These red velvet cheesecake brownies by kawaiisweetworld on YouTube is an easy recipe to make for a Valentine’s Day treat. They can be a nice dessert for all year round if you love cheesecake and brownies. The red swirl on top is festive and I love how it’s simple to make. It’s a great idea to make these instead of regular brownies. I love how the brownies will still be a chooclatey taste because the red comes from the food coloring.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tsp red gel food coloring, or 1 T liquid
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup flour
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
First, preheat the oven to 350F and grease an 8″ x 8″ baking pan, then line with parchment paper. Mix together sugar, vanilla, cocoa, salt, and butter in a large bowl. Stir in the food coloring and whisk the eggs while mixing after each addition. Add in the flour and stir. Reserve about 1/3 – 1/4 cup of brownie batter to swirl on top. Continue to watch kawaiisweetworld on YouTube for full instructions and details.
Next, once the brownies have baked in the oven for 30 minutes, let it cool for about 15-20 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a cutting board. Use a cookie cutter to cut out heart shaped brownies or cut in squares.
Overall, this is a perfect way to make a homemade treat for your special someone. My boyfriend loves brownies, and I am planning on making this for him because it’s so appropriate for the occasion. Plus, I can tweak it however I like because he’s not a big cheesecake fan, so I might do a strawberry icing on top. I can’t wait to make these because they look so moist and I would add chocolate chips.
