OOEY GOOEY Red Velvet Squares

There are many variations of Ooey Gooey butter cakes out there. There is a version for chocolate gooey butter cakes, lemon gooey butter cake, and even Pumpkin gooey butter cake, which is a recipe I also posted. https://chamoritamommaskitchen.com/2013/10/12/mmmm-pumpkin-gooey-butter-cake/ So, in following that theme, I figure why not take those same ingredients and change out the cake mix and make Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cake? Well, here it is…..

Pour the cream cheese mixture over cake layer in pan.  Bake for 45 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE CUTTING!

Make sure to use a pan with sides that are at least 2-inches.  I found this out the hard way.....

I suggest cutting them into 1 1/2-inch squares and placing them into cupcake liners for presentation.  These are really rich, so I do not suggest cutting them too big.   Sprinkle with powdered sugar, for garnish!  ENJOY!
