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

1 egg

1/2c butter

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 😉

This has got to be one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever shared with you!  AND, I’ve included a recipe for you to print out – just right click and save to your computer 🙂  What holiday or celebration do you have coming up that you can make them for?  Feel free to PIN it for later and share it with your friends!
