Red Velvet Brownies


I’m so excited to share this Red Velvet Brownie recipe with you.

These are absolutely to DIE for!

I’ve made many a batch of red velvet brownies looking for the recipe that is “the one.”

Finally, I found it.

This one is IT for me.


The brownies have a wonderful chocolaty-ness to them that so many red velvet cake recipes, brownies, cookies, etc are sadly, sadly lacking.

They’re marvelously chewy/fudgy with the essential crunchy brownie top.

For me, this cream cheese icing is the perfect red velvet cake icing.

The icing recipe makes the ideal quantity to nicely frost the top of the brownies. I adore the ratio of icing to brownie.

Honestly, I can’t tell you how very much I LOVE these.


I’m planning on posting my Red Velvet Cheesecake recipe very soon so stay tuned for more red velvet LOVE !!!

    Baked these tonight. Was a bit disappointed on how thin they were considering those in the picture look nice and thick. Possibly would double next time if using 9 X 13 pan. Also, 40-45 minutes was entirely too long. Would probably be fine if recipe was doubled but certainly will over cook based on the original recipe above.

      Hi Abby. Hmmm. I’ve made these a lot and the recipe always seems to work really well. I wonder if you might be experiencing an oven temperature variance? Regarding the photo, I definitely took a close up so do you think that made them seem super thick? I’m not sure. I wonder if anyone else has had that experience and if so if I should change the photo. They seem to me to be standard brownie thickness.

    Just pulled these out of the oven, taking them to a friend’s party tomorrow. They came out perfectly. I used an 8×8 and baked for 45 minutes. Very thick. They are cooling now and I am preparing the frosting. I have never baked anything from scratch before and did not have any trouble. Thank you!

      Thanks so much for sharing Cassidy. So glad you liked the recipe 😉 Enjoy them!

    The recipe was written using a 9″ square pan; if Abby used a 9″x13″ pan that would explain why her brownies weren’t as thick. It also would explain why they were done in less time… I haven’t tried them yet, but they sound delicious!

      Hey Amy! I’ve done stuff like that too many times to count!
