I never EVER thought I’d come across a dessert mash up that I loved more than slutty brownies. But the last few weeks I’ve been testing a Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Slutty Brownie recipe that seriously knocks it out of the park.
Have you guys had the new Red Velvet Oreos? I was skeptical at first but if you’ve tried them you know that they are legitimately delish. Clearly the only thing to do with a few boxes of Red Velvet Oreos is to make Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Slutty Brownies. My world basically paused for a few days while I hemmed and hawed over the recipes and perfected them and finally, we’re here! It’s a M&M Sugar Cookie Base, a middle layer of the Red Velvet Oreos and a final layer of red velvet cake. It’s hard to believe that I love these more than the original slutty brownies but it’s 100% true and I know you guys will love them!
Red Velvet Slutty Brownies
For the Red Velvet Layer
- 1/3 recipe Red Velvet Cake
For the Oreo Layer
- 30 Red Velvet Oreos
For the Cookie Layer
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2- teaspoon salt
- 1/2- teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2- teaspoon baking powder
- Half bag of Milk Chocolate M&Ms
For the Red Velvet Layer
- Make the Red Velvet according to the directions on the link above.
For the Cookies
- Cream together the butter and sugars in a mixer. Add the egg and vanilla, making sure to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. Add the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and mix on low until everything is incorporated. Add in the M&M’s and stir to combine. Set the dough aside.
- Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Line the bottom of a 9x9 baking pan with tin foil and then spray the tin foil with a layer of baking spray.
- Layer the cookie dough on the bottom of a 9x9 baking pan, pressing down to form the bottom of the slutty brownies.
- Layer as many Red Velvet oreos that will fit on top of the cookie dough. No need to overlap. One single layer will do.
- Pour 1/3 of the red velvet batter on top of the oreo layer and make sure it's evenly layers on top. (reserve the rest of the red velvet batter for another cake or cupcakes)
- Bake for 30-35 minutes. Test with a knife to see if the center is done. If the knife comes out clean, let the brownies rest before serving. If the knife comes out with batter still on it, allow the brownies to bake about 5 minutes more.
