parchment paper Parchment Paper
measuring cups Measuring Cups

1

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan and line with parchment paper.

2

Melt 1 1/2 cups butter and 3/4 cup chocolate chips in a large heavy-bottom saucepan over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes, or until butter and chocolate are combined. Whisk in sugar until smooth.

3

Remove sugar mixture from heat and whisk in eggs. Fold in flour, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla and red food color, followed by 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Pour batter into 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

4

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with some crumbs clinging. Cool completely on a wire rack, about 2 hours. Cut cooled brownies into 12 squares. Flip brownies, smooth side up; set aside onto parchment lined baking sheet.

5

Make frosting by beating cream cheese with remaining butter until smooth. Beat in powdered sugar gradually until light and fluffy.

6

Pipe cream cheese icing evenly over brownies. Decorate with remaining chocolate chips.
