Red Velvet Brownies Recipe with White Chocolate Frosting


The perfect Valentine’s Day dessert recipe is in the form of this delicious confection: Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Frosting.

My husband, Jeremy, favors brownies without frosting, but I love them frosted. This recipe? Well, even my husband (and the neighbor girls next door) agreed that these are awesome.

This tasty red dessert can work for more holidays than just Valentine’s Day! Would these Red Velvet Brownies not be a great take-along for Christmas or even the Fourth of July? Recipe instructions slightly tweaked from the How Sweet it is Blog.

Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Frosting

Only need an 8 x 8 pan of brownies? Simple halve the brownie recipe. Grease and flour an 8 x 8 pan instead--but watch your oven. You don't want to over-bake these lovelies!

I would, however, encourage you to bake a bigger batch and share with those around you. Who doesn't like and appreciate homemade baked goods?
