Red Velvet Brownies White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Red Velvet Brownies White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
For the past three weeks I’ve been craving a yellow butter cake with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream frosting. This post obviously isn’t about that cake. It’s about these Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Frosting that I nearly had to wipe the drool off of my keyboard from when I came across the recipe. I’ve only made one other red velvet recipe in my lifetime and I had forgotten about the destructive power of red food coloring so be prepared to go slowly when it comes time to add it in. [9.2.11 Update] Note: I’ve edited the bake time of the recipe below to better reflect the comments people have left about the brownies being undercooked at 30 minutes. Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting Ingredients For the brownies: For the white chocolate buttercream frosting: Instructions To make the brownies: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

nutella-brownies This recipe is crazy. The good kind of crazy though. The genius kind of crazy. Have you ever had a craving for something, but didn’t have everything that you needed to make it? Of course you have! Now these brownies solve that dilemma for all of us baking-nutella-lover’s. Yes- 3. Are you already scouraging your cabinets for nutella? Nutella + eggs + flour= BROWNIES Even the most kitchen weary individual could mix these up in less than five minutes and be eating them in just 15. Have I sold you yet? Look at how much extra space is left in that muffin cup! Kind of silly. When you bake an exact dozen out of this recipe, you’ll get this height of a brownie. Despite how you and I might feel about this, do NOT overfill the cups! They are supposed to be bites overall… and that’s the proper size for a bite. SO- withstand all urges to fill the muffin cup. My Nutella was a bit stiff so I microwaved it for a few seconds to loosen it up. It helps so that you can mix the eggs in much easier. Maybe 1/3 cup?

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread Looks yummy, right? And let me tell you, this cinnamon bread really is yummy! Immensely! I am actually so impressed by it that I would call it a gift from heaven.

Colorful swirled cupcakes With as many ways as there are to decorate cupcakes, they can be really boring if you just slap some plain icing on them. I like to make them fun and interesting, and one of my favorite ways to do that is with colorful, swirled icing. Rather than mix food coloring into the icing, I use it to paint the decorator bag, creating a result so crazy and cool that you won’t believe you got it from such a simple technique. Let me show you how! Gather the supplies The first things you’ll need, of course, are cupcakes and icing! Select the colors The best part about this technique is that you can choose any colors you want and can customize it to the occasion. You’ll be painting from 4 to 6 stripes of color for your icing, but you can repeat colors, so you really only need at least 2 different colors (up to 6 max). Paint the bags Okay, now for the actual technique! Now use the paint brush to paint stripes of color on the inside of the bag, starting at the tip and going up about 3-4 inches. The results

apple crisp with homemade caramel sauce Well, yesterday I had a horrible time thinking of new and innovative recipes. After deliberating for the whole morning and most of the afternoon, I finally decided on a caramel sauce I had been wanting to try. I thought how nice and simple that would be—apple slices and caramel. And it will take only ten minutes! It did not take ten minutes.
