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!

    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.
