I spend many weekends in my pjs, on my bed, watching food network. No sense in denying it. I love lazy sundays.
Sunny Anderson, Love her! She was on and had made a batch of Red Velvet Swirl Brownies. BROWNIES. RED VELVET. OMG. I had everything except the red food coloring… but i made it anyway. Makes for a GREAT pre Holiday Nibbler!
Red Velvet Swirl Brownies Recipe courtesy Sunny Anderson, 2010
1 tablespoon butter, for greasing baking pan
Red Velvet Brownie layer:
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon red food coloring
1 teaspoon vinegar
3/4 cup flour
1/4 – 1/2 cup walnuts, gently chopped, (amount is to taste)
Cream Cheese layer:
8 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Sonny Says: Remove to a bowl and add sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt,
food coloring and vinegar, in that order mixing between additions. Whisk eggs in a small bowl and combine with warm cocoa mix. Fold the flour into the chocolate batter and combine lightly. Add walnuts and pour into prepared baking dish, saving a ¼ cup of batter for the top.
Fudgy, Sweet, pretty looking!
Easy to travel with!
and perfect to lay out for company!
these were a hit! If i had red food coloring, i am sure these would have been even MORE stunning! I am very pleased with this recipe and will definitely be making them again for company, or just because!
