Red Velvet Cream Cheese Brownies

SONY DSC

 Ohhhhhhh yum. These brownies are moist, chocolaty, a little creamy due to that cream cheese  layer and perfect for a delicious Valentines Day treat.

I came across the recipe on Pinterest and just HAD to try it out.  The only thing I think I need to play with is the baking temperature and bake time. The recipe says to bake these for an hour and ten minutes. I baked them for about 55 minutes and they were done. The cream cheese layer does brown on top, which I expected after reading the recipe reviews, but if you take a serrated knife it can easily be removed. I think with a little playing around this can be prevented. I’ll update this recipe the next time I make these.

Ingredients

    • 10 Tablespoons butter
    • 3 ounces dark or semisweet chocolate, chopped
    • 1 1/4 cup sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • Red Food Coloring- use as much or as little as you’d like, depending on desired color.
    • 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
For the Cheesecake Layer
  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350. Prepare 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper long enough to hang over on two sides, making it easier to remove from pan once baked. Spray pan and paper.
    2. In small saucepan over medium heat, or in the microwave, melt chocolate and butter until smooth on low heat. Allow to cool slightly.
    3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, vanilla and red food coloring with the sugar. Slowly add in chocolate mixture until well combined.
    4. In small bowl, sift together cocoa, salt and flour.  Add mixture to rest of batter. Do not overmix.
    5. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
For the Cheesecake Layer
  1. Beat ingredients together until smooth. Pour over brownie batter. Use sharp knife to swirl together.
  2. Bake 55-60 minutes, or until just set and toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool. Enjoy!
