Don’t you just love when a recipe comes along that is easy and DELICIOUS! This simple recipe takes a simple cake box mix and is transformed into an amazing brownie!!! I used a simple heart cookie cutter for these and made them for Valentine’s Day but you could easily mix it up and use different shaped cutters for different holidays! How about a “STAR” for the 4th of July? Or a “CANDY CANE” for Christmas? Or maybe a “BALLOON” for a birthday party?
Here’s what you need:
1 box red velvet cake mix
1t vanilla – this is my homemade vanilla extract – seriously HEAVENLY!
1 1/2c cups of M&M’s
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×11 baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
Mix cake mix, egg, butter, and vanilla until blended. Fold in 1/2 of the M&M’s. Press batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with remaining M&M’s. Bake for 35-40 min until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Then comes the FUN part! After the brownies have cooled, but them into squares or be fancy and use a cookie cutter – that way you can eat all the leftover edges, cause that’s what I do 😉
