To continue this month’s theme of featuring recipes that use red velvet cake mix, I decided to make red velvet brownies. These brownies are super easy to make, but they do not taste like it.
If you want brownies that taste like they are straight from a bakery, then you have found them. Just a few easy steps, and have some of best brownies ever. Since they are red velvet, they are not overly chocolatey.
The frosting is amazing. Since I am not a huge fan of cream cheese (weird, I know), I love that this frosting uses a combination of butter, cream cheese, and white chocolate. It is silky and smooth, and a little on the softer side. Because of this, I recommend you chill the icing before spreading it, or add extra powdered sugar.
I hope you love these brownies! Happy Upcoming Valentine’s Day!
