HOW TO MAKE RED VELVET BROWNIES WITH WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS: STEP BY STEP
Here are some quick visual instructions. Remember that full instructions with exact ingredients will be in the recipe card below!
Step 1: Stir together brownie mix, eggs and vegetable oil. Batter will be very thick!
Step 2: Spread batter evenly into an 8×8 baking pan.
Step 3: Sprinkle on white chocolate chips.
Step 4: Bake at 350°F for 18-22 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or ALMOST clean.
RECIPE TIPS & TRICKS
- Try to avoid overcooking your brownies. If they cook too long, they get dry and more “cake like” vs. chewy, like other brownies. Begin checking them at around the 15-18 minute mark. When a toothpick comes out ALMOST clean, take them out. They will continue to cook when they come out of the oven.
- To spread brownies into the pan, just pour the brownie mix into the middle of your 8×8 pan. Then take a rubber spatula (or butter knife) sprayed with cooking spray and gently spread the batter into an even layer.
- To cut brownies, use a PLASTIC KNIFE! Yep! That’s right! A plastic knife cuts your brownies into nice, clean squares.
- Storage: Store brownies in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
- Freezing: These brownies can be frozen! Cool completely, then transfer to a zip top freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. To thaw, place on the counter for a few hours or overnight.
ADDITIONS AND SUBSTITUTIONS
- A cream cheese frosting like this one is also AMAZING to top these brownies with instead of the white chocolate chips.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
These brownies are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out ALMOST clean. Resist the urge to over bake them, as over baking leads to more cake-like brownies. Begin checking them at about the 15-20 minute mark.
Substituting butter for the oil will yield more cake-like brownies vs. the chewy, moist brownies you are looking for! Oil is great for keeping these brownies nice and moist.
