Red Velvet Brownies

I made these for Valentine's day. I was obviously going with a red theme and figured that red velvet brownies were worth a shot. They turned out amazing and I was even told they were "bloody good!"

Linking up with Buns In My Oven because sharing is caring!

    Red Velvet Brownies
    1 stick of butter
    1 1/8 c sugar
    2 eggs
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 tbs vanilla extract
    1 box red velvet cake mix

    • Preheat oven to 350*
    • Beat the eggs, salt, baking powder, and vanilla until smooth.
    • In a separate bowl microwave to melt the butter, add the sugar, and stir. Microwave a little longer until hot. It should become shiny as you stir. Heat once more - this will create a shiny top crust on the brownies.
    • Add the hot butter/sugar mix to the chocolate concoction and stir until smooth.
    • Mix in the red velvet cake mix in 1/2 cup increments.
    • Bake 35-45min.
    I used an 8x8 brownie pan, but will probably try out the larger pan next time.

    Cream Cheese Icing
    4 oz cream cheese
    1 tbs vanilla
    2 c powdered sugar
    • Mix all ingredients together.
    • Ice once brownies are cool.
