Red Velvet Brownies

Valentine’s Day is almost here so to celebrate I wanted to do a red velvet recipe. Cupcakes are everywhere so when I stumbled upon this recipe from I thought perfect! They are easy to make and not to sweet. I don’t think it’s possible to go wrong with chocolate and cream cheese!

Pinch of salt

1 tsp vinegar
2 eggs
¾ cup Partially Sifted Flour

Cream Cheese Layer

1 pkg cream cheese
¼ cup sugar

Combine brownie ingredients in order one at a time being sure to beat between each addition. Pour batter into a greased 8x8 pan saving about ¼ cup of batter to top cream cheese layer.

Beat together cream cheese layer ingredients and layer on top of brownie layer. Dollop the remaining brownie batter on top of cream cheese layer and use a knife to create a swirl pattern. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.
