Red Velvet Swirl Brownies

I got this recipe from Moogie and Pap.

When you make this recipe, make sure to sneak and eat a little of the batter. It is sooo good. These are yummy, easy and turn out beautiful. What a unique treat!

Red Velvet Layer
1 stick unsalted butter, melted

1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Pinch salt
1 tablespoon red food coloring
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour

Ingredients Cream Cheese Layer
8 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease 8x8 in pan.

2. Brownie layer: Add melted butter to a large bowl and add the sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, food coloring, and vinegar, in that order, mixing between additions. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and stir it into the cocoa mix. Fold in the flour until lightly combined. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, saving 1/4 cup of the batter for the top.

3. Cream cheese layer: Blend 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 skewer or the tip of a knife, 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 before cutting


  1. Yum, these look sinful! Thank you for the recipe!
