Brownie Pie

Did I tell you my husband doesn’t like brownies? I know! Crazy!!! I don’t understand it. BUT that doesn’t stop me from making brownies. Or brownie pie! It just means I have to eat the entire pan, darn! This past Sunday, a family dinner quickly added up to 8 people and I knew I needed a dessert.

I already had pie crust in the refrigerator and the rest of the ingredient were in the cabinets, so I went ahead and made 2 of these. BUT only one was ate…DARN. So I’ve been slicing slivers out of the second one all week. Add some ice cream, whipped cream, strawberries, ooo..some caramel…Yes sirree!

This man I love…he loves me too. Good ol country boy loves this city girl. He may not understand this whole blog thing I have going on, but he supports me. Friday when I found out y’all had been pinning my recipes I of course had to tell him, then explain. And then he did something that made me realize once again why I’m marrying him…he suggested I make y’all a Valentine’s Day goodie. Duh Nicole!

So I got to researching, easy, kid friendly and can be portioned out and given away (I don’t need it here, ha). Came up with Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats. I looked online and found a bunch of other recipes and decided to take a little from here and there and give it a try.

Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats

3 tbsp. butter
1 10.5 oz. bag of mini marshmallows
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. boxed Red Velvet cake mix
6 c. Cocoa Krispies
White candy melts, melted

Melt the butter in a large pan, add in the marshmallows, vanilla and cake mix. Stir with a rubber spatula until melted and mixed throughly. Add in the krispies and stir stir stir. Make sure it’s throughly mixed and then pour into the pan you’d like to use, I’d used a 9×11 nonstick (PLEASE spray your pan with a nonstick spray. Let cool and set, pop those bright red suckers out.
