Red Velvet Cake Mix Brownies

So this weekend my husband and I were in the mood for something sweet.  I happened to see these Red  Velvet brownies over at Tater Tots and Jello and decided to try them.  They looked so easy and delicious and they are perfect for the upcoming Valentine's Day. 

I never made brownies using a cake mix, but these are AMAZING.  So chewy and perfectly sweet.  

Red Velvet Cake Mix Brownies Recipe

Makes one 8×8 pan of brownies
1 box of Duncan Hines Signature Red Velvet Cake Mix (18.25 oz)
1 cup (2 sticks) of melted butter
1 whole egg, plus two egg yolks
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup of water
Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and spray 8×8 clear glass baking pan with non stick spray. Use parchment paper to line pan so brownies can easily be removed later and cut into squares.
Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on low just until combined.
Pour brownie batter into parchment paper lined pan and smooth top.
Bake at 325 for 35-40 minutes. Take care not to over bake.
Let brownies cool and cover, then refrigerate overnight or pop in the freezer for an hour or two.
Once brownies are chilled, remove from pan and cut into squares using a serrated knife.
Dust brownie squares with powdered sugar and try to eat just one.
