M&M Red Velvet Brownies With Cream Cheese Recipe
When it comes to desserts, I am first in line! I love just about anything sweet. Give me cake, brownies, ice cream, cheesecake, cookies or pie. I love them all.
My favorite flavor has always been red velvet. It was no surprise that my kids are obsessed with anything red velvet too. The rich dark red color and the decadently rich cocoa flavor are more than you can resist!
Easy To Make and Hard To Put Down
If you do not want to or have the time to make these brownies from scratch, you can substitute a red velvet brownie mix. You can also take a chocolate brownie mix and add the red food coloring and M&M’s.
When it comes to the M&M’s you choose to put in this M&M Red Velvet Brownies With Cream Cheese Recipe, any will work. I chose the Valentine’s Day colored variety that was available at Walmart when I made this recipe.
These brownies are so dang yummy, you will see them disappear as if by magic! If you want to make this M&M Red Velvet Brownies With Cream Cheese Recipe for the kid’s classroom, be sure to make extras. If you don’t, people may be fighting over the last one lol!
These brownies are perfect with a glass of cold milk. They are the perfect dessert for the kids after you have eaten my Kid Friendly Skinny Meatloaf Muffins With Mashed Potatoes! This is an easy dinner recipe my kids absolutely love!
