Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Buttercream

Ingredients

    3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 oz red food coloring (this is one small bottle or a scant 2 tbsp)
    2 tsp pure vanilla extract, divided
    1/2 cup (8 tbsp) unsalted butter, at room temperature
    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    2 large eggs, at room temperature
    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 tsp salt
    For the white chocolate buttercream frosting:
    1/2 cup (8 tbsp) unsalted butter, at room temperature
    2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    1 tsp pure vanilla extract
    4 oz good-quality white chocolate (not chips), melted - I recommend Callebaut
    1 - 2 tbsp heavy cream

Directions

To make the frosting:
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter until soft and fluffy then beat in the vanilla.  With the mixer on low speed, slowly add in powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time; allow the sugar to mix in before adding the next 1/2 cup. Once all of the sugar has been added, beat on medium speed for 30 seconds and scrape down the sides of the bowl.  Add in the melted white chocolate and beat on medium speed until incorporated.  With the mixer on low, add in heavy cream 1 tbsp at a time and beat at medium speed until the frosting has reached your desired consistency.
