Red Velvet Brownies
Batter
1 package family size dark chocolate brownie mix
1 package yellow cake mix
1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
¾ cup melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1 ounce red food coloring

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl mix all wet ingredients including red coloring until well blended. Place both brownie and cake mix in a large bowl and whisk until mixed well, add chocolate chips. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until no lumps remain. Spread batter into a greased 8×11 glass baking dish. Bake for 50-58 minutes until edges are beginning to brown. Let brownies cool completely before frosting.

Frosting
1 8 ounce package cream cheese at room temperature
2 tablespoons butter at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups sugar

Using a hand mixer combine butter, cream cheese and vanilla and mix well. Add sugar slowly until all is combined. Frost cooled brownies.
