Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Cake Mix Brownies  (adapted from


1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix (do NOT follow directions on back of the box.)

1/4 cup canola oil

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup milk

1-1 1/2 cups of Valentine’s M&M’s


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 9×13 baking dish.

Empty cake mix in large bowl.  Add beaten egg and oil.  Gradually add in milk.

The batter will be very dry, mix very well.  I added a couple more tablespoons of canola oil.   It will still be very thick, and not at all runny.

Fold in M&M’s.

Place in greased dish and pat batter down with your hands.

Place some additional M&M’s on top.

Bake for 20-25 minutes  or until batter comes out clean when inserted with a toothpick.
