Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla until creamy and smooth. Add in the red food coloring.
  4. Slowly, add in the dry mixture into the wet and mix until well blended.
  5. Lay aluminum foil or parchment paper down in a 9x13 baking pan. Gently push the red velvet mixture into the pan, working your way from the center out until it is entirely covered. This may take a little bit of time.
  6. Bake the crust for 8-10 minutes, just as it begins to set. Remove.
  7. Top the crust with the coconut, semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and the sweetened condensed milk.
  8. Top with pecans and place in the oven for an additional 23-25 minutes until slightly brown along the edges.
