Red Velvet Brownie Brittle

Red Velvet Brownie Brittle.  Yes, red velvet brownie brittle just like the Southern classic cake but in a thin and crispy form. Perfect for your sweetheart.
You saw correct, red velvet brownie brittle. When I think of red velvet I think of two holidays that makes it perfect to eat, Christmas and Valentines.
Since it is the New Year and your sweetie might still want to be on their resolution. Make these because they are thinner than a regular brownie.
But you still get the brownie taste with all the chocolate from the cocoa powder and white chocolate.
I first discovered brownie brittle years ago at the register and I had to try them. My favorite part of a batch of brownies is the crispy edge.
Ever since then I've tried every flavor that has come out. I have never seen a red velvet so I had to give it a go.
