Red Velvet Brownies

I was pinning away the other day and came across a very interesting and tempting hybrid: red velvet brownies.  Of course, I had to try the recipe and they were delicious and perfect to bring along for Easter. So gooey and the taste is very unique.

Red Velvet Brownies

  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons red food coloring

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350.  Butter and flour an 8 x 8 cake pan.  In a small bowl, combine cocoa powder, red food coloring, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to create a paste.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then add remaining teaspoon of vanilla. With the mixer on medium speed, add in cocoa powder mixture. Beat until batter is completely red. (If at this time your batter is NOT red, you can add a little more food coloring if desired. Color will depend on brand.) Add flour and salt, mixing until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.   Spread in the 8 x 8 pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting. Enjoy!
