Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting





  
   These are Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting..... and they are a party in your mouth  : )  I won't be able to justify how heavenly these are by telling you about them, so you'll just have to trust me and make them immediately. They are easy to prepare, and your house will smell wonderful while they are baking! Also, the frosting makes them all the more delicious. Of course!

   *A quick note before you head into your kitchen and whip these up. When your adding in the eggs, be careful not to mix too much. If you mix the batter too much when incorporating the eggs you can get a meringue type crust on the top when they bake. If you like that sort of thing, then mix away my friends : )  If not, then please only mix until the egg is just incorporated, and you should be safe from any crusting! Now go...... go make these!



RED VELVET BROWNIES
Recipe from: Southern Living
  • 4 oz Bittersweet Chocolate baking bar, chopped
  • 3/4 cup Butter
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 (1 oz) bottle liquid Red Food Coloring
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line bottom and sides of a 9 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, allowing 2-3 inches to extend over sides. Grease with cooking spray.

Microwave chocolate and butter in a large microwavable-safe bowl. Cook for about 1 1/2 minutes until melted and smooth, stirring at 30 second intervals.

Whisk in sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking just until blended. (Be sure not to whisk too much)  Gently stir in flour and the next 4 ingredients. Pour mixture into prepared pan.

Bake at 350 for 42-45 minutes or until wooden tooth pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool in pan for 1 hour. Lift brownies from pan, using foil sides. Let completely cool before frosting.


WHITE CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:
Recipe from: How Sweet It Is
  • 1/2 cup (8 tbsp) Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 4 oz good quality White Chocolate (not chips), melted
  • 2 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream

Directions for Frosting:  In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter until soft and fluffy. Then beat in vanilla. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add in the powdered sugar a half cup at a time. Allow the sugar to mix in before adding each half cup. Once all the powdered sugar has been added, pour in the melted white chocolate and beat on medium speed until incorporated. Add in the heavy cream and continue to beat until it is at your desired consistency. Spread frosting over brownies.

For easy cutting, use a plastic knife.

I don't know why but whenever something is "red velvet" I am the first one to pick it up...I'm very addicted to the sound of it and taste of it!!! This one is no exception. It's even better with white chocolate... What a superb brownie!
