Move over Red Velvet Oreos! Red Velvet Brookies are the new queen of all things Red Velvet! Seriously though, it’s hard to beat Red Velvet Brownie Batter topped with Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Ever since I first introduced Nutella Brookies on the blog in 2015, I keep thinking of other ways I can switch up the delicious brookie and turn it into a new and amazing recipe! Enter, Valentine’s Day, enter, recipe development for red & heart-shaped dishes, enter, red velvet brookies!

They’re sweet, chocolatey goodness in the perfect shade of red for Valentine’s Day (or pretty much any day you want a delicious treat!) I wrapped up some of these in cute little bags, covered in pink and red hearts, to give to friends so that I didn’t eat them all myself, because that totally would have happened!

Cut them into squares or cute little heart shapes, either way, I guarantee that you won’t be able to eat just one!

What to serve with brookies

Make this dessert a la mode with any of these no churn ice cream recipes. I recommend heating the brookies up for 30 seconds in the microwave first, so that the ice cream slightly melts on top of them. Yummy!!
