Today I have Lisa Lickel in my kitchen.
She is sharing her recipe for Velvet Bars. You can find her here here and
She writes “What if” stories with a twist of grace and is also the
author of Meander Scar, a special love story about finding home.
Very easy cheater recipe for those who aren’t into scratch baking or would rather spend time with family but would still love to wow them with a pretty holiday dessert.
9x13 pan size
Heat oven to 350 degrees
1 box red velvet cake mix
1 cup softened margarine
2 – 8 oz pkgs cream cheese (use light or fat-free; tastes good and less guilt)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sugar – may use powdered for a smoother whip
colored sprinkles for top
Mix dry cake mix, margarine and eggs together in a bowl; mixture will resemble a brownie mix. Spread with a buttered spatula in a greased 9 x 13 pan.
Beat cream cheese, sugar and eggs and vanilla until smooth; pour over batter.
Bake in 350 oven 45 minutes or so; don’t let cream cheese top burn.
Immediately spread your sprinkles – red colored sugar is pretty.
Cool, then cut into bars.
Store tightly wrapped in refrigerator.
Enjoy the holidays! Merry Christmas
