Red Velvet Chocolate-Swirled Brownie Bars Recipe

Posted on

These easy, no-mixer brownie bars are in between a bar and a brownie. Not supremely fudgy to give them true brownie status, but much fudgier and richer than your typical bar, and not cakey. They’re smooth, rich, dense, and supremely moist. Use whatever kind of food coloring you like; you’ll need lots of it in order to dye the chocolaty batter red. They’re squishy soft in the interior, with slightly firmer and chewier edges. The chocolate swirls add a nice burst of chocolate, without being overly chocolaty in order to stay true to red velvet. They’re buttery, velvety soft, and perfect for Valentine’s Day or Christmas!


1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
1 large egg
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
heaping 1/4 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
2 vials red food coloring, or as needed
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
pinch salt, optional and to taste
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
