Red Velvet Brownie Bites With Cream Cheese Frosting

Preparation time: 25mins | Baking time : 35mins | Yield: 50 brownie bites
You Need:
For the red velvet brownies
•1/2 cup unsalted butter
•3 oz./85gm bittersweet chocolate chopped
•1-1/2 cups / 230gm powdered sugar
•3 large eggs
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•1/4 tsp salt * see notes
•1 oz./30ml liquid red food colour
•1 cup /115gm all purpose flour (maida)
•1/2 tsp baking powder
Additional items
•9"x9" square baking tin
•two strips of aluminium foil 9"x16" each
•oil spray or oil to grease the tin
Cream Cheese Frosting
•8 oz. /227gm cream cheese at room temperature
•4 tbsp butter at room temperature
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•1-1/2 cups /230gm sifted powdered sugar
•silver dragee, edible sparkles/sprinkles - optional - I did not use as I had run out of it.

Preparing the brownies:
        Preheat oven to 165 degrees C/ 325 degrees F. Place a foil piece in the baking tin leaving the extra foil hanging on two sides. Repeat with the other sheet in the opposite direction thus lining the pan completely. Spray/brush oil along the surface. Sift the flour and baking powder twice & keep aside.
        Melt the butter and chocolate in a double boiler or in a heavy bottomed saucepan on a slow heat until the chocolate is melted. Remove and whisk well to avoid any lumps.
        Whisk in the sugar and one egg at a time. Stir in the vanilla, salt and food colour. Add the sifted flour and fold. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 30-35 mins till the surface is puffed and dry and the skewer inserted comes out a bit moist. Remove the cake tin and cool completely on a wire rack
Preparing the frosting
Beat the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and mix. Add the sifted powdered sugar and blend well.
        Lift the brownies out of the pan with the help of the foil. Place on a cutting board and peel away the foil from the sides. Spread the frosting evenly using a spatula. Decorate with sprinkles if desired. Cut into bites of 1-1/4"x1-1/4". Wipe the knife after each slice to achieve clean cuts
