Last weekend, we hosted a couples game night at our house. We asked all of the guests to bring a dish and their drink of choice. With a baby and with work being really busy, I didn't have time to plan a typical over the top party that I usually throw. I decided to "sign-up" for dessert. Desserts are always my choice because they are simple and usually a favorite. I had already made regular brownies and rice krispie treats but needed one more dessert for my 3-tier serving dish. When I realized this, it was only 3 hours away from party time. I knew I had tons of red velvet cake mixes in the pantry, so I searched for a recipe I could make with it. I didn't want a cupcake or cake, so I decided on brownies!
Results: I liked these, didn't love them. I thought they were a bit cake like. But, hubs LOVED them. And a lot of the guests at the party said they were good. Hubs did tell me that the chocolate chips made it. He said he had one without a lot of chocolate chips and it was so so, but the one he had with loads of chips was amazing. Next time I make them, I'll add more chips. Another variation which would put these over the top is adding cream cheese icing! The recipe does have icing with it, but I left it out because I wanted to stack the brownies on a plate. Enjoy!
