Turns out that there are three types of people in the world.
The first type are the true foodie people. They would not even dream of eating something made from a box mix. Hamburger Helper? Puh-lease.
The second type? Well, homemade brownies just aren't their thing. They prefer the boxed version. Why mess with perfection, right? Also, reading a recipe is hard.
And the third type of person is, well, me. I make my own ricotta cheese for pasta dishes. I sometimes make my own tortillas on taco night. I make biscuits from scratch. Then I turn around and eat Stove Top Stuffing every chance I get and buy packages of refrigerated cookie dough for emergency situations.
Basically, I'm an enigma wrapped in a homemade croissant topped with a slice of Spam. Okay, no. Even I would not purchase or eat Spam. A girl has to have some standards.
Anyway, I hope you're the third type of person too. We can be friends. Let's bond over these Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies.
Sure, I could have made the brownies from scratch, but I wanted a quick treat that wouldn't interrupt my Pretty Little Liars television time. Bonus points: This treat is perfect for Valentine's Day! It's a gift for you because it's easy and a gift for your loved ones, because, well, it's Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies.
