My husband is crazy about brownies, so I knew I wanted to make him some for Valentine's Day. While searching for red velvet brownies, I kept finding recipes that used mixes. I'm not big on mixes because it forces me to buy something while I probably have all the ingredients to make them at home plus I like being exactly aware of how much fat, sodium and sugar I'm about to ingest or feed my family. So when I found this recipe I knew the search was over.
A word of warning, the chocolate swirl may be too intense for some people. I know it was for me. Next time I'll probably use Nutella instead of semi-sweet chocolate.
These would be equally appropriate for Christmas, maybe using white chocolate for the swirling would make the squares look a bit like candy cane?
Note that I doubled the original recipe because I only have a 10-inch square pan, not a 8-inch one (plus from the pictures the brownies looked thin and I wanted thicker ones).
