Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies
We’ve already discussed my love/hate relationship with cream cheese. We’ve also discussed my feelings on the use of boxed mixes. So, let’s skip the formalities and just declare that Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies are delicious. And they are red, which makes them perfect for Valentine’s Day. And they’re super quick and easy, which makes them perfect for completion by tomorrow.

Now, Betty Crocker calls these “Red Velvet Espresso and Cream Swirled Brownies,” but I choose to leave “espresso” out of the title, because I couldn’t taste it at all in these brownies. According to redhead math, the subtraction of “espresso” from the title allows me to insert the word “cheesecake.” Continue reading

Espresso Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookies

Espresso Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Valentines Day and Easter are my favorite food holidays. Why? Chocolate.

True, Thanksgiving is all about feasting (or being thankful, whatever), but there’s more savory than sweet there. Yes, Christmas has its endless supply of cookies, but there’s never enough with chocolate. And of course, there’s Halloween, for eating candy while half naked, but everyone takes the chocolate first and soon you’re left with lame Laffy Taffy and Nerds.

But not Valentine’s Day and Easter, oh no. These are the holidays that insist you give me chocolate and you give it to me now, in mass quantities. A stray conversation heart may sneak its way into your stash this week, but those are easily crushed. Continue reading

Dirty Slutty Brownies

Dirty Slutty Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Remember that slutty brownie recipe? Remember how I said the variations were endless on how to pair the cookie dough, cookie and brownies flavors? Well… I went there. I went to a dark and dirty place and I took that innocent maiden Little Debbie with me (although maybe she’s gone all Lindsay Lohan now that Hostess caved). If you are a chocolate fiend, if the words “too rich” are not part of your vocabulary, if you take your brownies darker than your coffee, then these are for you. I dub them: Dirty Slutty Brownies.

Warning: these are probably illegal in 20 states. And if not, they are most definitely the scourge of the American Diabetes Association, Weight Watchers, the National Dental Association and your ass. Continue reading

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
I’ll have you know, that I’ve now posted six consecutive recipes without pumpkin, which in the middle of fall is just plain rude. I am sorry. You know, we were just getting started and I didn’t want to be too needy with the pumpkin and force it on you, but as is the case with my life, I played it too cool and here we are, well into November without a pumpkin recipe. Fall is out there wondering “is she even interested in me anymore?” Oh Fall, of course I am! I just didn’t want to scare you off and risk early winter. Hug it out?

Eating Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies are as good as a hug. Like a hug for your stomach. I get requests for this recipe a lot, probably because it involves the three basic food groups: brownies, pumpkin and cheesecake. Okay, you’re right — there are way more than three basic food groups. Let’s not forget chocolate, ice cream, peanut butter and cake.  And it’s not so much a pyramid as a heptagon. Google it.

White Chocolate Brownies

White Chocolate Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Confession:  I did not make these because I thought they sounded particularly tasty. I don’t mean to be racist, but I don’t like white chocolate. I made these because a wonderful friend requested something white chocolate at the race track and I aim to please. After some searching of the interwebs, this recipe looked like a white chocolate winner I could pull off. Then, something quite fascinating happened at the end of this process… I wanted to eat the entire pan!

Slutty Brownies

Slutty Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
This post is rated R. It is Restricted to those over the age of 18 and those who are not on a diet. This is a filthy, obscene, graphic post. If you are sitting down and meet the requirements listed above, you may proceed… with  a glass of milk.

If you are on Pinterest, you are surely already aware of the Slutty Brownie. It has to be one of the most popular and widely circulated pins on the site, at least in the food category (I think partially because moms and grandmas get a thrill out of pinning something with the word “slutty” in it). The concept is simple: layer of cookie dough, layer of Oreos, topped with brownie batter. Uh, yeah, THAT just happened. Did you just do a double take? Knees get weak? Having funny feelings reminiscent of adolescence?  Don’t worry. It’s all natural. Continue reading
