Red Velvet Brownie Bites

Why This Recipe Works

Easy to make. The recipe is simple to make and is all done by hand so no need for fancy mixers.

Perfect brownie texture. This recipe makes decadent chewy brownies with a fudgy centre.

Shiny crackle top. These brownies are perfect and have the shiny crinkle crust on top.

Step by Step Instructions

Start by preheating your oven to 350F and grease a mini muffin pan.

Chop the bakers chocolate and place in a microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave by stopping and stirring the chocolate in 15 second increments. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine melted butter and sugar and whisk by hand until smooth.

Add in the eggs and vigorously mix 5 minutes. Doing this breaks down the eggs and gives the brownies that shinny crackle top. Mix in the vanilla and buttermilk, and food colouring.

red velvet brownie batter

Pour in the melted chocolate and whisk until mixture is well combined.

Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Using a rubber spatula mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop 1.5 tablespoons worth of batter into each mini muffin tin. Once all tins are filled, hit the pan a few times on the counter to help spread the batter.

Cook brownies for 12-13 minutes or until they have puffed up and the tops are shiny. You don’t want to over bake.

Let the brownie bites cool in the pan until they are room temperature. Gently run a knife around the edges to pop them out.

Frequently Asked Questions

STORING THE BROWNIES

These brownies should be stored at room temperature in an airtight container. If stored properly these brownies keep well up to 4 days after baking.

CAN I LEAVE OUT THE BUTTERMILK?

Yes, you can omit the buttermilk if you don’t have it. Traditionally red velvet is made with vinegar but I prefer buttermilk because it’s not so overpowering. You can leave the buttermilk out, it just wont have that classic red velvet taste. I have left it out and they are still delicious!

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

DO I NEED TO BRING MY EGGS TO ROOM TEMPERATURE?

Yes you do. Room temperature ingredients break down easier in the batter. This will give you a fudgier brownie and that perfect shiny crackle top.

If you forget to take your eggs out of the fridge, no worries! Just run them under warm tap water for a few minutes and this will bring them to room temperature.

Frequently Asked Questions

STORING THE MUFFINS

These muffins are best eaten on the day you bake them. After that the crumb topping becomes moist and no longer crunchy. You can store these muffins at room temperature for up to three days.

DO I NEED TO BRING MY EGG TO ROOM TEMPERATURE?

Yes you do. Room temperature eggs break down easier in the batter. This means less mixing, which gives you a fluffy moist muffin. If you forget to take your egg out of the fridge (I always do) just run your egg under warm water for a few minutes.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

What Does Beaten Egg Mean?

Beaten egg means an egg that is already mixed up. To do this crack an egg in a bowl and whisk together till broken down. Doing this means you have to mix the batter less, which leads to a more moist muffin.

FAQ

Storing the Magic Cookie Bars

These bars should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature, they keep well up to 4 days.

What Are Oreo Baking Crumbs?

They are a chocolate cookie baking crumb made by Oreo with Oreo cookies. If you can not find these you can use chocolate baking crumbs. They should be found in your baking isle at the grocery store by the graham cracker crumbs.

Do I have to cool them before slicing?

Yes, this is an important step. If you cut them while they’re warm the bars will fall apart.

Can I leave out the coconut?

No, the coconut binds the bar together and has to be used. These bars do not have an over powering coconut flavour though.
