You probably know by now that I just love an easy recipe, especially if that recipe has a different spin on a tried and true favorite. Well, we love brownies. It is easy to say that brownies are our go-to dessert, and since my oldest son just loves red velvet cake, this Red Velvet Brownies Recipe is a no-brainer.

This recipe starts simply enough with a red velvet cake mix. Preheat the oven to 350°F. I poured the cake mix into a medium sized mixing bowl. Next, I added eggs, vegetable oil, and water. I mixed them together thoroughly with a fork.
Now, I prepared a standard 8×8 or 9×9 pan with cooking spray or parchment paper, if you prefer. I poured the mixture into the prepared pan as evenly as possible. The red velvet brownies baked at 350°F for about 30 minutes or until a fork inserted about an inch from the side of the pan comes out with crumbs, but not doughy.
Once the brownies were out of the oven, I set them aside to cool then I went about preparing the glaze. I simply used a basic glaze for my brownies with powdered sugar and a tiny bit of water. Of course, milk or juice can substitute for the water. A bit of flavored extracts can also add a bit of flavor. However, I kept my glaze simple because I wanted the red velvet to be the star of the show.

It just couldn’t be any easier, right? I could also substitute a cream cheese frosting for the glaze for an even more decadent treat. Hmmm!
