Did you know that the history of red velvet desserts is really about the colour more than anything. I read this blog post and was shocked. Which means I can pretty much add any colour to a dessert recipe and make it really cool. Either way, I started thinking of what was somewhat easy to make as a dessert and wouldn’t take too much time and the red velvet brownie idea came up. I mean for those that have had the white chocolate brownie(none can compare) or the triple chocolate chunk brownies, this isn’t that different except I used white chocolates as toppings. This is a lovely dessert to share with your partner. It is chewy and chocolatey and you can serve it with frosting, ice-cream or whipped cream. Yum. Enjoy making this. xoxo
