Red- Velvet- Cheesecake- Brownies

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies




2 ounces dark chocolate, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 teaspoons red food coloring

2/3 cup all purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1/3 cup sugar

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract




Preheat oven to 350F.

Line an 8- or 9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and lightly grease.

In a small, heatproof bowl, melt butter and chocolate in the microwave on HIGH, stirring at 30-second intervals. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and red food coloring.

Add the chocolate mixture and stir until smooth. Batter should be red. (If a brighter red is desired, add an additional 1/2 tsp food coloring.)

Add flour and salt and stir until just combined and no streaks of dry ingredients remain.

Pour into prepared pan and spread into an even layer; set aside

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until smooth.

Drop in dollops onto prepared brownie batter. Gently swirl two batters with a butter knife to create a marbled effect.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until brownies are set and the edges will be lightly browned.

Cool in the pan completely before slicing and serving, either at room temperature or slightly chilled.
