Red Velvet Brownies

Last week I was attempting to create a delicious Red Velvet Mug cake to share with you guys.

Red Velvet Brownies

You see, I was following my recipe for the 2 ingredient Mug Cake by using Red Velvet Cake mix and Angel Food Cake mix. But I wanted to make it a little more rich so I threw some brownie mix in there too. It didn’t turn out exactly as I wanted so I scraped that idea.

Now I had three open boxes of mixes on my counter. So I decided to try making a Red Velvet Angel Food Cake…


All that was left now was a little bit of Red Velvet Cake mix and some Brownie Mix. So I combined the two and made these tasty Red Velvet Brownies.

I really liked the way these brownies turned out.

They were a little on the fluffier side, but still rich in texture. The red velvet cake mix add a touch more sweetness to the brownie which I felt like was the perfect combination.

To make these cute little brownies a little more Valentine’s-ish I cut out little paper hearts, placed the heart on the brownie and sprinkled some powdered sugar on top. Then remove the paper heart and it makes for a pretty presentation.
