Servings: 12


1 box red velvet cake mix

16 oz. cream cheese

1 c. powdered sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 c. cream cheese frosting



  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.

  2. In a large bowl, prepare the red velvet cake batter according to the directions on the box.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla, stirring until smooth.

  4. Divide the red velvet cake batter evenly among a lined muffin tin, filling halfway. Spoon some of the cream cheese mixture onto the batter. Top with remaining batter until each one is about ¾ of the way full. Bake for 20 minutes, then cool.

  6. Enjoy!
