Red Velvet Brownies

by foodlikecake

These red velvet brownies are so good. They’re very soft and have the hint of cocoa that makes red velvet so delicious. And of course, I had to pair red velvet with a cream cheese frosting. πŸ™‚ The whipped cream cheese frosting is seriously amazing. It’s very much like a thick whipped cream, except with that tangy cream cheese flavor we all love. You won’t be able to stop eating these brownies, or the frosting!


Ingredients: Red Velvet Brownies

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

1 cup granulated sugar

red food coloring

1/4 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

2 large eggs, cold

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1 cup powdered sugar

2 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 and 1/3 cups heavy whipping cream, cold

Recipe: Red Velvet Brownies

Preheat oven to 350F and grease and line with parchment paper a 8×8 square pan.

Combine hot melted butter, sugar, and food coloring until creamy.

Mix in the cocoa powder and salt.

Beat in eggs, vanilla, and vinegar at a time.

Mix in flour until smooth.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or a toothpick comes out clean.

Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

Whip the cream cheese until smooth, and then add in the powdered sugar.

Mix in the vanilla.

While on medium-high speed, slowly pour in the heavy whipping cream until the frosting thickens. The consistency will be like a very thick whipped cream.


Enjoy and remember to take a moment and remember all of our fallen soldiers.
