Have often hoped to recreate my gramma Doris' Red Velvet swirl brownies but could not find the right cake mix based blend. This one seems about perfect so we'll see. While she would've never stooped to using canned condensed milk the entire can seemed like it yielded the proper consistency. (hey, I was young and mostly licked the spoons! lol)
