EASY AND DELICIOUS RED VELVET HEARTS

Still looking for a sweet treat to make for Valentine's Day?! These Red Velvet Hearts are not only delicious and festive but they're a cinch to make too.

– red velvet cake mix – egg – vegetable oil – half & half or milk – pure vanilla extract - cream cheese  - powdered sugar  - salt

Ingredients

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper, leave enough overhand for the sides. Set aside. Remove cream cheese from the refrigerator and let it sit out while you bake the hearts.

In a mixing bowl combine the cake mix, egg, vegetable oil, half & half and vanilla. Use a large spoon to mix everything together. Batter will be very thick and seem a little dry so be patient to incorporate all the ingredients, it may take a few minutes.

Step 2

Spoon the batter into the lined baking pan and use a spoon or spatula to evenly spread the batter out. Again, the batter is thick so be patient. Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. The batter may seem under-done in the middle but this is fine, it will set as it cools. Do not over bake. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Step 3

Once the red velvet "cake" has cooled completely, transfer it to a clean work surface by lifting up the sides of the parchment paper from the pan. Make sure to leave the parchment paper underneath the red velvet cake. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to punch out hearts and set them to the side.
