Red Velvet Brownies combine the flavours of vanilla and chocolate in these chewy and gooey brownies with a cream cheese swirl. These brownies are based on the classic red velvet cake recipe but made into a gooey brownie.
Red velvet is one of my many loves. The interesting combination of both vanilla and chocolate accented with the creamy cheesecake like frosting – or in the case of these red velvet brownies – swirl.
This new form of red velvet is in the form of brownies with a cheesecake swirl throughout. These contain more cocoa than most other red velvet recipes for more of a chocolate flavour due to these being brownies but they still have they sweet, subtle vanilla charm of a classic red velvet recipe.
Mix that with the creamy and sweet cheesecake swirl and you have a winner of a brownie!
