Recipes: Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies & Red Velvet Brownie Bars

This holiday season, I am looking forward to creating all kinds of peppermint treats - as you can probably tell from my holiday Pinterest boards

In addition to those goodies, I have a couple of other recipes that I know I will throw into the mix as well, and I thought I would share them with you today: my favorite cake mix cookie recipe as well as a super easy way to make red velvet brownie bars

First up, I love these Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies~ They are delicious!
Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies


1 Box of Yellow Cake Mix
1/2 Cup of Butter
2 Eggs
1 Cup of Chocolate Chip (In our house, these means 1 full bag of chocolate chips.)

Grease up your pan and then bake these little gems for about 10 minutes on 350 degrees. 

**You can add peanut butter to these babies, but be sure to add lots of peanut butter! Last year, I tried a 1/2 cup of peanut butter in a batch, and you couldn't even tell they were supposed to be Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, so I would go with three cups....just kidding....kind of.**

Next up, these gorgeous beauties: Red Velvet Brownie Bars
Recipe for Red Velvet Brownie Bars


1 Box of Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 Tablespoons of Water
1/2 Cup of Oil
2 Eggs
1 Cup of White Baking Chips (Once again, I definitely use more than that!)

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
I use a 9 x 14 pan - The batter spread out thin, but then bakes perfectly. 
If you want them to be thicker, just use a smaller pan. 

*You could add nuts to these babies, but that's not really my thing. If you like nuts in your brownies, go wild!*

As you've probably figured out, I like sweet and simple recipes - I doubt you will find me sharing many recipes that have more than just a few ingredients. Those Strawberry Hand Pies that I shared with you this summer just about sent me over the edge. They were delicious, but I am still recovering.
