  • 1 box blue velvet cake mix
  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Cup oil

cream cheese frosting:

  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Cups powdered sugar

Instructions

brownies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix blue cake mix with 1 egg, 1/3 Cup milk and 1/4 Cup oil until combined, should resemble cookie dough. Mix red cake mix with 1 egg, 1/3 Cup milk and 1/4 Cup oil until combined, should resemble cookie dough.

Brownie should lift off with cutter, carefully place brownie on wired rack or surface of you choice until ready to frost.

cream cheese frosting:

Aren’t they just so cute?! They would be perfect at your 4th of July cookout! Or, anytime really! You could even mix up the colors if you wanted. There are so many different cake mixed out there now, or color a white cake mix to match your teams colors!

They are rich if you eat more than one, a big glass of milk pairs perfectly!

I’d like to add a little tip about the blue velvet brownies. For some reason, this mix wasn’t as easy to spread as the red velvet was. So, I took a spatula, sprayed it with cooking spray and use that to form the dough, it was very easy after that!

  1. These look sooooo yummy! and beautiful! Thank you for the recipe and instructions! You did a great job! We would love it if you linked up with our party this week!

  2. I was thinking about adding a thin glaze and topping with patriotic sprinkles. Do you think it would make the brownies mushy?

  3. Made these this weekend and they were a huge hit. Didn’t have red velvet cake so I used a white cake mix and used red food coloring. Still very yummy. The kids enjoyed eating the scraps from the star cut outs almost as much as the cookies. Will definitely be making again the 4 th.
