Last night I picked up my Eats cookbook and decided I’d give one of the Valentine desserts a try. This one was so easy and only required 4 ingredients (gotta love that!). I ran to the store quickly and picked up a box of red velvet cake mix and gave it a try!
I loved how easy they were and my hubs loves how tasty they were so I thought I’d share it today!
1 box red velvet cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup M&Ms (I used Valentine ones) and a few for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 x 13 (I used an 8 x 8 so they are thicker) baking dish. Set aside.
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a mixing bowl with a spoon (batter will be thick). Stir in M&Ms.
Spread batter across the bottom of prepared pan and bake about 14 minutes (if you do an 8 x 8 dish, I baked for 24 minutes) or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
After you pull the warm brownies out of the oven, sprinkle a few extra M&Ms on top. Cut into squares and serve.
Of course, my pictures don’t do the recipe justice (compared to Shay’s – her pictures always look amazing!).
Let me know if you give it a try and what you think of it! And if you love how simple this recipe is – definitely grab a copy of Eats!

Seriously you are making me want to put the cookbook in my cart asap and now that I know they are simple recipes, I will. It needs to be easy for me ;)! Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
I love how simple Shay’s recipes are! I just saw that she has a new cookbook with crockpot recipes coming out late summer! I have a bunch of Christmas m&m’s leftover and might try this recipe today!
Those look so yummy! Can you send me some!? 🙂
