Red Velvet Brownies

    It is February, the month of love. Valentine's is a few days away and everywhere you turn you see red, hearts, and chocolate.  What goes best with love?  Chocolate and some booze of course.   Which is what brings me to these awesome brownies.

Red Velvet Brownies


1 cup flour
3 tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1 stick butter (room temperature)
2/3 cup water
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. red food coloring


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Coat a 9-by-13-inch pan with baking spray.  Line pan with foil, leaving an overhang, and coat more with baking spray.

2.  Whisk flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.  Set aside.

3.  In a medium saucepan, add dark brown sugar, butter and water and bring to a simmer.  Remove from heat and whisk in chopped chocolate.  Cool slightly.  Whisk in eggs, one at a time, vanilla, and red food coloring.  Stir in flour mixture.

4.  Add batter in the pan.  Spread evenly.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Cool on a rack, then cut into squares, and top with cream cheese frosting.
