Red Velvet Brownie Cookies

Red Velvet Brownie Cookies

I’m going to say something I never imagined I’d say.  I’m chocolate-ed out.  I baked so much today, that I couldn’t even eat one single mini chip.  I guess there really is a first time for everything.

I’ve been baking daily since…..well, lets just say everyday for a long time!  I keep making things that weren’t planned.  See back in January, I made a list of Christmas cookies that I wanted to make (yes, I said January.  I like to plan ahead).  It was a short list.  I thought I’d keep it simple.  But, I never keep things simple.  Besides, back in January, I wasn’t as addicted to Pinterest!  So here I am making all sorts of extra goodies.   Thankfully I have a few freezers, because, realistically, we aren’t eating all this stuff.  Guess what teachers are getting this year?

So, back to my anti chocolate taste buds.    I’m pleased to report that by the time dinner  was over,  I was able to sample these totally amazing Red Velvet Brownie Cookies!  I wasn’t even going to make these cookies.  But, what’s Christmas without Red Velvet??  That would be like Easter without Peeps!  So I thought I’d combine Red Velvet and my favorite chocolate cookie-the brownie cookie.  You know what happened?  The best cookie EVER, thats what happened!  These red velvet brownie cookies are so rich and full of chocolate.  They are incredibly moist too.  Biting into these cookies is  just like biting into a very fudgy brownie.   And of course they are festively red and oh so velvety!   I already know these will be going on my must make cookie list for 2013!   As I said, I like to plan ahead!

  1. Ugh, Pinterest. I LOVE it because it’s so addicting and inspiring, but hate it for the exact same reason. I had a pretty modest 5-6 item list of things I wanted to make for neighbors and coworkers, and SOMEHOW over the week it turned into like, 15. I mean, seriously. Pinterest, I think we need to break up.

    However, now I’m moving on and want these cookies. And want to make them and eat them.

    • See, I’m so glad I’m it the only one who goes nuts this time of year!

      • I cant wait to try this recipe..but does the “t” stand for teaspoon or tablespoon??

        • Yes, the “t” stands for teaspoon.

  2. These look fantastic, Tanya, and I’m sure glad your becoming “chocolate-ed out” didn’t prevent you from posting this recipe. Like The Rebel before me, I’ve pinned this for future baking. Unlike The Rebel before me, I’m keeping all of these cookies for myself. Let the neighbors bake their own! :)

    • These are too good for me to share. I whisked them into the freezer for me to eat later!

  3. These Red Velvet Brownies look yummy. Oh my I love your gingerbread village, so adorable!
    Merry Christmas,

  4. I’ve already baked these three times and am baking them again tonight. They were a huge hit at Thanksgivikkah and afterwards. Thank you!

    • I’m so glad!!! Thank you Andrea for sharing (and of course for trying them in the first place!)
