Week 3 of the Holly Jolly Jewellery Giveaway and Delicious Christmasy Red Velvet Brownies!

Week 3 of the Holly Jolly Jewellery Giveaway starts today and I'd like to start by congratulating Kassandra Camponi on winning the 'Boho Love' Bracelet!  I will be having one last jewellery giveaway this week and instead of including a DIY for it, I have attached a recipe for some Christmasy Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies!

So, what can you win this week?  This week I'm giving away a beautiful, gold toned, metal hand stamped bracelet with the word 'LOVE' on it.  It would be a beautiful Christmas gift for a friend but I won't judge you if you keep it for yourself!  You can enter the contest 2 ways (to be entered a maximum of 2 times):
1.  Like my Facebook Post today on The Refurbished Ruby's Facebook Page announcing the start of Week 3 of the Holly Jolly Jewellery Giveaway
2.  Like my Instagram picture via Instagram featuring this bracelet

Now, on to the brownies!  I l-o-v-e brownies.  There's something so comforting about them.  They're also a hit at my house because my husband will actually eat them.  Generally he doesn't really like chocolate but chocolate brownies, he will devour.

A few weeks ago, I was looking for recipes of baked goodies that were red in colour when I came across this Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownie Recipe.  Red velvet cupcakes are one of my favourite types of cupcakes so naturally I was drawn to this recipe.  As a bonus, this recipe wasn't just a cheesecake recipe;  it was a brownie recipe with a cheesecake topping/icing so I knew I could justify making it since, being a brownie, my husband would want to eat it.

You can find the recipe here.  I made a little heart in the centre to fix the ugly markings I left on the top from checking if the brownie had been baked all the way through.  I like how the finished brownie looks so Christmasy with the red and white swirls.  Let me know how it turns out for you!  I'm sure it will be a winner all year around!

Have a nice weekend!
