Red velvet has become super popular in the last few years – the red color makes it perfect for Valentine’s Day!
People limit themselves by just using cake mix to make cake ... but there is so much more you can do. These Red Velvet Heart Brownies are a great example.
Yes, you can use cake mix to make brownies. Think of the possibilities!
You can make these in a variety of sizes to please your one and only valentine – or to help you find one!
To make the brownies:
Pour the cake mix into a large bowl.
Add the egg.
Add the vegetable oil.
Add the water.
Mix all the ingredients together. Make sure you get everything mixed together well. It will be very thick.
Spread the brownies into a sprayed 9x13-inch pan. This can be a bit tricky as the batter is thick and sticky. Wet the spatula a little with water to help it spread better.
Bake at 350ºF for 20 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
Take a heart-shaped cookie cutter and cut hearts out of brownies. If doing large hearts you'll get 6 hearts, medium 10, and small 12.
Place frosting into a piping bag (or you can just spread with a knife).
Turn half the hearts over and pipe frosting onto the turned over hearts.
Place the other heart brownies on top of the frosted heart. Repeat for all the hearts.
Happy Valentine's Day!
