Red Velvet Brownies

  I'm going to be completely honest here and say that I'm not usually a huge fan of brownies.  But these are so good!  Like melt in your mouth, perfect to dunk in almond milk good.

They are simple and quick to make, too!  I recommend using LorAnn's Red Velvet Bakery Emulsion to get that red velvet flavor (and color!)  It helps create that nice light, sweet, red velvet flavor without you having to worry about mixing vinegar with buttermilk and all that jazz.  (And another thing I love about LorAnn's emulsions - they're all gluten free!)   

  These brownies are the perfect dessert to make for your loved one.  The hubs loves brownies and said these are one of the best he's ever had.  So I urge you to share the love.  This recipe is too good to keep to myself - or yourself!  

  Happy early Valentine's Day!
