I love to bake. If the oven is glowing, I’m one happy girl. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a full meal or a single batch of cookies for my sweet daughter, the oven is my happy place.
Since Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, I thought I’d mix up something extra-special for the loves of my life. After all, who doesn’t love a sweet treat on the sweetest day of the year?
You’ll always see plenty of chocolates. It’s a popular choice on Feb. 14. But what about something with a pop of color? My recipe this week does just that.
For White Chocolate Red Velvet Brownies, you will need…
2 ½ cups flour
1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
1 ¼ cups brown sugar, packed
1 cup butter, melted
½ cup cocoa
¼ cup milk
1 tbsp. red food coloring
1 ½ tsp. vanilla
¼ tsp. salt
½ pkg. white almond bark
This is a wonderful and unique treat for any of you red velvet fans out there. And they’re just bursting with love.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter and set it aside to cool a bit. In a large bowl, combine the sugars, cocoa, eggs, milk, vanilla, salt and finally the butter. Mix well to remove any lumps.
Slowly add the flour to the mixture making sure it is well-combined before adding more.
Then mix in the magnificent color.
Spread into a greased 9×13 baking dish. Heat the almond bark per the package instructions. Once hot, pour lines of the melted chocolate onto the top of the brownies and swirl with a knife. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until set.
You’ll have to fight the urge to eat these right away or the chocolate won’t set on top. I suggest making them a day ahead, but you should give them at least a few hours to set up. A sweet treat from me to you this Valentine’s Day, and from all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
