These Red Velvet Brownies offer a delightful twist on the classic chocolate dessert, incorporating the iconic red velvet flavor into a dense, chewy brownie that’s sure to impress. Topped with a creamy cheese swirl, this dessert is both visually stunning and deliciously satisfying.

The Story

Red velvet’s origins are as rich as its flavor, with roots stretching back to the Victorian era. It was during this time that cooks began adding cocoa to their cakes to soften the flour, inadvertently creating a more tender, flavorful cake. The addition of red food coloring, or beet juice in earlier recipes, gave the cake its distinctive look. This recipe takes that traditional cake and reimagines it as a brownie, blending the best of both worlds.

How to Serve

Serve these brownies as is or with a dusting of powdered sugar for an extra touch of elegance. They’re perfect alongside a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. For a more decadent treat, top them with homemade whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

How to Store

Store the brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or refrigerate them for up to a week. To maintain the best texture, let them come to room temperature before serving if chilled.


  • Use high-quality cocoa powder and red food coloring for the best flavor and color.
  • Don’t overmix the batter to ensure the brownies remain dense and fudgy.
  • Allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting into them to get clean slices.
