3 Gluten Free Red Velvet Brownies

Hey everyone! I hope you're all excited for the Christmas weekend!

Here's a seasonal colored dessert, red velvet brownies with a green colored whipped topping. Its based on a recipe I found here, but my first attempt of it I found too sweet. So this recipe tones down the sweetness a bit. I hope you all enjoy, and have a fun weekend with family and friends!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 16
1/2 cup room temperature butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 tbsp red food coloring
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup white rice flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup cold heavy cream
3 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tbsp green food coloring

Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a 8x8 square pan with oil.

In a medium bowl whip the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the vanilla, red food coloring, and whip in the eggs. Fold the flours and cocoa powder into the butter mix until well combined. Do not overmix.
Spread the batter into the pan, and bake for 30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let them cool completely.

Mix the sugar, green coloring, and heavy cream. Whip until soft peaks form. Cut the brownies into squares and top with the whipped cream. 

I hope you enjoy, and Happy Holidays!
