Tasty Tuesday

              We love brownies, and I haven't met a brownie yet that we wouldn't eat! Just call us the Brownie Bunch! One of my grand daughter's loves my brownies so much, it's all she wants everytime we see her, so this post is for her! With Valentines Day coming up soon, I thought I'd make my loved ones something different this year and this Red Velvet Brownie is just the perfect thing!

Red Velvet Brownie


  • (4-oz.) bittersweet chocolate baking bar, chopped
  • 3/4 cup butter 
  • 2 cups sugar
  • large eggs 
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • (1-oz.) bottle red liquid food coloring
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 
  • Small-Batch Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Garnish: white chocolate curls
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line bottom and sides of a 9-inch square pan with aluminum foil, allowing 2 to 3 inches to extend over sides; lightly grease foil.
  2. 2. Microwave chocolate and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 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. 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).
  4. 4. Lift brownies from pan, using foil sides as handles; gently remove foil. Spread Small-Batch Cream Cheese Frosting on top of brownies, and cut into 16 squares. Garnish, if desired.
Line pan with foil by trimming two long foil pieces to a 9-inch width. Fit strips, crossing each other, in the pan.

  8. Me too! Brownies are my all-time favorite dessert!!! Thanks for the recipe!
