Red Velvet Swirl Brownies

Servings 12 -16 brownies depending on size


  • 1 box brownie mix I love Ghiardelli Triple Fudge + ingredients on box
  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, prepare brownie mix according to manufacturer's instructions. Spread into the bottom of the 9x13 pan in a smooth, even layer. Set aside.
  • In another large bowl, combine red velvet cake mix, vegetable oil, egg and milk and mix until completely incorporated and smooth. Spoon onto brownie layer randomly and swirl very gently with a butter knife in different directions. I like to zig zag side to side then up and down. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean with a small amount of batter on it. This will ensure that your brownies will be fudgy. Allow brownies to cool completely before cutting into them.
  • Red Velvet Swirl Brownies will stay fresh for up to 3 days stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
