I left the page up on my computer because I was trying to decide what dessert to make and the hubs saw the photo and said MAKE THAT!
Here is my version, I tweaked the recipe just a tad bit from Sweet Peas Kitchen because I LOVE chocolate and wanted them a bit more chocolatey.
Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies
- 1/2 cup butter (I used salted-that's all I had)
- 1/2 bag of dark chocolate morsels (about 5 oz)
- 1 cup Sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1tsp vanilla
- 2 tsp red food coloring
- 2/3 cup flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 8 oz Cream Cheese Softened
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup sugar
Preheat Oven to 350. Prepare an 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper-greased.
Brownie Prep: Melt Butter & Dark Chocolate in Small Bowl in Microwave. Stir until smooth and set aside.
In a Medium sized Bowl, whisk together Sugar, Eggs, Vanilla and Red Food Coloring. Add Chocolate Mixture- stir until smooth. Add Flour & Salt and stir until smooth. Put Brownie Mixture in prepared 8 x 8 pan.
Cheesecake Prep: Beat cream cheese, vanilla, egg and sugar until smooth. Put spoonfuls of mixture over brownie batter. Use a knife- swirl the cheesecake mixture into the brownie mixture.
Bake in oven 35-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and then lift parchment out and cut them into squares.
Make sure you keep them refrigerated!
