Ok, I’ll admit it. I’m a red velvet fanatic. I’ve posted several red velvet recipes, like my Red Velvet Cupcakes, Red Velvet Black and White Cookies, and Red Velvet Cream Cheese Brownies. Obviously I didn’t stop there, and I still have plenty more variations in my head, so I won’t be stopping here. I’ve made a red velvet dessert the past two years for a friend’s 4th of July party, so it’s just become tradition for me. I loved the red velvet cream cheese brownies I made back in February so much, I decided to make these Red Velvet White Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies with M&M’s. They have a bit of a different spin with the white chocolate, and they’re full of patriotic pizzazz. These brownies dazzle as much or more as a sparkler.
I claim that this red velvet brownie dazzles, and it does. Not just in appearance, but in taste. I’m a big brownie person, and as I’ve said, a big red velvet lover. This brownie brings my two favorites together for a moist, decadent, and fudgy brownie with big red velvet flavor. That’s no easy task, but this brownie delivers.
Since red velvet cupcakes always have that luscious cream cheese frosting, it only makes sense that these brownies need some cream cheese action, too. It’s just in the form of a swirl, with some white chocolate for a slightly different flavor. I don’t know how many times I watched Cupcake Wars on the Food Network and somebody mentioned White Chocolate Cream Cheese frosting, and my mouth watered just thinking about it. I finally made it happen, and it’s delicious!
As usual, I ran down the candy isle at the store “just to look”. I saw red, white, and blue M&M’s, and I had to get them. I knew full well that I’d be making some kind of 4th of July treat, and they were the perfect topping for these brownies.
These are the perfect dessert for your barbecue, picnic, or party. They’re so festive ad fun, with the taste to back it up and then some! This Fourth of July, these brownies could easily be more memorable than the fireworks.
