McCormick has done it again! Last year, they asked me to be a part of their Red Letter Day. This year, they asked if I wanted to be a part of their “So Many Delicious Ways To Say I Heart You” Day. Of course I said yes because I had fun doing it last year. Too bad Murray isn’t around to sit in the box.
Although he was around for the Super Bowl
After a long day of work, I came home to find this lovely red box on the back porch. I’m just glad FedEx found the house with my directions. If I don’t tell them where, usually it ends up at the neighbor’s. Last year they focused on crafts and baking. This year, their theme is I Heart You and made a Relationship Matrix where you pick a person and a relationship status, and that gives you a recipe to make.
Last year, I made red velvet cupcakes. This year I still wanted to make red velvet but in a different form. My two final picks were red velvet brownies or red velvet bonbons. Since the bonbons would take extra time to make, roll, chill, dip, etc. I opted for the brownies. Plus my relationship matrix chart says to give these to coworkers, and that’s what I was planning on doing since that’s a lot of brownies for one girl.
However, I was torn. Of course I wanted to use McCormick’s brownie recipe, but I did see some red velvet cheesecake brownies pop up in the blog world. My idea was to put both recipes together – use McCormick’s brownies for the base with Baking Bites cheesecake layer. I even used sprinkles on top.
They turned out to be cakey, which is understandable since it is based on red velvet cake. With that said, I thought they were a tad bit dry on their own BUT were perfect with a cup of coffee or tea.
