Green Velvet Brownies for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Paddy’s Day is around the corner. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with these super yummy Green Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting. What are Green Velvet Brownies? They are basically Red Velvet Brownies that are green instead of red! They might look a little weird, but they taste AMAZING! I am not really a sweets person, but I ate WAY too many of these brownies. The frosting is incredible and the brownie is one of the best I’ve ever eaten. It is a little fudgy and a little cakey – the best of both worlds.

How to Make Brownies from Scratch

These Green Velvet Brownies are SUPER easy to make. Start with melting some chocolate chips and butter. Let the chocolate cool slightly and then add sugar. Next, whisk in eggs. Finally, add flour, baking soda, vanilla, and green food coloring. Pour the batter into a foil-lined 9-inch square baking pan and pop in the oven.

Let the brownies cool and then make the cream cheese frosting. The frosting is dangerously easy to make. Simply mix together cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Spread the frosting over the brownies and enjoy.

I suggest lining your baking pan with foil or parchment paper. This will make it easier to get the brownies out of the pan. You can make these brownies a day in advance and store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve. I sprinkled the brownies with some green and white sprinkles to make them more festive!

Ingredients:

Brownies

  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (1-oz) bottle green food coloring
  • tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • tsp salt

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 Tbsp butter, softened
  • cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line bottom and sides of a 9-inch square pan with aluminum foil, allowing 2 to 3 inches to extend over sides; lightly grease foil.
  • Microwave chocolate chips and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring at 30-second intervals. 
  • Whisk in sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking just until blended after each addition. Gently stir in flour, green food coloring, baking powder, vanilla, and salt. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 44 to 48 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool completely on a wire rack (about 2 hours).
  • For the frosting: Beat cream cheese and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar and salt, beating until blended. Stir in vanilla.
  • Lift brownies from pan, using foil sides as handles; gently remove foil. Spread Cream Cheese Frosting on top of brownies, and cut into 16 squares. Garnish, if desired.
