HeartBeet Brownies With Pink Frosting

50 Minutes • Servings: 12 Squares
These decadent fudgy brownies with their bright pink frosting are the perfect Valentine's Day treat. Made with red beets and the Dilettoso mix, Choc-o-lotta flavor, these healthy brownies are completely gluten-free, moist, chewy, and with a thick layer of tangy cream cheese frosting. You really can't taste the beets, but they add so much moisture, plus a hidden serving of veggies! Store frosted brownies in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Baked and cooled brownies (without frosting) can be frozen for up to 2 months. Thaw in the fridge.

What you need

  • 1 Cup Choc-o-lotta Dilettoso Mix
  • 2 Medium Red Beets, Pre-cooked
  • 2 Large Eggs, Room Temperature
  • 1/3 Cup Melted Butter or Oil of Choice (MCT Oil is a great alternative!)
  • 1/2 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • Cream Cheese Frosting: ¼ cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature, 4 ounces full-fat cream cheese cut into cubes, 1/4 cup monk fruit powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon beet powder (sub. with 3 tablespoons of beet juice).

How to do it

  1. PREHEAT the oven to 350F degrees (180C) and line an 8x8 inch (20x20 cm) pan with parchment paper. Alternatively, lightly grease the pan.
  2. BLEND on high speed, the pre-cooked beets, the melted butter, and the eggs, until smooth.
  3. ADD to a large bowl the Dilettoso Choc-o-lotta mix, then pour the wet mixture and combine.
  4. FOLD in the chocolate chips and give it a gentle stir.
  5. POUR the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes.
  6. ALLOW the brownies to cool in the pan.
  7. MAKE the Cream Cheese Frosting: In a medium bowl, beat the butter until smooth, then add in the chopped cream cheese and beat until smooth. Add in the powdered sugar along with the vanilla extract, and beet powder (or beet juice). Mix together starting with the mixer on a low speed.
  8. FROST the cooled brownies using a flat edge knife. Optionally, decorate with beet powder.
