Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting
AND A GIVEAWAY!
Happy Valentine’s Day! I don’t typically post on Tuesdays, but since today is a special day, I wanted to share something really yummy with you guys! I can’t believe that I have had this blog for 9 months and have not yet posted a red velvet recipe! I LOVE red velvet anything! And although it may be a little cliche to post a red velvet recipe today, I don’t even care because these red velvet brownies are so good!
I made this recipe up on the fly and while these brownies were pretty good, they were a little too cakey for my taste. I prefer brownies that are somewhere in between being cakey and fudgey. So, when you read the recipe, I provided the recipe I followed, but if you would prefer for your brownies to be fudgier, please note the changes in parentheses.
Hubs and I will be staying in and plan to have a nice fondue dinner at home tonight. We HATE crowds and are total homebodies, so a nice relaxing night at home is perfect for me! What are you all doing today?
After you read the recipe, don’t forget to scroll down to enter my GIVEAWAY!!
Ok, now that we got the brownies out of the way, let’s get to the giveaway! If you like me on Facebook, you may have been reading that I was trying to get to 500 likes. Well, thanks to some wonderful support of my readers and other bloggers, I got to 500! I made a promise that when I got to 500 I would have a giveaway!
A couple of weeks ago, I posted my list for Valentine’s Day Gifts for Foodies. One of the items I featured was this adorable coffee scoop from Uncommon Goods:
