- Butter: unsalted since we will use salt later
- Brown sugar: instead of granulated sugar so this way we get a thick and soft consistency
- Eggs: I always use large
- Vanilla extract: always use pure vanilla extract
- Vinegar: Gives that telltale red velvet tang
- Cocoa powder: unsweetened cocoa powder, but not Dutch process
- Baking powder: for leavening
- Salt: just a pinch of salt to balance the sweet from the brown sugar
- Flour: be sure to measure the all-purpose flour exactly
- Red food coloring: you can’t have red velvet without the red!
- White chocolate chips: or you can use cream cheese frosting instead
How to make Red Velvet Brownies
- Cream brown sugar and butter in a bowl. It should be crumbly. Add cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
- Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
- Mix in flour.
- Carefully mix in vinegar and red food coloring.
- Then stir in white chocolate chips.
- Press your brownie batter into the prepared pan
- Bake for about 23-25 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees. You know blondies are done once they just lose their glossy sheen. Let it cool completely before slicing into squares.
- You MUST use a metal pan when baking these blondies or the center will not cook.
- Remove your pan from the oven when the center is still a bit uncooked, it should be jiggly. The red velvet brownie will harden during the cooking process. If left in the oven, it may overcook and you won’t have the fudgy brownie you love!
- Omit the white chocolate and frost with cream cheese frosting instead!
It has a chocolate taste and does contain cocoa but is not entirely just chocolate. We only used about a tablespoon of cocoa powder to bring out the red food coloring.
Yes, they do! They are moist in the center and crisp on the edges, the perfect red velvet brownie!
The white vinegar helps with leavening, or expanding the dough.
Yes, you can! Freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months!

Red Velvet Brownies Recipe
- ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter (softened)
- 2 cups (400g) packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon (5g) unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups (258g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon white or distilled vinegar
- 2 tablespoons red food coloring
- 1 ¾ cups (10 ounces or 284g) white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a metal 9×13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
- Cream brown sugar and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. It will be crumbly.
- Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined. Add cocoa, baking powder, salt, and flour and mix. Carefully mix in red food coloring and vinegar.
- Stir in white chocolate chips.
- Press into prepared pan (dough is sticky, spray your hands with cooking spray to avoid it sticking to your hands).
