Love red velvet cupcakes? They’ve seemed to take over the cupcake and baking world recently, but these brownies are a twist on the popular American cupcakes and taste just as good. They’re made with melted butter and brown sugar to give a proper gooey texture. The red velvet colouring is given a great contrast with white chocolate chips sprinkles throughout the mix and will definitely wow guests with their striking colour.
