 RED VELVET CREAM CHEESE BROWNIES

 
Ingredients
  • For the brownies:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring (gel or powder)
  • 1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • For the cream cheese:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350F. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper (or butter it generously).
  2. Melt the butter; add sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, red food coloring, and vinegar – stir to combine everything. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs; add eggs to the butter mixture slowly, whisking constantly.
  3. Fold the flour into the mixture, being careful not to overmix. Reserve 1/4 cup of batter for the top and set aside. Pour the remaining batter into the prepared baking pan.
For the cream cheese:
  1. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat cream cheese until soft. Add sugar, egg, and vanilla; beat until combined. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the brownie batter in baking pan.
  2. Dollop remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese layer. Drag a toothpick or knife through the batter to create swirls.
  3. Bake brownies for 25 – 30 minutes, or until the cream cheese is set. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before cutting.

Red Velvet is just chocolate with red food coloring. Originally the red color came from a chemical reaction with the cocoa powder, but now that cocoa powder comes alkalyzed food coloring is used for the red color.

Well, I cut them this morning and put them on the serving plate, which allowed me to eat one ;)
They are AMAZING! I'm definitely making these again and again! Plus, they were sooo easy to put together!
