Day 320: Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

This recipe might just be my favorite. I cannot make it too often because I can seriously eat the entire pan. Seriously. I made these today at 3:00pm and there are probably only three or four brownies left now at 10:45pm. I actually am surprised there are any left!

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

You need:
1/2 cup butter
2-oz dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp red food coloring
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt 

For cream cheese mixture:
8-oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

What you need to do:

Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and lightly grease.

In a small bowl melt butter and chocolate together. Stir with a fork until very smooth. In another bowl mix together sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and red food coloring. Add in the chocolate mixture and stir until smooth. Add flour and salt and stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour into pan and spread into an even layer.

In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Drop onto prepared brownie batter. Gently swirl two batters with a butter knife.

Bake for 35 minutes until brownies and cheesecake are set.
