I looooove red velvet. There’s something really decadent about it and it’s just SO pretty. My mom recently texted me this recipe for Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies and I knew I was going to have to make them, pronto. Sadly they also disappeared from my kitchen pronto. They’re delicious and perfect as a Valentine’s Day treat, or a Christmas dessert. Or for a Tuesday afternoon with a cup of coffee. Whatevs.
I mean, just look at that red velvet with cheesecake combo. To die for. Ready for your new favorite dessert recipe?
Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies
You can see just a touch of browning on the edge of the brownie on top in the picture above. That’s how I knew they were probably done, and when the knife I stuck in a cream cheese swirl came out clean, I knew they were ready to come out of the oven.
I waited maybe 10 minutes and then pulled the entire pan of brownies out of the pan using the aluminum foil that hung over the edge, and placed it on a cooling rack. They cooled faster this way and since everyone was dying to stuff one in, well, it was necessary.
Depending on who you’re sharing these with you might want to buy the ingredients to make 2 batches. The only sad part is that an 8×8 pan goes pretty quickly. If you’re taking them to a party, I’d make two batches or plan to cut them a bit smaller than I did. They’ll be gone in a flash. This recipe is a definite keeper. Enjoy!
