Truffled Red Velvet Brownies

These are definitely not your everyday brownies. In fact I think I can say these might be the best dessert I have ever come up with. These brownies have a chocolate truffle bottom, chewy red velvet middle and are topped with loads of chocolate chips. I was inspired to make these fudgey treats when I saw a picture online of a different kind of red velvet brownie involving cookies and frosting. The picture was so compelling I knew I had to make my own version. If you know me, you know how much I hate making frosting so I came up with one brownie recipe that works in two different ways and has a creamy, super chocolately truffled bottom layer. Better than frosting in my opinion!

Truffled Red Velvet Brownies
yields 12 brownies
2 cups almond milk
2/3 cup canola oil
1 tbl vegan sour cream, optional but recommended
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 cups organic cane sugar
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
10 oz dark chocolate chunks
3 tbl red food coloring
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325. Line and grease an 8x8 baking dish.
Whisk together the milk, oil, sour cream, vinegar, vanilla and almond extract in a bowl.
Add the sugar and stir to combine.
Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Whisk the batter just until smooth but try not to over mix.
Melt 10 oz of chocolate chunks and let cool for 5 minutes. Combine two cups of batter with the melted chocolate. The batter will be very thick. Spread the batter into the bottom of the baking dish.
Add the red food coloring to the remaining batter and pour over the chocolate layer.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean. Slightly under baking them will yield a really gooey, delicious brownie.
Directly out of the oven, pour the semi-sweet chocolate chips on top the of the brownies and let everything cool before cutting.
