More and more I find myself playing around with cake mixes, not only because I’m heartened by how many of you I am getting into the kitchen by posting these recipes, but I’ve also realized how much fun they can be! As much as I love a good complex dessert, there is a time and a place for a fast and dirty dessert.
I’ve made a few different versions of these cake bars lately and the first one I want to introduce you to is my Red Velvet Cake Bars. I didn’t want to only make a cake bar, that’s boring, I wanted to give it a ooey, gooey filling as well!
Nothing pairs up with Red Velvet like cream cheese does, the tart and sweet flavors of both compliment each other so perfectly.
Just look at that gorgeous filling!
These are a mere five ingredients and take minutes to prep! Winner winner dessert for dinner! Or is it just me that wants to eat dessert for dinner? Come on, there’s a glass of milk involved. That means it’s dinner!
Keep these beauties in your back pocket for when you need a really fast and delicious dessert! The kids and Mike loved them, of course, and even I had to admit that for cake mix, they were pretty darn good!
Happy Baking Everyone!
