Red Velvet Brownies

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

-White chocolate chips (optional)


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.
