These are really delicious brownies. I adapted the brownie recipe from another recipe and added my own holiday pizzazz for our 4th of July celebration! Serve heated up or at room temperature. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, or as needed
  • ⅔ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons water

  • 3 drops red food coloring, or as desired
