Red Velvet Brownies

  • Pour cake mix in a large bowl and mix in the oil and egg using mixer. Then add the milk slowly just until the batter is combined. The batter will be very thick.
  • Drop batter in prepared pan and spread out using a spoon or use your finger tips and press down evenly and bake for 24-26 minutes.
  • Let cool for at least 60 minutes before preparing to serve. The gooey center needs to set to get that perfect, decadent brownie texture.

Tuxedo Chocolate Satin Frosting

  • In another bowl, cream butter with mixer, then add milk and vanilla.

  • Frost brownies, then sprinkle with good quality dark chocolate bits.
  • Place brownies in refrigerator, covered until ready to cut and serve.
  • Store remaining brownies in airtight container in refrigerator.
