Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Frosting

1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 T. cocoa powder
2 T red food coloring (I used red food color paste so in that case, less than 2T)

Preheat oven to 350. Line 8 x 8 pan with nonstick foil. In a small bowl, mix cocoa powder, food coloring and vanilla to form a paste. Set aside.
In a mixer, cream butter and sugar till fluffy. Add eggs. On low, mix in the cocoa powder paste, flour and salt. Mix only until combined. Spread evenly in the pan and bake 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely. At this point you have delicious CHEWY brownies. Serve as is or with powdered sugar if you want. Or…to guild the lily, proceed to white chocolate frosting!

White Chocolate Frosting:

1 stick butter, at room temperature
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar (I sifted this through a fine colander to reduce lumps)
1 tsp. vanilla
4 ounces white chocolate, melted (melt slowly & carefully in microwave)
1/2 tablespoon milk (I added a little more to thin it out-eyeball it)

Cream butter in mixer till fluffy. Add vanilla. On low, mix in powdered sugar, then white chocolate. Add milk to reach desired consistency. Whip on medium a few seconds till fluffy! Spread on cooled brownies. Chill and then cut! Take a picture for the bake along album!!

    Hi, I hate to sound dumb, but what is the difference between Red Velvet cake, and Chocolate cake, other than the red food coloring? I have never had red velvet cake.

    Is the”frosting” later solid? It looks like it is from the picture, and since it’s the same thickness as the brownie I’m thinking maybe it is, but just checking. Thanks! And thanks for all the gear recipes you come up with!

    My daughter and I made these today. We are in love with them! I think it’s my new favorite brownie and am certain it’s because of the frosting. Thanks for sharing!
