Red Velvet Brownies

Just in time for Valentine’s Day I found this awesome recipe on the web. A food blog called “The Recipe Critic” site and the blogger’s name is Alyssa and she lives her in Utah. Her blog is amazing. Check her site out on the web! I changed just a bit by making half the recipe, cooked it in a loaf pan, and then of course I made it Gluten Free. But other than that it was the same, LOL. I hope you enjoy it too.

Red Velvet Brownies

1 (4-oz.) bittersweet chocolate baking bar, broken into pieces ¾ cup butter 2 cups sugar 4 large eggs 1½ cups all-purpose flour 1 Tablespoon bottled red liquid food coloring 1½ teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Cream Cheese Frosting: 1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened 3 tablespoons butter, softened 1½ cups powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 inch pan with parchment paper allowing 2 inches to hang over the sides. Lightly grease the paper.

2. In a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate and butter stirring after 30 seconds each time being careful not to burn the chocolate. Whisk in the sugar and add the eggs one at a time until blended. Add the flour, red food coloring, baking powder, and vanilla. Stir until fully incorporated.

3. Pour into the bottom of your prepared baking pan and bake for 40-44 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean with moist crumbs. Cool completely.

4. Make the cream cheese frosting: Beat together the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and continue to beat until creamy. Frost the COOLED brownies.

**To make Gluten Free instead of regular flour use Gluten Free Flour and if your flour doesn’t contain it add ½ teaspoon xanthium gum. Beat about 3 minutes after you add the flour, to activate the xanthium gum.
