When I posted a picture of the batter, several of you commented that you were drooling and wanted the recipe! Well, wipe up that drool and bust out your baking pans, because here it is!
The recipe calls for six simple ingredients:
- 1 egg
- 3/4 c. melted butter
- 1/2 c. water
- 1 box red velvet cake mix
- 1 c. chocolate chips (optional)
- cream cheese frosting
Mix the first three ingredients before stirring in the red velvet cake mix and folding in the chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into a baking pan sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake at 325 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes. Stick a knife in the middle of the brownies to test for doneness. If the knife comes back without any brownie residue, you’ve got yourself some ready-to-eat brownies.
Now comes the hard part:
Allow the brownies to cool before frosting them with the cream cheese frosting.
These brownies were really easy to make and received rave reviews from everyone at work.
Making brownies from a box mix has saved me numerous times when I’ve needed to bring a homemade dessert to a party or event. This recipe was a neat twist on brownies made from a box mix, I’ll be keepin’ it on hand for the future.
