Red velvet cake mix bars require five ingredients and five minutes to throw together. They're soft, chewy and all kinds of white chocolatey Perfect for Valentine's Day!
These red velvet cake mix bars may not be quite as colorful as my strawberry chocolate chip cake mix cookies or 4th of July cake mix cookies, but they are kid-friendly and require only five ingredients and five minutes to throw together. That makes them a total Valentine's Day win!
This batch didn't quite puff up as much as other cake mix bars and I'm thinking it's because the white chocolate chips I used were on the slightly larger size...and I didn't put in nearly enough chips. Chocolate chips are like cheese in a recipe—you should always add more than it calls for.
You could totally top these red velvet cake mix bars with cream cheese frosting, but if you're feeding them to kids, you may want to skip this step to help reign in the mess. I'm all about minimizing collateral damage when it comes to kids eating desserts (or drinking red punch).
