1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp food coloring (red)
4 oz cream cheese (for frosting)
1/4 cup butter (for frosting)
2 cup powdered sugar (for frosting)
1 tsp vanilla (for frosting)
2 tbsp milk (as needed, for frosting)

Preheat oven to 350.

Butter and flour an 8 x 8 cake pan.

In a small bowl, combine cocoa powder, red food coloring, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to create a paste.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then add remaining teaspoon of vanilla. With the mixer on medium speed, add in cocoa powder mixture. Beat until batter is completely red. (If at this time your batter is NOT red, you can add a little more food coloring if desired. Color will depend on brand.) Add flour and salt, mixing until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Spread in the 8 x 8 pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting: Start with your ingredients at room temperature. Beat the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla. Beat in powdered sugar, adding milk as needed to reach a spreadable consistency.
