There’s just something about Red Velvet that screams “Valentine’s Day” I love Cake Mix Cookies, so I thought these Red Velvet Cake Mix Bars would be a fun variation. And of course who can resist something with M & Ms mixed in?
These bars don’t taste super cake-y, but rather more brownie like. In fact my kids kept asking for more “red brownies” – they really loved them!
They are easy to make with just a box of Red Velvet cake mix, an egg, a stick of softened butter and a splash of vanilla. Oh, and a bag of M & Ms – can’t forget those!
They bake up beautifully, just like brownies. And they were so yummy! They kept very well for over a week in the fridge. I just would let them sit out for an hour before eating to bring them to room temperature.
I took these to school and the teachers loved them. Wouldn’t this be a fabulous treat for your Valentine?
