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
1 tablespoon red food coloring
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
Ingredients Cream Cheese Layer
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
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
