RED VELVET BROWNIES WITH CHEESECAKE SWIRL

DOESN'T THE SWIRLED TOP MAKE YOU SMILE?WANT A BAR? RECIPE: (ADAPTED FROM A FEW DIFFERENT WEBSITES)
LINE AN 8X8 PAN WITH NONSTICK FOIL AND PREHEAT OVEN TO 350.



1 stick (4 ounces) salted butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 T. red food coloring (i used a big blob of the colored paste)
2 eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour

Cream Cheese Layer:
8 ounces soft cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract



Brownie: Add melted butter to a large bowl and add the sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, food coloring. Whisk in the eggs. Fold in the flour until combined. Spread in the pan and reserve 1/4 cup of the batter for the swirl.
Cream cheese layer: Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Gently spread the cream cheese layer on top of the brownie batter in the pan. Dollop the remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese layer. Using a toothpick, drag the tip through the cream cheese mixture to create a swirl pattern. Bake the brownies for 30 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely. Chill and then cut. Mmmmmmm!

Hi Danielle,

I saw these in the pictures on Facebook and I would love to feature them in our Christmas series (starts Friday!). Please contact me at theluckywife {at} thesaturdayeveningpot {dot} com to let me know if this would be okay with you. I think these would be beautiful for Christmas with the red and white coloring and the pretty swirls.

Thank you!
