1. Preheat oven to 350F.

4. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and red food coloring. Add in the chocolate mixture and stir until smooth.
Note: Batter should be red, if brighter red is desired, add additional 1/2 tsp food coloring.
5. Add flour and salt into the bowl and stir until everything is just combined and no streaks of dry ingredients remain.
6. Pour into prepared pan and spread into an even layer.

2. Drop in dollops onto prepared brownie batter.
