended after each addition. Gently stir in flour and next 4 ingredients. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
3. Bake at 350 for 44 to 48 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool completely on a wire rack (about 2 hours).
3. Life brownies from pan using foil sides as handles (I kept mine in the baking pan to store). Top with your Cream Cheese Frosting. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
