Bulldog Game Day Red Velvet Brownies

Bulldog Game Day Red Velvet Brownies

2

I tried out a new recipe today for the UGA/Tech game and so far these aren’t turning out to be “lucky” brownies.  We are only a few minutes into the game and things are looking grim for the Dawgs.  I’m trying to keep a positive outlook!

I have my lucky Tervis tumbler, too…also not helping today.

Hopefully, I can update this post in a while with better results!

Now as for the brownies,  I try not to think about the massive amounts of food coloring going through my body as I enjoy these, but Brown Velvet Brownies are just…well…brownies.  So, forget about the coloring and give them a try.  Now, back to the game.

Red Velvet Brownies

adapted from Southern Living Best Loved Christmas Classics

1  (4-oz) package bittersweet chocolate baking bar, chopped

3/4 cup butter

2 cups sugar

4 large eggs

1 (1-oz) bottle red liquid food coloring

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

Topping

1/2  (8-oz package) cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 egg whites

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line bottom and sides of a 13X9 inch pan with aluminum foil, allowing 2 inches to extend over sides; lightly grease.  Heat butter and chocolate together in a small saucepan.  Add to the 2 cups of sugar using a whisk.  Add eggs one at a time, whisking after each addition.  Add food coloring and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.  Stir in flour and salt.  Pour into pan.

In another bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup sugar.  Add egg whites and remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla.  Beat with a mixer until blended.  Stir in two tablespoons flour.  Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls over batter in pan; gently swirl with a knife.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes.  Cool completely in pan (about 1 hour).  Lift from pan using foil sides. Remove foil and cut into squares.
