Red Velvet Cake Brownies

You know it's been a while since you blogged when you upload pictures from your camera and can't remember what recipes you used for them :/ Oops! It's been a busy week in our house and the cooking has been a bit scattered = we've eaten lots of leftovers this week :)
Hubby and I are going to a Labor Day picnic at a parishioner's house this afternoon, and I didn't want to arrive empty handed. I was quite tired last night, so I wanted to make something that required very little brain power. These were super easy - just mix everything together, dump into the pan, and bake. Thanks to Julie for the inspiration!
Red Velvet Cake Brownies - recipe from Peanut Butter Fingers
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (Julie says they're optional - I say go big or go home :) )
  • cream cheese frosting (I didn't feel like frosting them, but go for it if you wish. They're just as tasty without.)
Directions: 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 toothpick in the middle of the brownies to test for doneness - they're ready when the toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before frosting, if desired.
That is some serious crumb action there. Come to mama.
Hellooo my pretties.
And of course some Sunday morning jammy couture:
(Yes, it is awkward to take pictures of yourself in your pajamas.) These are pink sleep shorts (I call them boxers because, well, they look like boxers! lol) from Target and I have had them forever and a day. Great when it's humid out!


  1. Those look really it when a sweet can be good frosted or not! I'm making a couple of sweet things this weekend. I'm TRYING to do more baking since it doesn't come natural to me...good to flex those cooking muscles!

  2. I don't bake often, but this looks like something I could handle. Love the boxers. :)

  3. I believe any time you can put baking chips in something it SHOULD be done! I live in target jammies! You can't beat 8 dollar pajamas, I don't care who you are.

  4. Target jammies rock. I sometimes wear mine all weekend :) Best baking outfit! These brownies look awesome. I've only seen red velvet in cake before. In brownies sounds wonderful!

  5. Isn't it funny the things we take pictures of as bloggers? Like me putting deodorant on for my recent post. Oh boy! Makes it fun though. :)

    You had me drooling at red velvet...

  6. hey, I gave you an award today on my blog here.

  7. Lol. Love the jammies!
    And those brownies look great. Like evil Southern goodness.

  8. Haha totally...they wouldn't be so good if they weren't evil ;)
