Totally homemade red velvet cookie bars. What could be better?
Preheat the oven to 190 C. Pull out a 9×11 pan and grease it. Then line it with parchment paper and set it aside.
Sift the flours, cocoa powder and bicarb together into a medium sized bowl and then add your chopped chocolate. Stir to combine and then leave to one side.
Place the butter and sugars into a large bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer and beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add in the egg, vanilla extract and vinegar. Mix until well combined and smooth, about 1 minute on medium-high speed. Add in the red food colouring, little by little, mixing between, until you’re happy with the colour. Add in the flour mix and fold it in on a low speed until combined. The dough will be stiff.
Place the dough into the prepared pan and smooth out the top with a spatula or wooden spoon. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes (mine took 20 minutes exactly). When done it will be slightly risen and the top will look slightly crisp and an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Leave in the pan to cool for at least 30 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool slice into 9-12 bars depending on how big you want them.
Bars will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for 4-5 days.
